    I am looking for an Electrician to advise on my first fit of lights and ring main for a garden office I am building.

    Once I have all the wires run in and the ceilings and walls on I require them to connect up to Consumer Unit and then connect an armoured cable to the house.

    Job is in SO45 1BG -
    Calshot, Southampton

    This is notifiable works and I would suspect any electrician would want to do the full works for the Electrical Installation Certificate.

    The electrician will need to inspect all of the work you have done before it is covered. They will also need to see your design calculations for the cable sizes you have used.
    Also you will have to sign the design and construction sections of the certificate as you are responsible for these parts of the work.

    I think you will find it hard to find an electrician to do half the job for the reasons stated above. Be wary of someone who will do that, not that it can't be done but most electricians are very careful about that type of scenario.

    Depending on size a first fix on a garden office could take a day, is it worth trying to save a days labour? If he does the whole job then any issues are his responsibility
