Cheltenham Racecourse – Commercial

Cheltenham Racecourse’s £45million redevelopment included the creation of a new five and a half storey grandstand which had to be completed in time for The Festival in 2016.

UKPS were initially brought into this project to install a new privately owned transformer. The client was impressed with our work and appointed UKPS to undertake new connection works for adoption, comprising the build of a new High Voltage metered supply to cater for the increased load requirements.

The customer was impressed by how quickly we were able to produce a quotation and mobilise once the order had been placed. In addition to the new connection works UKPS were also able to undertake the installation of private HV cable and transformers onsite.

With events scheduled for the racecourse, speed of delivery and flexibility were key to the successful delivery of this project. The solution included the design, supply and installation of 3,500m of HV cable and 1,700m of offsite excavation.

Throughout the project UKPS were able to meet the customer’s demanding timescales, completing the connection on time and to budget.
