I am looking for pro advice on kitchen electrical installation.

Currently in the process of old kitchen being replaced, cancelled registered electrician that I had initially booked up after joiner handling the the job said he could get an electrician in sooner and get it signed off. Which I initially thought was perfectIMG-20201014-WA0000.jpg but now having second thoughts, from what I have been told from other fully trained electricians with regards to work being carried out, regulations etc.

The job at hand was to fit as follows -




Fit small 2 way fuse box for kitchen sockets and cooker. ( Decided to go with this to keep costs down, as main consumer unit would need to replaced due to age.)
Alter cooker point so that it is sunk in wall and there is a connection point for the double oven.
Add sparker socket for hob Add tumble dryer switched fused spur and socket.
Add dishwasher fused spur and socket Testing and Certification.

I have added a picture of current work

Not really sure what you’re asking. Are you saying the joiner is doing the wiring or someone he has gotten in?

You may need a building warrant for the work, depending on the type of property and where stuff is going. If you do you’ll need someone registered with NICEIC or Select.

Under counter appliances require above counter isolation in Scotland. You’ll need a heat alarm and possibly a CO detector in the kitchen.
 
The joiner has brought in an electrician to do the work. Also know the chap has to be fully qualified and registered to do the work, which I have been assured by joiner is the case.I wont take the risk of when it comes to electrical work.

The work is been carried out in my own personal home.


This is work he is due to carry out -

Small 2 way fuse box for kitchen sockets, which has to be fitted for kitchen, as main consumer board is older and not up to todays standards for the work I need done.

Alter cooker point so that it is sunk in wall and there is a connection point for the double oven.

Sparker socket for hob.

Tumble dryer switched fused spur and socket.

Dishwasher fused spur and socket Testing and Certification.

Which are to be isolated above counters as I am in Scotland.

Also will this work have to be signed off under Part P due to 2 way fuse box being installed or just signed off as minor electrical work.

Thanks

All I can see is 2 boxes chopped in and a bit of 2.5 in kopex ...Which is pretty normal at first fix stage

hard to judge the installation on such a small amount of work
Thats as much has been done up up to this point of install, so far so good then..

The job sheet for the work i listed, would that have to be Part P signed off or would it be signed off as Minor electrical work?

Thanks
 
I'm in Scotland so will have to check legislation up here. Can't see it being much different.

Also from what you are saying, the two way fusebox thats due to be fitted for the electrics in the kitchen, that would also come under small electrical work?

Thanks

Part P doesn't exist in Scotland. We have our own standards and I tried to assist with that in my earlier post re a building warrant.

You'll need a full EIC. If you know the name of the electrical company you can check they are registered by searching SELECT or NICEIC website

I won't need a building warrant as I am not making alterations to the building which is what is stated from my local council. But will need an EIC, but reading between the lines from the conversation I had with my my joiner, the electrician is doing the work basicly as a "homer". Which has got me concerned, as how can he legally sign off the work?

Cheers

NO. it's a new distribution circuit and final circuits. not Minor Works.
