Landlord Rewire & Inspection: 204 Promenade, Blackpool

This project initially started with a full electrical inspection to the landlord areas. It quickly became evident that the wiring was the original install from the early 1950โ€™s. Fylde Coast rewires were contracted to provide the full rewiring to all of the landlord areas including two basement carparks, nine floors, one electrical mains room and a plant room located up on the tenth floor. We were able to carry out this project with zero loss of the existing electricity supplies to the residents which was a major factor as there are a number of elderly residents.
