What are ‘Temporary’ Electrics?
Multitech Site Services is the UK’s leading provider of ‘Temporary Electrics’. Before the likes of Canary Wharf or the Shard decorated the London skyline, before schools and hospitals are opened, they were just construction sites. And before construction could start, electricity supplies needed to be in place to enable machinery such as cranes and power tools to operate.
But this is no ‘ordinary’ electricity supply…this one gets taken away again (thus it’s “temporary”)!
Cables, generators, sub-stations, lighting, alarm systems and plumbing must all be installed for construction to start but is all later removed when permanent mains services are connected. Fantastic architectural structures throughout the UK were made possible by having a reliable ‘temporary’ electrics provider such as Multitech.
You could be one of the skilled electricians that make this possible; our electricians have been doing so since 1998!
