Whilst Dave Challinor’s side continue to dazzle on the field, local electrical engineers PEI-Delta are looking to provide the spark off it.
Based on Poulton Business Park, the electrical engineering and contracting company, now in their 20th year, work nationally on electrical design, installation and maintenance for such clients as Hilton Hotels, Whitbread, Premier Inn, Zara, Mango and locally Ribby Hall and Partington’s Group.
Their first major project was the installation of the Pepsi Max Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach and their most recent largescale project was a 178-bedroom Hilton Hotel in Southampton at the Ageas Bowl with spa, ballroom and full press and media suite.
Managing director Bob Gallagher said: “Personally it’s very exciting for me to work on such a prestigious project.”
“We are based and live locally and the majority of our staff are from the local area so we support the ethos of Mill Farm and AFC Fylde. It is a truly locally based entity with their roots firmly embedded within the community.”
“Over the last 20 years we have worked all over the UK and Ireland, so it’s a great chance to work locally on such a large project.”
“As well as working alongside Wardens, the main contractors, and the professional design team on the base-build and infrastructure for the stadium and pitch, we are also working with Mill Farm Ventures and their design team on the fit-out of the function suite, supporters bar and Mediterranean restaurant.
“Our role involves pitch lighting, road lighting, fire alarms, lighting control, PA and voice evacuation system, data and audio-visual systems. It has certainly been a challenging project, but a highly satisfying one so far.
“Having been involved in the background in an advisor capacity during the early development stages for over two years, it is exciting to now see everyone’s hard work coming to fruition and the project starting to take shape before our eyes.
“The challenge now is to bring all the different electrical elements together to ensure that the project comes in on time, on budget and to the high quality that such a prestigious development deserves.
“We are especially looking forward to the first AFC Fylde match played on the new pitch so we can see our work is truly complete.”
