Just reading through that scares the hell out of me. Not looking forward to this unit at all.

Don't treat the question as a whole, break it down into its individual parts.

So for part A search online for luminaires and select ones that fill the criteria in the question.

For example 600x600mm LED panel lights 40w rating 4000K colour. Some units will be fitted with 3 hour emergency backup units to comply with emergency lighting regulations.

Units will have to have a suitable IP rating to use within the pool area, refer to section 7 of BS7671 for specific IP ratings in pool areas etc etc.

Hi John,

I'm currently doing the same project.

The hotel rooms are like premier inns rooms. sockets either side of beds, 2 double socket on table for tv, kettle etc & socket by the sofa, heater fcu by the door & towel rail fcu outside of the bathroom.
CU in each room by the door.

when i get back home i'll convert my visio file to pdf & pm you so you can take a look.

maybe we can buddy up on this & throw ideas about?

For a further hint:
I used to Inspect hotels, each floor had a distribution board supplying small (4 or 6 way) boards in each room. Maybe a power cct, lights, shower etc ...

Do they have consumer units in each room?

Yes helps make it easier for load balancing on 3phase & also for not inducing faults into other rooms when a fault occurs.

Also hallway has CU
I take it that this is locked away behind an access panel.

Yes and the last one I looked in was a right untidy mess, and it was only 4 circuits!

rather than doing my drawing for the hotel room by hand is there a software i could use, because drawing all the cables on paper looks messy

I agree anthonybragg
Seems to that a lot of new members joining today & yesterday are wanting help but their not asking any questions other than can i see your project so i know what to do?
Sorry but your designing it not me, im happy to respond to specific questions but remember like you im also on a time limit doing my project.
Maybe show a mentor via pm what you have done so they can then guide you in the right direction?

The traditional response to this is: Give it a go, show us your attempt and people will critic it.
You'll learn bugger all copying other people's work.

Harsh but fair! :)

Can anyone help with question 2f it says show on the copy of the drawing any further distribution boards that may be required in the hotel extension.
Obviously there’s 1 for each room so that’s 14 but I don’t know anywhere else that I’d need one, Anyone give any advice?
