Hello I'm Dave, im new here so please be gentle with me. I am looking to do my first job for my cps scheme, rewire flat with plasterboard walls and ceilings. I would like advise on the best way to chase cable routes to minimize repair work, but also allows for cables to be sufficiently fixed throughout the entire length, any pics examples would be fab from you pros thanks a million
 
TL;DR
Chasing flat plasterboard for rewire

With the 18th including that cables above ceiling should be fixed with fp fixings etc, plus I dont want the risk of the cables floating about in case they were to be inadvertently pulled upon when changing a lamp for example

cables dangling down inside studded walls complies with most new build practices. advantage is if sombody drills into wall, cable/s will move away. no bangs.
From an engineering perspective i agree, many thanks. If I may add the customer has a 60amp plastic wylex isolator at the incomer, the tails are 16mm to my knowledge. The cu is over 3 meters away. The customer is trying to achieve a very minimal look ie kitchen sockets in the kitchen units, operated by gang modules. The customer really has a budget for reconfiguring not rewiring, but due to the fact the wiring is red and black and he wants every socket and switch moves I believe a rewire is better to eliminate jointing of the cables

Would you agree?
