Providing specialist electrical services to landlords to keep properties safe
PH Jones, through contracts with two electrical Distribution Network Operators (DNOs), has developed a range of specialised electrical services. Working closely with the DNOs and landlords we can identify priority buildings based on established risk factors relating to the condition and size of the building infrastructure. In many cases, OFGEM funding is available resulting in no cost to the landlord.
Lateral mains replacement
Within many communal buildings, including tower blocks and sheltered housing, the electrical wiring in particular, the lateral mains may date back to when the building was originally built and in need of replacing.
The communal electrical wiring was normally installed by the original building contractor and has therefore become the responsibility of the landlord to keep it safe and maintained.
Asset management surveys
PH Jones is able to complete an asset assessment survey to identify priority properties for upgrading.
Once potential properties have been identified from an initial desktop evaluation, we make arrangements with the owner / managing agent to facilitate an assessment of the building. The results then allow us to produce a report which is returned to the DNO along with a quotation for the work to be completed.
Working with our civils contractors and cable jointing services teams, PH Jones is able to assess and upgrade properties supplied by mural wiring systems.
Cable head changes and jointing services
Cable head changes may need the service cable to be temporarily cut whilst the cable head is upgraded safely. PH Jones will gain approval from the relevant authorities for all excavations and traffic management that is required for the works.
Service connections to overhead line upgrade programmes
PH Jones have engineers who can work with overhead line specialists to provide the service connection to remote properties such as farms, industrial units, detached houses and cottages whose supply is delivered by overhead cabling.
Reactive response service
PH Jones operate the 24/7 emergency call out services for one of the DNO regions. Engineers attend site within a three hour response time and have returned customers back on supply within a twelve hour period. We have also provided resources during the extreme weather conditions and in instances when the network has been vandalised.
