Date Completed



Department store construction in Oxford City Centre.

Following a 20 week fit out construction programme by Mace Group a new John Lewis department store opened its doors at the new Westgate Mall in Oxford. As well as fashion, cosmetics, home and electrical departments the store also has it’s own restaurant, cafe bar and a Kuoni travel shop.


Paul Earl Limited worked closely with a number of our trusted and fully licensed contractors.

All electrical systems including mains distribution, power, LED lighting, fire alarms, data, public address and generator systems were supplied and installed by Paul Earl Limited and our subcontractors. Electrical design for the project by Synergy BSS. LED lighting supplied by Edge Lighting. Security systems including CCTV, intruder alarm and access control were provided by Orion Security Solutions and the commissioning consultants for the project were Lateral Technologies. BMS systems by Next Controls and data systems by Playfords.

“We were extremely pleased with the quality of the electrical installation workmanship at our new Oxford store and also the way Paul Earl Limited worked as an integral part of the project team, adding value throughout the entire construction programme.”
