IQP Inspections For Building Warrant Of Fitness (BWoF)

A building warrant of fitness (BWoF) is a building owner’s annual statement confirming the specified systems in the compliance schedule for their building have been maintained & checked for the previous 12 months, in accordance with the compliance schedule.

Building owners are required to engage IQPs who will undertake the inspection, maintenance & reporting procedures listed on the compliance schedule & issue the Form 12A on each anniversary of that schedule.

South Island Electrical services have qualified IQP staff (Independently Qualified Person) providing six monthly & annual testing of commercial emergency lighting & EXIT lighting to comply with legislative requirements.  

In addition to inspections, South Island Electrical can provide advice & reports on faults, failures & upgrades, working with you to remedy necessary action points quickly. 

Old Switchboard Upgrade Re-Wiring

Wiring Checks, Re-Wiring & Switchboard Upgrades

Electrical installations can become overloaded & age, especially in old properties where the original wiring design would not have anticipated the large number of electrical appliances in use today. 

If your wiring is outdated, insurance policies may not cover any damage that occurs due to an electrical fire.  

If you install a large appliance such as a central heating system or number of additional smaller appliances we would recommend having an electrician check the capability of your switchboard & wiring. Overloading them can be very dangerous risking electrical shock & fire.

As well as wiring for new buildings, you can get your existing property rewired to meet insurance policy standards (safe guarding your insurance coverage for damage caused by an electrical fire).

Indicators that the electrics in your home maybe becoming dangerous include plugs or sockets that are hot to touch or have scorch marks on them, fuses that blow & circuit breakers that trip for no reason or flickering lights.

If you notice any of the above warning signs your wiring may need upgrading.  South Island Services fault find, carry out property wiring checks, switchboard upgrades & convert old rewireable fuses to safer RCDs reducing electrical shock & fire risk. We can provide a quote for any work required to bring your wiring up to current standards & ensure your safety.
