Electrical & Mechanical Installation
The Prince’s Regeneration Trust acquired the site in June 2011 to save it from closure and embarked on a long term conservation and regeneration project. Construction works began in autumn 2012 following emergency works that ensured the safety and integrity of the buildings. The pottery also remains operational throughout the development work.
Quartzelec has recently completed the contract to complete a full design and build of the electrical and mechanical installation on the traditional red brick Grade II* listed buildings.
His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales made a return trip to visit Middleport Pottery in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent to re-open the £8.6 million project to safeguard manufacturing at the site. During the visit he met with various contractors including Quartzelec employees involved in the full design and build of the electrical and mechanical installation in the traditional red brick Grade II listed buildings.
“The project at Middleport Pottery is the perfect example of finding solutions using what is already there. Working together to re-use buildings, refurbishing them in honour of their history and heritage, leads to sustainable regeneration.” HRH, The Prince of Wales.
This is the second visit made by The Prince of Wales this year to the Middleport Pottery, the last working Victorian ceramics factory in the UK, famed for producing Burleighware pottery.
