Project Wilmot

A typical renovation for any project can be broken down into two main phases: first fix and second fix.

These phases encompass and lay a path for the correct steps taken in the installation of electrical systems and accessories, ensuring they are safe, up to code, and ready for daily use.

Project Phases

Phase 1

Before any work begins, a detailed plan and design is created, considering the properties layout, client’s needs, and vision.

Consumer unit (also known as fuse board or distribution board) upgrades or relocation is always considered to accommodate the increased number of circuits, electrical load from modern appliances, RCD/RCBO protection and futureproofing.

Phase 2

Running of cables through walls, ceilings, and floors with install of cable containment as per the planned layout.

Positions of wiring for lighting circuits, power outlets and any specialised circuits such as EV charging or outdoor cabin supply is considered with necessary liaison with client to confirm positions.

Upon completion of first fix, our qualified electrical inspector reviews in-depth to approve the work and ensures notification to the local building authority.

Phase 3

Second fix stage begins with installations of electrical accessories such as sockets, luminaires, switches and decorative faceplates etc.

Phase 4

Testing is undertaken to ensure compliance with electrical standards and no breakdown of any cabelling has occured.

This will consist of testing of each circuit installed via continuity, insulation resistance, earth fault loop impedance and RCD to verify that each circuits are working correctly and safely.

A final visual inspection is undertaken by our electrician to ensure the entire electrical installation is safe and compliant with electrical regulations.

Phase 5

Labelling of the consumer unit and documentation is issued to the client.

A final walkthrough of completed works is stated to provide evidence of completion meeting the clients desires and needs alongside provision of warrenties.

Operation of circuits is demonstrated alongside aftercare to provide continuation of long life to the electrical installation and measures to take in the event of faults arising.
