Before We Get Started, It’s Crucial To Consider:

- Preferred Electricity Meter location
- Power Points / Outlets – number and approx. location required for each room, along with outlets for ceiling ducted heating and cooling
- Lighting – fittings, locations and external lighting requirements
- Electrical appliance connections including that of oven, hotplates, hot water, air conditioning, heating, garage doors and exhaust fans
- Smoke Detectors – Number and Locations
- Home Automation
Zehn Electrical can complete all electrical stages of a project from running wires, to fitting off, liaising with trades on getting the job done and managing any changes.
This involves detailed pre-delivery planning that is crucial to the success and timely delivery that allows a clear pathway through to project completion.
Zehn Electrical understands electrical work needs to be considered at the earliest stages of a project and we will assist you in the electrical design process for your construction or renovation work. There are all sorts of control panels and power points that you may need in your home including heating and cooling, lighting, and home security. It’s a good idea to decide early what kind of technology you intend to use in your home so you know exactly what control panels and outlets you will have. Zehn Electrical can assist you with deciding on the least obtrusive positioning of all electrical points and panels and will do a thorough walk through with you on-site.
“Justin provided high quality service and we could not be happier with the results. He took time to explain how things would work and the benefits of LED lighting. He even cleaned up after the job was done.” – Shannon Ryder, Nambour
At the rough-in stage your Zehn electricians will run all required cables within the house frame, basic lines are laid out without making the final connections.
Zehn Electrical works effectively with other trades to find solutions to ensure everything is laid out logically.
Once the plaster work is complete, all power outlets, light switch locations and down-lights are cut out, allowing for the tilers and painters to complete their work.
Once work such as painting, tiling and carpentry is complete the electrical “fit-off” stage can commence.
All power outlets, light switches and light fittings, appliances and smoke detectors are installed. The switchboard, safety switches and circuit breakers are also fit out.
Possibly the most crucial stage in an electricians’ work, the testing stage tests and energises the installation to verify all installations are safe and compliant with the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3000.
All construction wiring, including switchboards and wiring within transportable structures, must be inspected, tested and certified by a licensed electrician before connection to the mains supply and whenever alteration, additions or repairs are carried out.
