Manned 24 hour Call-out Service


Client: Valneva / Bouygues Energies
Project length: 9 months
Completion date: December 2021
HF divisions involved: Electrical

Brief project description: Our Electrical Division were contracted to fitout the new Valneva manufacturing vaccine laboratories and energy centre that was under construction in Livingston.  The electrical installation work required the fitting of various metal containment units across the facility including Ladder Rack, Cable Tray, Trunking and Cable Baskets.

Bio Grade Dado Trunking was specified for the electrical installation within the labs clean room areas which were also fitted with a central battery emergency lighting system.

Across the new facility, various cable types were installed including FP600s, FP200, XLPE SWA and LSF Singles.  In the main server room, Data Baskets and Data Matting were installed while Schneider Isobar P Distribution Boards were fitted at various locations within the facility.

Our electrical team were also required to install Street Lighting and Floodlighting at specified external locations on the site.

Project Challenges: Working alongside various other contractors while dealing with an ever-changing design as works progressed is always a challenge but our electrical team have years of experience in this type of service.

The work had to be completed to a very tight timescales. To achieve this, various shift patterns and extended hours were required by our team to meet the constraints of the programme.

An interesting additional project challenge during this job was that, due to the laboratory clean room environment and air pressure values, all routes into clean rooms had to be suitably sealed to maintain pressures.

Customer Quote: “This was my first experience in using HF as a sub-contractor and I was very pleased with the way that they handled and delivered this challenging project.

With a very tight timeline due to client demand there was many challenges which HF worked very hard to achieve. Their flexibility and willingness to adapt to variations was exceptional given that there were a lot of design changes which came from our main client’s requirements., The site team were very professional and I would have no hesitation in using HF again on any of our projects.”
