The Requirements

Lightning Strike were the preferred contractor to work on the structure of the HSE Offices, a building which houses commercial offices. After a detailed consultation, a full extensive lightning protection instalment was estimated at £19,000. As this was over budget we offered an alternative solution which didn’t skimp on the level of protection and cost a fraction of the price.


After suggesting an ESE system as an alternative lightning protection solutions costing only £3,000, a saving of £16,000 was implemented. As the building was used for commercial offices it was imperative that disruption was kept to a minimum, resulting in a precise but quick implementation which took only one day to complete. We were given a 5 year testing contract, which was agreed upon to ensure that BS EN 62305 standards are being met year after year and that the HSE offices receive a quality service.
