Electrical

 

 

Part P Registration

I am registered with Stroma to enable me to certify my electrical work under Part P of the Building Regulations. More about Part P.

Types of Work Covered

I offer the full range of electrical installation work in both domestic and commercial premises:

Installation of wall or ceiling lights, switches and dimmers.

Replacement of lamps (light bulbs and fluorescent tubes).

Lighting in lofts, garages, etc.

Security lighting installation.

New sockets added and singles converted into doubles.

Diagnosis and repair of electrical faults, including central heating controls.

Replacement consumer units.

Outdoor sockets and lighting.

Replacement of electric hobs and ovens.

Electric showers.

Emergency repairs.

Installation and repair of telephone extensions.

Some appliance repairs.

Inspection, testing and reporting on electrical installations.

Landlords

If you let out property, you have an obligation to ensure that the electrical installation is safe. The best way of doing this is to commission an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) and then act on any recommendations for repair or improvement.

House Buying

If you're hoping to make an offer on a property, I can offer a quick visual inspection or a full Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). This would identify any existing faults and areas for improvement.

Electrical DIY

If you're planning some DIY electrical work but want to get it "signed off" properly, I may be able to help. I won't certify an already finished project (no reputable electrician will) but if you get me in at the start and agree the details, you should be able to save money by doing some of the work, eg chasing out walls, drilling holes and digging trenches.

Qualifications

My qualifications and courses include:
2005: City & Guilds 2381, Certificate in the Requirements for Electrical Installations
2006: City & Guilds 2391, Certificate in Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations
2010: City & Guilds 17th edition update to 2381
2011: Update course for Amendment 1 of BS7671:2008
