Pop Up Power Supplies were delighted to be asked to install 13 new electricity units at The Hepworth Wakefield, one of the UK’s largest free public gardens designed by Tom Stuart-Smith. Pop Up Power Supplies were contracted to install the new units within the grounds of the gallery gardens.
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.
The PUPS3030 Floor-boxes were installed around the perimeter of the area, allowing electricity to be accessed from multiple and varying points. Manufactured entirely from stainless steel the Floor-box is fitted with 16A single phase IP67 sockets. Hepworth have 12 of these units. 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.
