Temporary electrics are very difficult to design at the start of a scheme as design changes to the building may affect the electrical provision locations and therefore many sites even with the best of intentions end up having a calamity of cables, transformers and sockets to manage. This results in poor cable management, difficulty to finish areas of work and trailing leads.
One simple way of dealing with temporary electrics design is to install all the transformers into the buildings storage or cleaners cupboard areas and purchase the daisy chained electrical power drops which are installed above the ceiling lines.
In this way very little work is required in the cleaner’s cupboards and the temporary power is generally removed 2 months before the end of any project which gives enough time to complete these areas and the power drops mean that the workforce now have within 3-5 metres of them anywhere in the building 110v of power which they can connect to without connecting back to transformer boxes halfway down the corridor or from different rooms which will cause trailing leads.
