Electrical contractor

We are an experienced electrical contractor based in the UK. Electrical contracting is defined as the installation of cables, wires and accessories for the purpose of carrying electrical power from the point of generation or transmission to the end user. The electrical contracting market in the UK continues to experience growth, driven by the level of activity in areas of the construction industry, in particular, housing, industrial and commercial building, the public sector, infrastructure, and repairs, maintenance and refurbishment.

New legislation calling for electrical safety to become part of the UK Building Regulations will have a significant impact on the electrical contractor industry, who will be forced to become registered with one of the national bodies that represent the market, and demonstrate high levels of competence. These changes will increase the need for investment in training and could serve to raise costs for many firms, forcing some micro or one-man operations out of business.

David Sykes Electrical is registered to carry out work to Approved Part P of the Building Regulations for England and Wales, where from January 2005 all electrical work in dwellings (generally houses and flats) will become subject to statutory requirements. There are two legal requirements, as follows:

'Reasonable provision shall be made in the design installation, inspection and testing of electrical installations in order to protect persons from fire and injury.'

'Sufficient information shall be provided so that persons wishing to operate, maintain or alter an electrical installation can do so with reasonable safety.'

David Sykes Electrical is one of the UK's long-standing independent electrical contractors providing electrical services for public and private sector customers in domestic, commercial, industrial and leisure markets. Our activities include project management, design, supply, installation, testing, commissioning of mechanical, electrical control and instrumentation systems.

Over the years our reputation has grown in line with our ability to add value to the construction process by providing cost-effective solutions based on service, quality and professionalism. An experienced fully trained team, assisted by the very latest computer systems and procedures, closely manages the company.

The result today is a sustainable company that leads in the field of electrical installation and maintenance services across the market sectors. A company whose growth has been due to repeat business gathered via client recommendations. More importantly, this is a company that never loses sight of the fact that every client is unique and that future business depends on being better than the competition.
