Index Books Warehouse Extension

Five Star Electrical Services were contracted by Theme Valley Developments Ltd to carry out a large extension to the Index books warehouse facility on the Telford Way Industrial estate. The installation comprised of a mixture of low bay and high bay lighting with emergency lighting incorporated. General power, supplies for 3 phase roller doors, as well as a small office incorporated within. The works were carried out within the time constraints given to us, and all works were carried out to a high standard using high quality materials and workmanship.

Five Star electrical services were contracted by Jacksons Building Contractors Ltd to carry out a development of fifteen, one and two bed apartments in Corby Northants. The apartments also incorporated the installation of communal entrance facilities with energy saving lighting switched with time release switches, which also incorporated emergency lighting. A full intercom system was installed to all flats with a gated control as well as exterior lighting.

We were also asked to install the heating system to the apartments which incorporated an electric under floor heating system.

Priors Hall Golf Course

Five Star Electrical Services were contracted by Corby Borough Council to carry out a full rewire of Priors Hall Club House facility, this installation was carried out over a period of four weeks and consisted of a total mains upgrade, installing new switch gear at the source incorporating off peak supplies for storage heating throughout all areas. Whilst the works were being carried out the bar restaurant and function rooms were refurbished, this enabled us to install new lighting throughout these areas and work with contractors, who installed a new ceiling in the respective areas. Whilst the project was ongoing we were at all times in communication with the manager of the club to ensure that the health and safety of all club house employees and customers was adhered to.


Five Star Electrical services were approached by our wholesalers to assist in the refurbishment of the Corby branch. These works were carried out over two stages. Stage one was an overhaul of the trade counter and general office areas, for this we installed new lighting, which incorporated emergency lighting, as well as helping update their IT infrastructure. Stage two of the works consisted of a new mezzanine floor to increase stock capacity for this we had to alter and install new fluorescent lighting within the warehouse area, we recommended that they install motion detectors on the first floor to help reduce energy consumption as this area does not have constant through traffic. The works were carried out on time and to a high standard.

Ratcatchers Barn Broughton

Five Star electrical services were contracted to carry out a high spec installation to this Grade 2 listed barn conversion. Throughout the project we had to liaise with other contractors and worked closely with the customers to ensure that their dream home was to a standard that we have come to expect. As well as the usual power and lighting which is normally found in a domestic premise, we had to work closely with Bang & Olufsen of Northampton which has been installed throughout the property and fitted by us to a high standard. The customer requirements was for a lot of down lighting and exterior lighting to the property, we tried to where possible use low energy lamps and fittings. We also used wireless lighting technology within various rooms of the property which has also assisted with energy saving. Situated within the garden room we were presented with the challenge to wire up electric roof windows, this was carried out using stainless steel conduit which was within the keeping of the room. CCTV was installed to the front of the development which can be seen from any television set throughout, ensuring the security of the residents. A new item which Five Star Electrical had to contend with was the setting up and calibration of a rain water harvest tank which is sited in the front garden. Overall this was an exciting and very demanding project for us to carry out and any problems which arose were quickly and efficiently remedied.

St Ninians Church Corby

Five star electrical services were approach by the people of St Ninians Church of Scotland in Corby to update their old lighting within the main church hall, after working with a lighting manufacture we were given the task to install 12 decorative high bay fittings within and various new recessed fittings. We were given a week to carry out the works due to the Churches timetabling of events, which we duly obliged to and the works were completed in under a week. The people of the church have since kept up their relationship with the company and we now carry out maintence works within the church.
