What is a category A fit out?

Category A electrical installation involves installing particular electrical elements like the lighting and fire alarm systems. These are designed to meet the specific requirements of the project, and to be designed to suit the purpose, layout and shape of the space available. Practical considerations here will influence the practical use of the space, and the flexibility and usability of the space you are creating. Effective category A design also prepares the space for the next stage of the fit out. If you are a property landlord, category A fit out is all you need to be able to sell a clean, suitable space complete with all necessary systems installed.

What is a category B fit out?

Category B electrical installation is the final stage of the installation process and involves installing the finishing electrical touches, like the IT equipment and other electrical amenities. At this stage of the process, the design of the entire project should be coming together nicely, with finishing touches like decor and furniture being undertaken as well as the final electrical installations. At this stage, any electrical features you wish to create will be installed including reception spaces with custom lighting, or electronic security systems.
