Electrical Installation Condition Reports

For more than 20 years, our team has been carrying out electrical inspections - more commonly known as periodic inspection and tests. Now known as either domestic electrical installation condition reports or just simply electrical installation condition reports for non-domestic work. With a huge database of existing customers, we're often asked to test their installations regularly. Landlords need to keep up to date with their certification, and commercial businesses are also required by their insurance companies to ensure that their electrical installations fully comply with current wiring requirements. Our customers include:

* Schools
* Offices
* Warehouses
* Farms and Agricultural Installations
* Commercial & Domestic Landlords
* People Buying / Selling Domestic Properties

A Thorough Inspection

We advise that both domestic and commercial customers have their electrics checked every 5 years to ensure that protective devices and RCD's are working correctly and continue to give protection to consumers. Typically, we'll inspect approximately 25% of the electrical installation, making sure that the standard is of a high quality. We'll make sure to look at the parts that are not normally accessible.

Professional Testing

At Craddock Electrical Services Ltd, we test 100% of electrical circuits, unless there is a reason why we cannot do so. For instance, some offices will not allow any power circuit downtime and the accessibility of some high-level lighting might be beyond the scope of the test. The test results and any recommendations and observations will then be typed into our certification software and can be emailed to you in PDF format. We also print a hard copy, which we sign and forward in the post. We are often asked to provide estimates for any remedial works required in order for the installation to comply with the latest version of BS 7671, which we are always very happy to do.

Doing Our Own Work

Please note, that we recently decided to stop testing other electrician's installations. This is because we believe that any contractor who is carrying out installation work should take the responsibility to certify their own work and not rely on a 3rd party to do this for them. It is in the customers' best interests to employ the services of a company who can design, install, and certify their work and who takes responsibility for their own doings.

Specialists in Industrial installations

Industrial installations have always been a favourite for a lot of electrical contractors, and we are right at home in this environment. We have the manpower to carry out full factory and warehouse fit-outs if required, and our staff are trained and licensed to operate powered access equipment like scissor lifts and articulated boom lifts. We also hold PASMA™ licenses, which allow us to build and work safely from mobile scaffold towers where powered access is not possible. Typical industrial and agricultural installations include:

* 3-Phase Distribution and Installations
* New Factory / Warehouse Fit-Outs
* Energy Efficient Industrial LED Lighting Installations and Upgrades
* New Grain Stores
* Main Panel Board Installations, in Excess of 100 Amps Per Phase
* New Supplies to Machinery, Fork Lift Chargers Etc.
* External LED Floodlighting
* Electrical Installation Condition Reports
