Description of Work: Electrical wiring in a new build property
Duration: March 2014 – June 2014
Grasmere is a very unique property situated in Shillingstone near Blandford Forum. Originally an old bungalow, the property has been completely demolished and there now stands a brand new two storey family home.
The house is not your standard build; the owner has used an innovative German factory pre-fabricated build system that resulted in the main structure of the house being built in only 5 days. The property is then sent across from Germany and built here.
Wessex Electricals have carried out wiring throughout the whole house which includes lighting, power and a home automation control system which allows access to adjust the lighting and heating from a smartphone. The house was designed by RB Studio Architects, and has been featured on BBC 2’s Building Dream Homes in June of this year.
“Wessex won the bid for our electrical installation and from the outset I am thankful that we went with them. The whole team from planning through to delivery have made the process clear and reassuring. Being inexperienced in house building and the complexity of the services that goes into it, having a transparent quote and breakdown of delivery left me with no hidden surprises as the scope of my wish list grew.
Also dealing with a larger firm gave me the flexibility of upping the man power, which helped when I couldn’t make my mind up and hence delaying other crews on site. Finally the teams on site were professional and a real pleasure to work with”
