Directly employed Sotham engineers…

Works are typically carried out by directly employed Sotham engineers, supported by tried and trusted specialised sub-contractors only when needed. In this way, we are able to ensure a consistency and quality of work for which Sotham Engineering is known.

Sotham Engineering is a member of the Electrical Contractors Association who routinely audit the company systems and management procedures to ensure compliance with high standards.

Sotham is also accredited by the NICEIC (National inspection council for electrical industry contractors). To achieve and maintain this accreditation, which Sotham has done for over 25 years, the company and its work undergoes an annual inspection of technical and quality standards to ensure that work and management of that work is being conducted in strict accordance with the relevant British Standards.

A flexible and innovative approach…

We are often required to take a more flexible and innovative approach to such projects, for example refurbishing a system while a building is in use and minimising disruption to day-to-day activities, installing new equipment in historic buildings in such a way as to avoid disturbance to the fabric of the building, or creating tailored lighting systems that are colour tuned in a specific way that complements and enhances a building’s interior and the original design intent.
