 Extent of the Work


When entering into an agreement for electrical inspection and testing of a building under your control it is a requirement that the extent and limitations of the inspection and testing are fully described. 
We recommended that the following be agreed prior to commencement of the work, and we can assist you in determining your exact requirements for inspection and testing.
It is neither practical nor possible to inspect all parts of an installation; we will agree a sampling process of all accessories, fittings and control equipment.  The percentage will be agreed depending on the condition of the installation.  If a greater percentage is deemed necessary then this increase will be discussed and agreed prior to this additional work being carried out.

For much of the testing the electrical system will be switched off.  If this is a problem we can arrange the work at times when this is more convenient.
We will agree before commencing the work the amount of down time that can be tolerated and arrange a provisional program for switching off – totally, and individual areas or distribution boards if required.  

 

Cost of the Work

This will be largely based around the extent of the work as described above, and as such we cannot quote fixed prices for such variable possibilities.  But to give you some idea of costs we would aim to complete a full Electrical Installation Condition Report to BS 7651 (Periodic Inspection), Test, and Certification of an average domestic dwelling house as follows.
