Literally the best service I’ve received from a contractor. Gheorghe was so polite, super efficient and reliable. You could tell he knew what he was doing. He fixed a shoddy job left by a dodgy electrician and made me feel at ease immediately when I told him the problem. I’ve saved his number for the future as it’s hard to come across reliable and fair servicemen. Do not hesitate to use him - I’d give 10 stars if I could!

Our team of seasoned construction professionals has over 70 years of combined technical expertise and knowledge across a wide range of property types. From inception to completion, our team is involved every step of the way: pre-construction planning, design, obtaining planning permission, budget development and execution, scheduling, contract procurement, and close-out. Using unique methods of extracting value while simultaneously providing the highest standards of quality are the hallmarks of our construction team’s process. Marketing, sales and leasing for our portfolio is managed directly by our marketing and sales team from inception to completion. Strategically, relying on a keen awareness of industry analytics and trends is our key to maximizing market share and optimizing absorption. At the predevelopment phase, our marketing team works in concert with the architects and designer to craft the property in alignment with current demands. Imperial development, construction and marketing and sales teams remain fully-integrated throughout the entire life cycle of a project to ensure efficiency and synchrony. In simple terms, we design, construct, refurbish and operate outstanding buildings. For public and private sector clients, and for our own portfolio of properties. Creating a new building – or breathing new life into an existing one – takes vision. Clear, long-sighted vision. A vision that’s shared by the client, the designer, the construction company, the facilities management supplier… It takes into account how that building will evolve throughout its design life. How it will be maintained. How much it will cost to run. And it factors in the impact that the building will have on its environment: immediate and global; now and in the future. That’s what we mean when we talk about sustainable buildings. We know this process and these arguments inside out from the client perspective and the user point of view, as well as with our design, construction and maintenance hats on – because we’re property developers in our own right.

Really pleased with my new wooden driveway gates. Howard turned up when he said he would, fully listened to exactly what I wanted and kept me updated throughout the process. He came back afterwards too to add another bolt. He was really professional and did a great job. The gates are fantastic and I would recommend Howard.

CCTV / Satellites / Alarms - what you need to know

Aerial and network specialists’ work is all about making sure your home is set up with the right connections to receive digital signals. They can make sure your home network is set up so you can access the internet and have a home telephone line. A lot of the work they do involves fitting aerial or satellite dishes, and resolving problems with existing ones, so you can watch your favourite TV shows of an evening. Often, a reception issue isn’t caused by an aerial but by cabling which will show up when they perform a signal test. A network specialist can also install new TV points in different rooms so that the whole household doesn’t have to watch the same TV channel.

As well as making sure you have access to all the home entertainment you need, a network specialist can also help you protect your home by installing a variety of burglar and fire alarms

What an aerial installer and network specialist can help with

  • Fitting an aerial or satellite dish.
  • Solving signal problems.
  • Adding extra TV points in different rooms.
  • Installing alarms – burglar alarms and fire alarm systems.
  • Installing CCTV.
  • Installing data and telephone points.
  • Setting up internet access.
  • Repairing or installing data cabling.
  • Setting up or resolving issues with your home network.

The qualifications your aerial installer and network specialist needs

In general, an aerial installer and network specialist won’t need a particular qualification but they may need a Part P qualification if any of their work requires them to touch the wiring in your house. To fit data and telephone cabling, a network specialist would also need to have an affiliation with a service provider.

Why do I have no satellite signal?

If you have no satellite signal and you see an error message on your TV screen from your service provider, the problem’s usually down to your satellite dish, cables outside your home or the connections to a TV box (for instance a Sky box). If you have a TV box switched on and you see “no signal” or “no input” on the screen, this is normally down to the connection between the box and the TV. If the picture on the screen looks distorted, the main cause is usually bad weather conditions or a loose connection. In each case, you’ll want to head to your service provider’s website as a first port of call to troubleshoot the problem. If you can’t fix the issue, it’s worth calling out an aerial and network specialist to take a look.

Planning permission for aerial installation and network specialist jobs

Planning permission may be required for fitting satellite, TV and radio antennae. It’s your responsibility to fit an antenna in the correct position and there are different rules according to the height of your house and whether it’s in a designated area. Check out the Planning Portal for more information. There may also be specific rules in a rental or leaseholder agreement and you should check your property’s details before having anything installed.

Building regulations for aerial installation and network specialist jobs

Building regulations don’t normally apply for installing an antenna but you need to make sure that it’s fixed securely.

Insurance for aerial installation and network specialist work

There’s no legal requirement for network specialists to have insurance but it’s a good idea for them to buy public liability insurance to cover themselves against any property damage and personal injury claims.

Questions you should ask an aerial installer and network specialist

  • Do they have public liability insurance and what does this cover?
  • How long have they been trading?
  • Will any of their work require them to touch the electrics and if so, do they have a Part P qualification?
  • Will it be themselves that carry out the work? If not, what experience does the person have and are they covered by insurance?
  • Will they give a guarantee for the work and how long does that last?
  • Do they offer phone support for the alarm?
