Commercial Electricians for South London Landlords

Every year sees fines dished out to Landlords in south London for breaches of Fire regulations in houses of multiple occupation (HMOs) and hotel owners. In some cases, it is well deserved when unscrupulous landlords do not carry out suitable safety checks in order to increase their profits.
March 2015 saw a 200K fine given to the owner of a Bayswater hotel for breaches in fire regulations. Apart from tying open fire doors and failing to carry out a fire risk assessment for accomodation in he basement, he was found guilty of ‘inadequate maintenance’ of the fire warning system and …

How you can save your south London school money?

Richmond and Sutton Kitchen Wiring Jobs

As commercial and domestic electricians we take on a wide variety of different work and have done a couple of very contrasting kitchen wiring jobs recently. The first was on a house renovation in Richmond whilst the second was a commercial kitchen further south in Sutton. In Richmond, it was a case of taking out 50 year old wiring and starting from scratch whilst the commercial kitchen job was the installation of a new bratt pan (chip scuttle) and oven.
The Richmond house had been recently bought and the new owners were having the kitchen extended and modernised …

Outdoor Lighting in Merton

We had a call during the week from a gardener in the borough of Merton who had managed to cut through the cable of the garden lights that they had had installed a few years ago. They had been thinking about upgrading for a while now and this accident was the prompt. We were pleased to learn that it had been a recommendation by mouth from a friend who had used our services to install exterior garden and patio lighting in Sutton last year.
After a short chat on the phone about the sort of thing that he was after …

Three-Phase Commercial Garage Wiring in Lewisham

We had a recent job in Lewisham at a garage who had bought some new ramps and a rolling road for doing their MoT brake tests. They had been fixed to the floor and needed wiring in. They had contacted an electrician in Lewisham who had not really been up to the job – he was a one-man-band rather than a commercial electrician and had little experience with working on three-phase supplies. He had been round to the garage, taken a look at what was needed and realising that he was out of his depth he backed off …

South London LED Garden Lighting

50w NVC Orlando LED Floodlights

During January, we landed several garden lighting jobs around south London. It’s to be expected I suppose since the middle of winter is largely the ‘closed season’ for gardeners. So they wait until it’s the coldest possible time and then call us in to sort out their lighting! Still, we are well used to working outside and in the cold so it’s all in a day’s work. A client in Dulwich needed passive infrared detectors fitting for their garden floodlights, 50w NVC Orlando LED models. These are stylish and …
