University of Ulster (Block BC)

Initial verification of LV Electrical Installation on behalf of Dowds Group


Our works are ongoing at the new University of Ulster Campus in Belfast on behalf of Dowds Group.

This new landmark development in the heart of beautiful Belfast will cover 75’000 square meters in total, servicing over 15’000 students.

This project has driven a vast regeneration of the York St area with multiple student accomodation developments popping up, as well as other projects under way.

FCS Services are proud to be supporting the main Electrical Contractor for Block BC, providing independant Initial Verification of the LV Electrical distribution. This includes the inspection and testing of approx 4000 circuits in total and completion of the required Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC).


What do the regulations say?

“Every installation shall, during erection and on completion before being put into service, be inspected and tested to verify, so far as reasonably practicable, that the requirements of the Regulations have been met.” 641.1
“On completion of the verification, according to Regulations 641.1 to 641.6, a certificate shall be prepared.” 641.7

Why choose FCS Services?

We are a NICEIC registered company specialising in Electrical Testing and Certification. As such we are assessed by this 3rd party accreditation body ensuring standards are up to the highest level. This gives clients the reassurance they need that we will carry out the works on their behalf to their own exacting standards.

We believe that an independant 3rd party Electrical Verification by ourselves saves our clients both time and money. We work closely with our clients giving them real time and verified information about both progress, and quality within the installation. Any issues or non-conformences are highlighted in a timely fashion, and once rectifed can be re-inspected and verified without any issues. This process greatly reduces latent defects for our clients, and gives peace of mind to the main contractors that standards are being verified.
