Skillsets & Accreditations
All of the company’s delivery teams are 17th Edition and G39 trained electricians, whilst the company has accreditation from NICEIC, we are also Constructionline and Achilles UVDB approved in the electrical and construction sector. As an ICP we are one of only 208 companies UK wide, registered with Lloyds through the NERS accreditation scheme, who are able to work on the DNO and Private electrical networks. In the Street Lighting Sector we are fully HEA/HERS accredited to work on the UK Highways and Street Lighting Network.
To ensure a sustainable future for the group, when the industry is facing a much publicized dearth of skilled electricians, Power One employ five apprentices, all based locally. These apprentices have also been enrolled on a 3 year formal apprentice course at West College Scotland. The innovative idea by MD Mark Ward, has led to a bespoke college course and apprenticeship for Electricians, with a special bolt on element which focusses on Street Lighting.
The accreditation as an Independent Connection Provider (ICP), has also given the group the ability to provide a complete “one stop shop” to its’ clients. This offers efficiencies where previously several different contractors were required, often leading to programming and delivery issues further disrupting the public.
Power 1 Group deliver works in the communications sector, with their specialist workforce updating much of the power supply to an aging infrastructure for many of the large Telecom providers, such as Vodaphone and O2. The company also has its’ origins in carrying out electrical works in the off shore sector and providing temporary electric supplies to large Contraction sites, with particular logistic challenges.
