decent work load, decent lads to work with.
Pros: lots of work, lots of overtime, decent lads to work with, helpful sub contractors.
Cons: long drive down to norwich, no help with money for hotels, food, fuel etc.
the first job in hull was very similar to the other projects I did during my apprenticeship (NHS buildings). very good mix of works, including, external lighting, internal lighting, dado trunking, wiring different circuits (socket circuits, lighting circuits, smoke alarm circuits, door access circuits , nurse call circuits, BMS circuits, etc..) when – more... wiring, i had an apprentice with me to help, we wired 90% of the site, and were no faults during power up or testing.
after the job in hull, i was asked to work on another NHS building down in norwich. during this time, i 1st fixed, 2nd fixed and ran the job for 2 weeks whilst the site supervisor was on holiday. again, i wired 90% of the installation and no faults occurred on power up and during testing. this job provided alot of overtime (16hr days). weekends were also offered, and the job got completed on time, with 0 defects/snags.
overall, these jobs were very good, both ran by the same construction company (simons construction), and both with the same electrical contractor and site supervisor. the hardest part of the hull job was, wiring the outside lights, in the rain, with no help. the most enjoyable part of the hull job was, powering the site up and having no faults on the part i wired.
the hardest part of the norwich job, was wiring each sub main DB with a 35mm 3 core LSF/SWA/XPLE cable, through the flat roof rafters. we did 8 cable runs in 2 days. the most enjoyable part of the norwich job was the power up, and having no faults on any of the circuts that i wired. – less
