McConnells are the retail sector’s installation specialists in the UK and Eire, with full NICEIC and Safe Electric, formerly the Register of Electrical Contractors of Ireland (RECI).

The electrical contracting services we offer include:

  • Design and Build Open Close

    Electrical installations in the UK and Eire

    We take the ‘right first time and on time’ approach to every project, based on understanding the needs of our clients and recognising the importance of meeting every deadline. We believe this commitment to excellence has contributed to long standing appointments from many leading high street names over the years.

    Taking total responsibility for every aspect of an installation from the initial drawings of the planning stage through to completion and the final hand over, we are proactive and mindful of our clients’ time constraints. Each project is headed up by a contracts manager who ensures the exacting standards of our clients are met at all times and oversees the dedicated installation team in their progress. We conduct regular site visits, arranging meetings which act as discussions forums to discuss any design or programme changes and liaise with the client or other contractors on site.

    We operate a stringent checking policy throughout all projects, examining every aspect at each stage of process to ensure our zero snagging policy is adhered to. This is augmented by a comprehensive final inspection and testing phase, which ensures all elements are completed as planned when the point of hand over is reached.

    We offer a complete design and build package, and can also design circuitry on a bespoke basis from positional drawings.

    Our design capacity means that we can guide projects from the inception stage right through to completion, making us the integrated electrical installation solution provider of choice for retail, industrial and commercial clients.

    Once a design has been approved, our installation teams take the reins for the duration of the project, including testing and commissioning, along with the production of handover documentation and support manuals.

  • Lighting Open Close

    We are adept at producing cost effective and highly efficient lighting design schemes, including scaled lighting plans, full lighting circuit plans, specific lighting control systems and quality lighting schemes. Our portfolio of projects features design and installations in:

    • Retail
    • Industrial
    • Car parks
    • Exteriors
    • Showgrounds

    We design and produce lighting schemes using the latest technology to benefit our clients with lower maintenance costs and reduced energy bills. Our lighting schemes determine the correct lux levels specified by our clients or by the Cibse Lighting Lux Level Guide in order to meet standards required. McConnells lighting designers have many years of experience in meeting clients’ needs through consultation; listening and understanding needs and desires which is necessary for creating the ideal lighting scheme solutions.

  • Emergency Lighting Open Close

    Installers of safe and reliable emergency lighting

    We carry out all aspects of electrical work associated with the provision of a safe and reliable emergency lighting system, whether for a new build or an improvement programme for your existing facilities.

    As part of our remit we offer a full design service for emergency lighting systems to British Standard BS5266.

    We possess a thorough working knowledge of the emergency lighting systems on the market, and stand ready to advise you on the wide range of emergency lighting options available. We can also deliver systems to your own specifications, depending on the project.

    Whatever the type of building and its usage, we ensure that your legal requirements are met, and that all work is carried out in accordance with the relevant British Standards.

  • Inspection & Testing Open Close

    Inspection and testing services for electrical installations

    The inspection and testing of an installation is one of the most important aspects in helping to ensure that a project meets the highest standards. We ensure all installations we provide are inspected and tested by one of our qualified Testing Engineer Team, and also have the capacity to provide an inspection and testing service for installations not provided by McConnells.

    We ensure all our work meets relevant standards, complying with IEE Wiring Regulations and BS7671, as well as checking against our own in-house quality control criteria. An in-house quality assurance procedure based on ‘zero tolerance snagging’ is fundamental, as is ongoing ‘self-snagging’ so that once installed, your installation will be ready to go live as required.

    All Testing Engineers are qualified to City & Guilds 2391 to conduct site visits and carry out inspection and testing, giving us an independent review of the quality of the installation and workmanship.

  • Fire Alarm Installations Open Close

    Design and installation for fire alarm systems

    We provide a full design service for the supply and installation of fire alarms, from conventional set-ups through to monitored analogue addressable systems. Using the latest air sampling technology, we can provide high sensitivity systems for sites with rigorous fire safety requirements.

    As a well-established electrical contracting company, we see it as part of our remit to keep abreast of changing legislation and advances in the products, systems and technologies we use in our day-to-day work, affording our clients access to the latest and safest systems available.

    All installations are designed and installed to comply with the latest British Standards BS5839 and our service includes the testing and completion schedules issued for each project as standard.
