H&MV will manage and carry out all the complex civil engineering works and provide expert advice on the regulatory environment to help improve delivery and minimise delays.

We can also manage any necessary legal negotiations and be the primary point of contact with the DNO for design through to the final handover.

Construction

From production of detailed construction drawings to scheduling and attending all site meetings to discuss project progress – H&MV will take care of everything in-house from the initial point of connection application, design, construction and commissioning, through to the final adoption and energisation.

As a vital element of our accreditation, we deliver connections to the specification and standard that will be operated and owned by a Distribution Network Operator (DNO) or Independent Distribution Network Operator (IDNO).

Testing, commissioning & auditing

Expertise is hard earned and when it comes to electrical systems, it is important to have people who are competent, experienced and highly qualified. H&MV Engineering service engineers are often sought to oversee or audit the ongoing effectiveness of electrical installations.

H&MV Engineering is often required to validate the works that other companies have undertaken to ensure that it meets with the requirements of a design or specification.

Testing and commissioning services are invariably required at the end of a project.

H&MV Engineering in-house commissioning engineers and SAPs (who provided design and specification) return to site and ensure that performance has been achieved to enable a DNO/IDNO to safely energise the installation.

key inspection points

The following is a non-exhaustive list of key inspection points for auditing:

  • Pre-commissioning documentation
  • Test method statements
  • Site specific risk assessments
  • Technical documentation
  • Primary equipment test sheets including factory test data
  • Ancillary systems test documentation
  • Batteries, chargers, DC supervision
  • Distribution boards
