Hi, my name is Bryan and
I am a registered electrician working for myself in Bristol. I am originally from New
Zealand and gained my qualifications there after completed a four year electrical
apprenticeship but have now been living in the UK for almost five years. I completed
my City and Guilds 16th edition electrical examinations as soon as I arrived
in the UK and have since become JIB approved, completed my C&G 2391 inspection
and testing examinations and am now Part P registered also
After completing my apprenticeship
in NZ, I continued working for Williams Hickman Electrical as a tradesman for
approximately two years. While I was at W.H.E, I was in charge of many contracts
including domestic, commercial and industrial constructions and I also worked
with their servicing department on regular occasions doing rewires, refurbishments,
and general call out jobs.
On the whole I consider
my time well spent with W.H.E as it gave me a wide range of electrical skills,
ranging from plug socket and light installation all the way through to data
cabling (cat 5e), industrial switchgear, roller doors and basic PLC programming.
After leaving W.H.E, I
set up my own business in a small town north of Christchurch called Cheviot.
Whilst there I learnt all about how to run your own business and varied my experience
even more. Being a small town some distance from the city, an electrician can
be called on to fix and tune appliances, install aerials, wire sub mains, energize
pumps, and any number of other electrical jobs which are normally suited to
more specialized tradesmen and one is constantly needing to learn more, to keep
up with the demands placed on any individual who may be able to extend their
services to suit
When I decided that I wanted
to travel abroad, it was necessary to go and work in the city to increase my
workload and I did this for almost a year and a half before leaving for Sydney,
Australia. Whilst there I subcontracted
for Hobbs Unlimited and worked mainly on commercial developments such as pubs,
nightclubs and residential housing/ apartments. We also did the servicing and
maintenance for several car wash bays which I also found very interesting.
From there I moved to the
UK and in my first year spent in Brighton, I worked as a temp' for Hays Montrose.
I did a major rest home refurbishment for L & F Electrical Services and
Electrical inspection and preventative maintenance for Baileys Maintenance Services
who were contracted to Southern Water
Since starting my business
here, I have done such things as house rewires, kitchen refits, metal conduit,
new switchboards, periodic and full installation inspections and upgrading of
electrics to BS7671 standard. As it is a legal requirement to be Part P certified
to work on domestic installations, I have also become a member of (The) National
Association of Professional Inspectors and Testers (NAPIT) and send regular
notifications to them for domestic jobs requiring notification.
Recently (April 2006 - April 2007) I have been back to Australia and New Zealand, to show my partner (Sandy) how we live over there. However, after a year of sunshine and travel
it was necessary to buckle down and get some work done and I have been working
successfully in Brighton since April of last year (2007).
However, as my girlfriend
has obtained work in Bristol, the time has come for me to move once again. This
is because we both agreed that her job is more specialised and her work location
is more limited. After six months of living and working in Bristol without me,
we have now decided that it is worthwhile me relocating, to be with her once
again. As a result, I moved to Bristol on the 31st of March (2008) and am now
operating from a premises centrally located in Westbury Park (BS6).
So there you have it, BZ
Electrical is now based in Bristol. To all you Bristolians, if you would like
to have some electrical work completed by a responsible, hard working electrician
- give me a call.
