New build testing

New build electrical testing is vital in ensuring that a project finishes on time, within budget, and adheres to strict safety parameters. If you are a building contractor with an estate of new homes needing EICR certification, or if you are a landlord needing new build testing to comply with legal requirements, then look no further than AMP. We’ve been carrying out new build electrical inspections in and around the North West for decades and our electricians are fully EICR insured and accredited. Speak to an expert member of our team for more information about our comprehensive new build testing services.

Large-scale new build testing

We’ve been responsible for the allocation of thousands of new build EICRs over the years, working on large-scale projects with building contractors, councils, and public sector resources. Our expert electricians will take the time to fully assess your building’s electrical supply, test circuits, polarity, and earth resistance, and advise if any remediations are necessary.   

If your new build testing needs to be carried out by an electrical company with a history of professionalism, reliability, and putting health and safety above all else, then get in touch with AMP Manchester today.

EICR for rental properties

As a landlord, you may be asked by the local authorities to provide an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) for each of your rental properties at any time – including new builds. You have seven days to produce this or face severe financial punishments. AMP complete most standard EICRs in under 4 hours, so the disruption to your routine is minimal and you don’t need to renew it for another 5 years. 

Book your new build testing EICR with AMP today to ensure that your requirements as a landlord are up-to-date and that your property is sufficiently protected for the next 5 years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need an EICR on a new build?

Yes, you do. It is a legal requirement to have an EICR certificate to prove that your electricity supply has been tested by a professional electrician and is up to legal standards. If you are purchasing a Buy to Let new build property then you need to have the EICR inspection in place before you can allow them to move in. If you need this test performed, get in touch today.

What tests are required on electrical installation?

A number of your electrical installation systems will be carried out on your newbuild testing, including:

– Protective Conductor Continuity

– Circuit Breaker Functionality

– Ring Circuit Testing

– Polarity Testing

– Insulation Resistance Test

– Earth Continuity Test

– Earth Electrode Resistance Test

I already have an EIC - will this do instead of an EICR?

No. The Electric Installation Certificate is different to the Electrical Installation Condition Report, the latter being a much more extensive investigation than the former. If you don’t comply with this legal obligation then you could face a penalty of up to £30,000.
