Building a new office block

We have a big site at work but after the company expanded we were running very short on office space. Most of our accounts team was in a demountable office and they were really hot in summer and cold in winter. It was so much better for the whole team once we got the new office block built on site. This blog talks about the process of building a new office block, including the design and construction of a block for your team. I hope it will be useful for anyone looking to build a new office block on their site.

Top 5 Electrical Renovations to Consider for Your Home

Troy Medina

Thinking of giving your home's electrical system and associated equipment a much-needed upgrade?  

Whether you're looking to modify your existing electrical power system or replace antiquated electrical appliances and components, it is important to establish your priorities. There are many great electrical renovations you could do, but renovation costs often stand in the way of what you want to do and what you can do.

Here are five electrical renovations that can deliver great value to your home.

1. Scaling up Your Home's Voltage Output

Over time, you may need to connect new or higher voltage appliances to your domestic power supply. But like other low-voltage homes, your power supply may not have the capacity to accommodate the extra equipment. 

Asking an electrical contractor to increase your domestic voltage capacity will allow you to use electrical equipment that would otherwise overload your power supply.

2. Adding Electrical Outlets

Installing additional electrical outlets in existing rooms can make your home more organised and functional. For example, you won't have to run electrical cords across rooms or from room to room to power some home appliances. This can also help to improve home safety, especially where current-carrying cords lie on the floors. 

3. Installing a More Efficient Water Heater

If you get your hot water supply from an antiquated electric water heater, it may be the contributing to the high electricity bills you receive from your power company every month. Replacing the hot water system with a newer, more energy-efficient model can help to save energy and keep monthly electricity bills at a minimum. 

4. Rewiring Your Home

Need to bring your domestic wiring up to standard? The old wiring may be playing up because it is worn out and needs to be replaced. An electrical contractor can remove any worn out wiring and replace it with new, quality wiring that will provide robust performance for many years to come.

They'll choose the right electrical wire for your home based on gauge, circuit amperage, and wattage load.  

5. Swapping Out a Fuse Board with a Switchgear Board

Upgrading from a fuse board to a switchgear board is a great way to protect your domestic appliances from potential damage due to system overloads. Withdrawable switchgears, for example, can be easily removed and reinstalled for maintenance. This helps to decrease the length of power outages.
