An electrical contractor must be able to obtain the necessary Singapore permits for major electrical services and electrical installation.

Doing electrical service requires technical work and training. Electricians must pass difficult tests to be licensed electricians.

They must learn how to work efficiently and ensure that they the electrical system they are working on is not defective.

Because of technological advancements, more appliances are being produced to make daily lives easier and more comfortable for homeowners. Most of these appliances depend on electricity as power source and these also increase the load on electrical circuits. To avoid short-circuiting, power-tripping and other electrical installation problems, a request to increase electric circuit load can be made.This demands the services of a Singapore electrician who understands the capacity of the existing electrical service and can correctly and safely increase its output.


Estimates Cost Of Materials And Labour 

Projects require cost estimates to be given to the client. Major elements are materials and labour. Labour for the project includes creating an estimate and discussing the extent of the work to the client. Labour also includes all the work involved in the project. Having the experience in the past, an electrical contractor already has records with their past projects including the amount of record required and the costs of materials to use. Based on the records of labour and materials for similar projects, they should be able to determine good estimates for any type of electrical works.


Reviews Blueprints 


Blueprints are created as a guide for building homes and establishments. They indicate where the wires go and what they are connected to, including all electrical power outlets and the circuit breaker panel that controls them. Blueprints also show what is installed to support telecommunication and security systems. Today, blueprints may include fiber optic cables and coaxial cables to support computers and other telecommunication systems.


Electricians in charge of the electrical project must be able to read and understand all these blueprints, including the acronyms and other abbreviations and symbols used in the blueprints. This skill comes from years of training and actual experience here in Singapore:

Then they must work with the customer to see that all the components work as expected and do necessary testing to see that all are correct and safe.


For electrical troubleshooting in an existing building, the electrician in charge must trace the problem down based on the blueprints for the building, and his/her own knowledge of electrical systems and testing hardware. As the use of electrical appliances increase, there is an increasing strain on electrical circuits. The electricians in-charge of the projects must have the knowledge and experience to troubleshoot and implement the necessary changes.
