The MSE team is delighted to handle the electrical installation for an extraordinary self-build project in rural South Northamptonshire. 
We’ll be getting underway soon and will keep you updated. In the meantime, here are some things to think about for new build and self-build projects. 

Think about all your home services 

Your property needs electricity, plumbing, ventilation and heating. Good installation and maintenance keeps everything working properly. For your electrical installations, the work must meet Part P Building Regulations. Making sure all your on-stie teams can work together will save you time and money. 

Notifiable electrical work 

For safety, some parts of your electrical installation are ‘notifiable’ under the Regulations. These must be approved by your local building control authority. The best solution is to use professional electricians for your installations. 
Electrical installations covered by Part P include: 
new consumer units or fuse boxes 
new circuits 
existing circuit alterations 
full rewiring 
partial rewiring 
circuits close to ‘special locations’ such as baths and showers. 

Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC) 

As the property owner, you’ll want to avoid damage and make sure it’s safe for your family and anyone visiting. An EIC confirms the necessary electrical inspections have been carried out and you have a proper electrical installation. 
For existing electrics, a detailed inspection will identify overloaded circuits and repairs that might be needed. This helps prevent long-term damage to your property. It can also identify opportunities to save some money on your electricity bills. 
Some insurers might ask to see your electrical inspection certificate if you need to make a claim. An EIC is also a useful way to show you have maintained your property if you ever decide to sell. 
We’ll be happy to advise you about any type of domestic electrical installation, so please get in touch.
