This was a very nice electrical project to undertake for the customer who wanted a functional electrical installation and a lighting scheme that was both modern and used energy saving fittings.
The builder added a good size extension to the back of the property comprising a ‘summer lounge’, extension to the kitchen to create a good-sized kitchen and dining room, additional shower room/ WC and a master bedroom on the first floor.
In terms of the electrical work I installed the extra circuits required to power up the new rooms and replaced the old consumer unit with a more suitable and up to date version.
The lighting in the kitchen and dining area was a particular pleasure as the customer decided to go for low energy spot lights for their general lighting and some under-cupboard lights for a more relaxed look. The low energy lights were JCC/ Megaman fire rated down-lights which only use 11w per fitting but produce a pretty decent output as you can see. The total lighting energy consumption for the kitchen was 162w for all fittings (that equates to a little over three 50w Halogen lamps).
In the customers ‘summer lounge’ I installed 5A lighting sockets on a dimmer switch, some wall mounted up-lighters and some ceiling lights in order to offer a variety of lighting depending on the rooms use at different times.
