I'm sure you've all probably had this before. You go to site, complete 1st fix. By the time you return to do 2nd fix, you find cables cut. I'm pretty sure it was by accident but if you are working for a fit-out / electrical contractor, what is the correct course of action. Normally we just report it to the site supervisor and end up re-running the cable at our cost. But should we be more forceful and insist they pay? Is there a particular form to fill out? Would be great to get your thoughts.
On a recent project our Engineers were pulled up for a few issues regarding their cabling: 1. With cable laid in underfloor voids, they didn't use the data matts that were provided 2. They didn't clip their cables to the slab 3. They ran cabling over ductwork, not underneath it. To be fair, it was work done by our 1st fix sub-contractors, rather than our Engineers. However it is actually up to our Team to show the subbies the standards and check that everyone installs to this standard. We are going to put a 1st fix guide together with pictures to show our Teams in future what we expect. Silly question (as i'm not an Engineer), but where do I go to find out about best practice and regulations around running cables for security systems? Thanks.
