A new primary substation was required to service the proposed Bedford Meadows development being constructed by David Wilson Homes. MLM were appointed by Morrison Utility Services and UK Power Networks to undertake the design of the substation.

The works comprised the design of two transformer bunds complete with acoustic enclosures, 11kV switchroom and associated roads and drainage.

The planning consent had already been granted when MLM were appointed and as such it was difficult to implement a number of cost saving measures which had previously been implemented on other similar sites.

Some concrete cubes for a number of areas indicated that the concrete was below the specified strength. MLM undertook further testing and assessed the structure and durability of the affected areas. This work concluded that the affected areas would be satisfactory following the application of a coating to the external exposed faces of the concrete.
