no comments

Northern Ireland-based electrical contracting firm Premier Electrics has taken part in hit BBC TV show DIY SOS.


The build, on a home in Bangor, was the first time the DIY SOS team had carried out a project in Northern Ireland.


The renovation was for a family who suffer from a range of health problems, making living conditions in their previous home difficult.


Robert McMath from Premier Electrics project managed the electrical team, overseeing the electrical installation, testing and commissioning of the building.


He said: “It was a busy nine days on-site with over 100 people working on the project at various stages, but it was very satisfying to see so many volunteers working together for this great cause.


“Premier Electrics is a leading electrical contractor that delivers large scale projects throughout Ireland, UK and Europe, so this was a great opportunity for us to give back to our local community and support a family in need. Having seen the difficulties the family face on a daily basis, we were very pleased to have been able to help”.


The project saw the family home extended and revamped with an emphasis on disabled access. A lift was installed between floors, and ramps and wider doorways were put in place allowing greater access throughout the house. Electric hoists were also installed in several of the bedrooms.


The Bangor DIY SOS build is due to air on BBC1 later this year.
