APOLLO 3 COMPARTMENT
The UK’s largest manufacturer of Steel Wire Cable Tray, Marco Cable Management has supplied Ysgol-y-Graig, North Wales’ first ever green school, with Apollo 3 Compartment uPVC dado Trunking throughout the building.
Work at the £3.7million Ysgol-y-Graig in Anglesey, built using sustainable timber, has now been completed and lessons have resumed for the school’s 300 pupils. The overall design of the school has been created with sustainable principles in mind. All internal lighting is fitted with energy efficient lamps, and the school generates up to 50% of its own electricity through photovoltaic roof tiles and wind turbines, with surplus energy generated sold to National Grid.
Marco uPVC dado Trunking has been installed at the school to contain the traditional electrical installation, whilst any waste material generated was returned to the Marco manufacturing facility for recycling. Offering several benefits in terms of ease of installation, the use of Marco dado Trunking has had a significant impact on the installation programme reducing costs, time and labour.
Situated in Anglesey, North Wales, near to Marco’s headquarters, the school was visited by several of the Marco team, all of whom were keen to see how the new scheme has developed. Ian MacGregor, Marco Cable Management Managing Director said: “Being situated so close ourselves to Ysgol-y-Graig, it’s great to be part of the local team that helped create a landmark facility such as this. The Marco ethos fell very much in line with the specification and design of the building in terms of sustainability – we are committed to sourcing, managing and recycling in a sustainable manner, and of course, we are almost next door to the school!”
