Need a qualified electrician?
All it takes is one call to The Belmont Group and it’s done! Our fully qualified electricians will complete your job to the highest safety standards so you’ll have total peace of mind when it comes to your property and its electrical installations.
On completion of the work, The Belmont Group will issue a NICEIC Installation Certificate and, if relevant to the works carried out, will also inform the relevant Local Authority, who will then issue the Part P Building Regulations Certificate directly to you. It’s useful to note that, if you sell the property at a later date, this Certificate may be necessary for your completion of sale.
Part P was introduced in January 2005, as part of UK Building Regulations. It covers electrical installations in the domestic environment, and is enforceable in the same way as any other building regulations. The body that polices it at local level is your building control office. In order to undertake legal electrical work on your domestic property, an electrician must be ‘Part P’ registered. This means they have undertaken all the necessary training, are competent to carry out electrical work safely and are able to certificate the work when completed.
Want to save money with energy-efficient installations? A working environment that helps your employees be more productive? At The Belmont Group we offer a complete office electrical project management service, and can help you make cost-saving decisions.
Test & Inspection
If your Electrical Installation Certification is out of date you may not be covered by your insurance policy and could be liable for prosecution in the event of electrical accidents or fire. The Belmont Group can help you by carrying out an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) on non-domestic properties or DEICR (Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Report) to assess whether your installation is safe. If there are defects, we can provide you with options to prevent them turning into problems.
Just so that you know, an EICR, depending on use and type of property, should be carried out every 1 to 5 years, usually dictated by your insurance policy. A DEICR should be carried out every 5 to 10 years, depending on the age and use of the installation and when there’s a change of occupancy, especially if the property is let to tenants and, even more importantly, if the property is a student let.
The Government has introduced legislative requirements from 1st June 2020 for Landlords in the Private Rented Sector in England. This will require Landlords to have electrical safety checks carried out as follows:
- From 1st July 2020, all new specified tenancies will require an electrical safety check to be in place
- From 1st April 2021, all existing specified tenancies will require an electrical safety check to be in place
The Belmont Group are listed on the PRS register with the NICEIC.
We know that company accountants often need objective figures on return on investment. So when we manage a commercial lighting systems project, we’ll provide detailed financial reports on energy use, projected costs, carbon emissions etc.
Energy-saving lighting is a popular company investment, with larger projects seeing a very favourable return on investment. This is generally 30%-50% return per annum, with costs covered in about 2 to 3 years.
We integrate low energy lighting with intelligent detection systems and no-flicker light fittings. Microwave detection systems know when areas are not being used and will dim the lights to 3% of their energy level. When someone enters the area, the lights will return to 100% immediately, without flickering or needing to warm up. Better lighting, faster and cheaper – brilliant all round!
