LTFC Premier League Project! #COYH
With a long-standing relationship with Luton Town Football Club, we were delighted to be selected as principal M&E contractor for the Premier League ground upgrade project.

Various locations within the ground required new power supplies. The main area being the outside broadcast building, this was to ensure provisions were made for the external broadcasting lorries to connect to the stadium electrical supply, reducing the need for diesel generators.

The newly installed Bobber’s stand is an impressive new structure and is home to over 1000 new seats. FPM installed power and data containment, distribution boards, lighting and sockets across the new gantry which houses the media personnel. Installation of power and lighting was also added in media rooms, stadium bars, concourses, conference, and hospitality rooms alongside the newly installed TV studio and executive box.

The ground also required mechanical elements, these included:

·        Installation of cold and hot water infrastructure.
·        Central heating to the concourse areas.
·        Mechanical ventilation to kitchens and toilets.
·        Air conditioning to IT server rooms.
·        Installation of a new boiler in the main stand.

Twenty distribution boards were also installed across the ground alongside over 200 sockets and UPS’s for VAR vans and goal line technology. Premier league standards required a back-up generator on site, which powers the floodlights, stadium lightning, and broadcast critical sockets in the event of a power outage.

Take a look below at some key figures:

·        120 new circuits.
·        Over 100 new light fittings.
·        Over 200 sockets ranging from 13A to 125A.
·        12km of cable from 1.5mm² to 185mm².
·        20 distribution boards.
·        3 panel boards.
·        5 UPS’s (Uninterruptible power supply)
·        1 generator.

It has been an extremely busy summer, and we are extremely grateful to Luton Town Football Club for giving us the opportunity to be involved with this project. The football club is something FPM is very passionate about with many of our engineers being supporters and season ticket holders for many years.

FPM continue to provide site presence which included the first few games to ensure everything ran smoothly. We wish the club all the best for the future and a successful season in the Premier League.
