Full electrical installation at the Centre of Tissue Regeneration and Repair at the University of Edinburgh’s biomedical campus.

The University of Edinburgh

We proudly completed the electrical installation for the Centre of Tissue Regeneration and Repair at the University of Edinburgh’s new biomedical campus.  Working in collaboration with Balfour Beatty, our role was critical in all three phases of the electrical installation:

The initial phase involved the  installation of trunking, basket, and tray systems, laying the foundational framework for the subsequent electrical work.

During the second phase, our skilled commercial electricians engaged in wiring, along with fitting out smart lighting systems and electrical outlets.

The final phase included the installation of emergency lighting systems, followed by testing and commissioning of the entire electrical system, ensuring safety and functionality.

The phase one of this project spanned 13 months, culminating in a successful handover.  We then progressed to phase two, mirroring the works in phase one in terms of duration and complexity, and successfully completed it in December 2023.

Our involvement in this project underscores our  our capability to handle large-scale, intricate commercial electrical installations.  It stands as a testament to our expertise in contributing to the development of cutting-edge research facilities.

Leonardo hotels lighting installed by Ideal Electrical.

Leonardo Hotels

Leonardo Hotels, known for crafting unique, high-end hotels that reflect their localities, set ambitious goals for their new Royal Hotel in Edinburgh.

Following their successful entry into the Great Britain market with the Leonardo Hotel London Heathrow Airport in March 2015, the Leonardo Hotel Group expanded into Scotland by taking over the Leonardo Hotel Edinburgh City Center. This centrally located hotel, nestled in the vibrant Edinburgh Haymarket area, boasts 282 rooms.

IES was tasked with a challenging but vital role in this expansion. Given Edinburgh’s global renown, particularly during the Edinburgh International festival in August, a tight 10-week working schedule was implemented for the complete electrical refurbishment of the 282 bedrooms, as well as the lobby and restaurant.

Despite the logistical challenges posed by the hotel’s central city location, our team at IES demonstrated exceptional planning and dedication. We successfully met the demanding time-frame, ensuring that every electrical aspect of the hotel, from the individual rooms to the public spaces, was completed to the highest standards.

Our contribution to the Leonardo Hotel Edinburgh City Center highlights our capability to handle intricate and time-sensitive projects, delivering quality and efficiency even under tight deadlines.

New fire alarm system installed at Tynecastle Park for Heart of Midlothian FC.

Heart of Midlothian

Hearts FC, established in 1874, has a rich history, with the club initially playing in various locations across Edinburgh before settling in the Gorgie area in 1881.

Tynecastle Park, their iconic home, has stood on the current site since then, evolving significantly over the years.

In 2016, ambitious plans were unveiled for a new main stand, which began construction during the 2016/17 season and was completed in November 2017.

This project expanded the stadium’s capacity from 17,400 to over 20,000 seats.

Our team at IES played a pivotal role in this transformation. We were entrusted with the crucial task of installing the brand-new fire alarm system throughout the stadium, ensuring standards of safety and compliance. Additionally, we took on the installation of the new speaker system, a vital component for enhancing the matchday experience.

Our team expertly navigated the challenges of gaining high-level access, utilising mobile access equipment to ensure a seamless and efficient installation process.

Our involvement in the redevelopment of Tynecastle Park stands as a testament to our expertise in handling complex, large-scale electrical installations, contributing significantly to the safety and functionality of this historic stadium.
