How often should we have our office's electrical system checked?

It’s good practice to have your office’s electrical systems professionally inspected at least once every five years. However, if your office uses a lot of electrical equipment, you may need inspections more frequently.

What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)?

An EICR is a detailed report that a professional electrician provides you after your office’s electrical system has been inspected. It tells you the condition of your electrical system and if any work is needed to keep it safe.

Commercial Project

What our customers think

Placed an emergency call out with Hopkins Electrical as I had lost all power to my house. Chris turned up within 60 minutes of me placing the call and found that a rat had bitten through one of the cables. He made a temporary repair and then came back a couple of days later and replaced the fuse board and the cabling. Neat job, very professional and very reasonably priced.

Michael Underwood

Chris and his team talked us through the whole re wiring process and made sure we had enough sockets and switches in the right places before we started any work. They turned up on time and were very professional in their approach to out very large project. They were always easy to get hold of and would always offer good solutions to any problems we had with our build.

When they came and undertook the work I was so impressed with the transparency and integrity of their employee who talked me though everything. The work was done to a high standard and I have no problem giving them 5 stars. Great company, great service.
