Hillview Swanage

‘Hillview’ is built into the hillside and climbs three stories affording wonderful views as well as access to the garden and terrace from both of the lower two floors.

Project Outline

Swanage is a unique seaside town nestled in the Purbeck hills near Poole in Dorset. It boasts a vibrant community and spectacular scenery. ‘Hillview’ is found in a charming lane close to the town centre and picture perfect beach. 

The team at Henshall Electrical collaborated with Homer Property Developments to design and install an electrical system which would provide a comprehensive and modern suite of power, lighting and communication circuits to complement and enhance the clean aesthetics of the property. The client settled on a contemporary finish for accessories which we delivered using the Scolmore Click Deco range in satin stainless steel.

For optimum convenience, all kitchen appliances were switched from a single plate which featured engraved switches for easy identification.

Our engineers had a number of operational and design challenges to overcome including numerous steel joists and girders used in the construction making cable and ventilation ducts difficult to route. There were complex requirements for lighting control for the entrance hall, stairwell and landings which all occupied a single space and needed control points at each level whilst maintaining an intuitive and straightforward switch set-up.

When the installation work was completed a full Initial verification was completed, with all circuits exhaustively tested to confirm regulatory compliance, safety and functionality. All of our work is rigorously inspected and tested by our electricians to ensure the highest standards of workmanship are maintained.
