    Hoover Building

    Tesco and EIC bring life to the stunning Hoover Building

    The Hoover Building is one of the UK’s finest examples of Art Deco architecture. It has been a landmark on the outskirts of London since its construction in 1932. Having been home to the Hoover Company for more than 50 years, the site was also used to manufacture electrical aircraft components during WW2 (at which time the entire building was coated in camouflage colours and netting).

    Not only is the site Grade II listed, it is also 'of special historic interest'. This meant that any refurbishment work carried out by Tesco and EIC was subject to scrutiny from many government agencies, including English Heritage.

    Alexander Stadium

    EIC helps create a brand new sports stadium in Birmingham

    A new 5,000 seat stadium was pre-designed and built at Alexander Stadium, Birmingham.  The new arena contained a concessions area, offices and gymnasium.  To ensure a sustainable development, an environmental strategy was created which incorporated the conservation of fuel and power and the monitoring of energy performance.  This, together with low carbon choices and offsets, generated a low carbon footprint for the building with no reduction in the high quality services for the client.

    The EIC team worked closely with Thomas Vale's Engineering Consultants Van Zyl & de Villiers (VZDV) to maximise the potential for energy efficiency and sustainability.

    St Michaels Mount

    EIC helps restore the magnificent St Michael’s Mount

    During this three year project, EIC totally refurbished the mechanical and electrical installation of the medieval castle, church and private areas on St Michael’s Mount. Working on a National Trust property brings unique challenges in the form of regulation and other specific requirements. In this case, the main issue was the Mount being almost cut-off from the mainland during high tides.

    With our experience of listed status, EIC were fully prepared for the task. Meticulous planning meant that the location of the project did not result in delays.
