Electrical Work in Listed Buildings

General Electrical Work in Listed Buildings

Listed building must be maintained and refurbished according to the local listed building authority regulations. Any work carried out on a listed building should be completed using the same materials as originally used and finished according to the original design so that original features are preserved.

Before you undertake any alterations or improvements on your listed building, you should contact your local authority to find out what the local rules and regulations are for listed building alterations.

Adding modern features like electrical wiring and central heating need to be installed in a way that is considerate to the original features of the building and will not cause damage to the historical building materials.


Re-Wiring in a Listed Building

David Rudge Associates work with a large number of period homes, historical properties and listed buildings throughout Staffordshire and the surrounding areas to provide help and advice when any refurbishments, restorations, repairs and installations need to be completed.

We can provide solutions to home refurbishments in period buildings including electrical re-wiring and heating installations.

Re-Wiring: Any electrical work carried out within a listed building should be channelled in a way that does not damage plaster ceilings, daub walls or wattle within the buildings. All electrical installations should be hidden behind discreet surface mounting and any disturbance in lime plaster work needs to be replaced with a matching material.

Central Heating: New flues for replacement boilers or radiators will require listed building consent. It may be permitted to install underfloor heating within a listed building providing it is beneath modern flooring. You will require permission to install heating below historic flooring.
