Cabling

Electrical & Data Cabling

If you are looking for quality, affordable electrical and data cabling services, then what do you need to know? It’s not simply a case of choosing a company, but making sure you actually understand what you need from them before they even start.

At Network London we have created this short guide that will help you understand the types of services available, so you can make an educated decision when choosing your provider.

Electrical services typically cover:

  • installation work for retail, financial, industrial or commercial systems, whether a new build or an existing site;
  • simple moves and changes as well as the installation of more complex electrical multi-site services;
  • repairs, maintenance, and inspections.

For a more exhaustive list, please see further down this guide.

Choosing a company

When choosing a company look for one that has fully qualified electricians who are all NICEIC approved (this is the UK’s leading voluntary regulatory body for the electrical contracting industry). That way you can feel confident you’ll be getting the highest level of service and commitment, as well as the highest standards of delivery.

Also, are the company easy to work with? It is very important for people to work together and is imperative that any installation is fully and professionally project managed by collaborating with other providers and services, when required.

The ability to communicate across all services and fully understand what you, the customer wants, is also key to a successful project.

What services should they provide?

  • an experienced company, such as ourselves at Network London, will offer a diverse range of services, in both electrical and building provision;
  • the project should include planning, design, installation and testing, to maintenance, if needed;
  • paying special attention to risk management, and health and safety, as well as providing relevant documentation and CAD drawings and plans as requested should all be part of the service;
  • finally, forward planning beyond the initial installation process is an essential part of preparing you and your business for their electrical future. This means, that should you suddenly need to expand, your existing installation can easily be added to, without the time and unnecessary extra expense of having a brand new system installed.
