Electrical Refurbishments for Historic Buildings

With a family culture that stretches back over three centuries we have been working on the Electrical Refurbishment of historic buildings across the UK for nearly as long our business has existed.

In listed buildings and older historic buildings in the UK, it is incredibly important that the lighting, power supply and heating systems used are safe, suitable for the modern electrical demands of today and do not pose a fire risk. Which is why if your building is still using old electrical systems, it may be time for Electric Refurbishment to be undertaken.

Why is the age of the electrical wiring important?

Safety and regulations are the two main reasons. You may know that your properties electrical wiring is dated but how old is it and when does that become too dangerous to leave as it is? The first mass produced electrical wiring dates back to around the time of World War I! And while it is rare to find electrical wiring that is that old and still in use, listed buildings and historic buildings often still have outdated electrical wiring from the around the 1960s and 70s. If this is the case then they should have their electrical systems upgraded and refurbished to ensure that the building is safe and fit for purpose.

Electrical Refurbishment Services

At HF Group, our electrical division provide historic building electrical service upgrades including:

  • Electrical Cabling Replacement
  • LED Lighting Upgrade
  • Full Rewiring
  • Part Rewiring
  • Distribution Board Upgrades
  • Data Network Improvements

With historic buildings, each electrical refurbishment comes with its own challenges and when dealing with the unique set up of historic buildings, there are some business decisions where peace of mind is essential. That’s the principle on which the Fulton family founded the company and its electrical services all those years ago, and it’s just as important today.

Our unique combination of family continuity, in-depth business and technical knowledge and an investment in recruiting and developing the very best skillsets, means that our customers still benefit from the highest possible standards of electrical service and delivery – the hallmark of HF since its inception.
