An Intricate Job. Watch How It Happened

Efficient cost-effective solutions in renovations and heritage electrics, Scott Electrics are preserving our architectural past, one art deco building at a time.

Heritage Building Cabling – The Scott Electrics Way

Cotton cabling, cloth wiring and braided cables are a sentimental and intricate reminder of our rich Art Deco heritage-listed past.
Early lighting was minimal and often limited and insufficient for today’s needs. Electrical systems in historic buildings frequently require upgrading. Upgrading and installing new lighting requires special skills, care and planning on a holistic architectural level to avoid damaging the building’s character, appearance or integrity while minimising the risk of fire.
Scott Electrics are the local experts in electrics for heritage-listed buildings. As specialists in cotton cabling, Scotts manage all the risks of upgrading, renovating and preserving our local history using specialist electrical skills, attention to detail and outstanding customer service.

Michael Meredith

I am pleased to write in support of the first-class work and service provided by Scott Electrics in installing a new switchboard supplying our 55 unit 8 floor building and re wiring throughout to all units. The Art Deco building being heritage listed added to the degree of difficulty.

Scott Electrics carried out all works to the descriptive timeline provided, with associated cash flow drawdowns to programme and to quoted cost. The nature of work required entry to all units at various stages and it is testimony to the conduct of Scott’s team that I received numerous unsolicited/ favourable comments on the considerate manner in which they conducted themselves throughout the building over the duration of the contract.

Having had over 18 years Body Corporate/Strata Committee and Strata Management experience in buildings with up to 140 units I have a good basis for performance comment. Over this period, I have not
experienced a contract of this nature to run so smoothly to time and budget.

I wish the Scott Electrics team every success in the future and I am prepared to supply any further comment if required.
