Temporary Installations / Event Electrics

Temporary electrical systems are deployed daily within exhibition halls, conference halls, theatres, hotels and open areas. These are often constructed then deconstructed to cater for a range of private parties, shows, festivals, outside broadcasts, exhibitions and corporate events - lasting from a few days up to a few weeks.

The risks associated with temporary electrical systems can often be greater due to varying demands, unpredictable weather and unusual loads. This is why the ECA play a pivotal role in proactively working with the wider industry, relevant stakeholders and standard setting organisations with a focus on improving professionalism, creating commercial opportunities for its members and successfully representing the vast array of contractors who manage and install temporary electrical systems.

ECA registered membership is based on industry recognised criteria, which provides clients with the confidence and assurance that ECA member companies deliver the highest calibre of work possible. Firms installing temporary electrical systems are independently audited against industry standards as part of their criteria for ECA membership - namely British Standard (BS) 7671 Requirements for electrical installations and BS 7909 Code of practice for temporary electrical systems for entertainment and related purposes.
