Pop Up Power Supplies have installed 12 new electricity units at The Hepworth Wakefield Garden. The gardens host regular fairs and markets throughout the year and these required a safe and convenient supply of electricity.
The Hepworth Wakefield Garden, which will be one of the UK’s largest free public gardens, was designed by Tom Stuart-Smith. Pop Up Power Supplies' electricity units were specified on the project and the units were installed by the company in 2019.
A total of 12 PUPS3030 Floor-boxes were installed around the perimeter of the area to allow electricity to be accessed from multiple points. Manufactured entirely from stainless steel the Floor-box is fitted with 16A single phase IP67 sockets.
The PUPS02 In Ground Unit allows for power distribution to be entirely hidden even during operation. The cover for each unit is slightly recessed and infilled with the exact substrate of the surrounding area. Each unit is seamlessly hidden within the ground and the power cables then run directly from the unit to the nearby stall. Each cable has a safety guard protector. Pop Up Power also supply electricity through Bollards in a variety of designs to suit the surroundings.
The Hepworth Wakefield is an award winning art gallery in the heart of Yorkshire. The building itself was designed by David Chipperfield Architects and opened in May 2011. It is predominately a gallery space but also hosts regular fairs and markets throughout the year to support artists and local makers. It is for this purpose that an external electricity supply is required.
