Our Project Services

Through specialist project consultation, we aim to provide all the expertise you may require to effectively run a project from its inception through to completion and beyond. This generally works through one of three ways:

  1. Engaging Electrical Options in a traditional consultancy capacity to provide specific assistance in the delivery of a project or programme;
  2. Secondment of Electrical Options specialist resource to perform specific project functions (i.e. installation & commission);
  3. Engaging Electrical Options to help manage a project on your behalf in partnership with you, assisting in the achievement of your business objectives.

Our aim is to assist you in realising the expected benefits and maximise value from your business. Our professionals will provide practical advice and guidance based upon experience, rather than vendor incentives.


In the following section we describe some of the services with which we believe we can assist you throughout the project lifecycle, shown in order of when we would expect to employ them. These areas are covered in greater detail:

  • Business Consultancy and Advice
  • Project Inception
  • Project Initiation
  • Project Implementation
  • Project Completion

Project Inception

Once we have understood your requirement, it is then necessary to clearly define the business drivers and strategic objectives. We can assist in providing an understanding of how the project can be delivered, and identify the foreseeable risks associated with it.

It is about making sure that the project’s objectives are clearly understood and that its scope has been tied down. Key roles and responsibilities also need to be defined along with the management and reporting channels. Additionally, both containment and contingency strategies need to be established for the principal risks identified.

Project Implementation

This stage of the project is concerned with delivery. The objectives and scope have been finalised, a solution identified and a framework installed to facilitate delivery. This is about managing the design, development, progress, testing and implementation of the solution.

At this stage, we will provide a Project Management Consultancy Service or secondment of experienced project managers and specialist resources. Our approach to Programme and Project Management can be summarised as:

Understanding the Client’s needs – We realise the importance of understanding the Client’s organisation, business and aims in order to effectively ‘add value’ to projects.

Early Appraisal of the Project – Early implementation of management and control procedures promotes the team’s awareness of the need to deliver within budget and to programme throughout the duration of the project.

Implementation of robust processes and procedures – Employing Project Managers who are process oriented and agreeing rigorous project management methodology with the client.

Commitment to Innovation and Continuous Improvement – Implementing tools and techniques transferred from other sectors including Process Mapping, Stakeholder Management techniques and Performance Measurement tools.

Project Completion

This phase of the project is about effectively winding down the project after a successful implementation phase and managing the transition from a project environment back into the business operations. We recognise the importance of this phase in providing the impetus to realise the long term business benefits by delivering a successful handover.
