But....getting them to put their signature for their part of the electrical installation isn't so staightforward....afterall they're not 'electrically skilled'?

Much better practice to make sure the first fix cannot be compromised by subsequent trades, even if it does take a little longer to do?

With laminate and metal studs partitions there is not actually anything in place when the electrician first fixes for the cables to be placed, it has nothing to do with taking more time.

There is nothing in place to position cables or boxes.

The only time there was an exception was when I worked alongside the Renelec guys on a hospital where the metal partition erection stopped part way through because plastic conduit was being used as part of the wiring system. So the partition erectors installed the metal frame and boarded one side then I installed noggins and pads to support wall mounted equipment whilst a guy from Renelec installed the conduit.

On every other job with both laminate and metal stud twin and earth was hung in place for the boarders to pull through the boards with voids left in the partition so that in the electrical second fix cutouts coulds be made and drylining boxes installed, with marks on the ceiling or floor to indicate the height the cable was required to be brought out at.

Its all system building, which works fine so long as everyone on the team is neat and cares about the standard of their work..

The number of guys who have worked on volume housing sites such as those in the 1980's are thinning out and the young blood lack the speed and skill that was built up by the older tradesmen by repeating the same tasks over and over again,

I was working with electricians who only ever did 1st fixes, normally wiring two 2/3 bed houses a day or one 4/5 bed then a guy who only did 2nd fixes came along and did the 2nd fix. The best firms also had guys who did a 3rd fix where they installed the CU testing, inspecting and commissioning as they went along. The 1st and 2nd fixing guys never did any testing on these firms.

In amongst all this obsession with level 3 qualifications just remember the original City and Guilds levels "Craft" now level 2, "Advanced Craft" now level 3 and "Technician" now level 4.

A "Craftsman" level 2 should be more than capable of undertaking everyday installation work on domestic properties and is not just a "electricians mate" particullary with over thirty years experience, however that person should not be working out of scope and undertaking inspecting and testing without the additional training and qualification to do so and a "qualified supervisor" should be ensuring that they are not doing so or providing them with inaccurate test results for certificates that they as a QS are signing off.
