Design build and maintenance to bespoke specifications
Providing comprehensive build and design services is something our team really enjoys, having the opportunity to bring everything together the way it should be and resolving the individual challenges with innovative solutions. Whether supporting designers and architects or taking care of it all ourselves, we are able to offer the complete answers for our customers. As an example Lyons Electrical were proudly responsible for the Design and Build of the Lakeside Energy from Waste (EFW) plant at Colnbrook, Slough.
Commercial and marine installations
From factory and office installations or even town Christmas lights through to an extensive range of marine related work including the Millennium Dome Pier, the Dover SeaCat terminal, or Shepperton Weir floodgates we install every kind of electrical system for commercial and public clients.
The design and installation of data cabling is a common request from our clients to complete the administration side to their business. Generally Local Area Network (LAN) cabling is installed beneath suspended floors or within the framework of the building, supplying computers and telephones via panel mounted patch panels.
Shopping centres, Business premises, Car-parks, and Private houses Lyons Electrical has designed and fitted cameras to many varied sites, all with their own characteristics and idiosyncrasies. Connected to 24 hour recorders, infrared sensors and linked to powerful floodlighting if required, we are able to provide the necessary security measures for ease of mind today. An example is our involvement with the CCTV installation for 23 No. railway stations for First Capital Connect and extensive CCTV installations around the West End of London.
Fire alarm installations are nearly always included within our contractual obligations regardless of the size of contract or complexity of the installation required; typically our company has installed fire alarm systems for schools, doctors’ surgeries, offices and commercial premises.
Domestic electrical installations
Whether an extra power or lighting point is required our client’s requirements for domestic installations in this day and age are rapidly changing. Our company is constantly requested to design IT networks and telephone installations on a “flood wiring” basis throughout premises. This together with home cinema and even computerised lighting has become a common request, along with all aspects of general domestic wiring and fault finding.
In partnership with “Cyberhomes” Lyons Electrical design and install fully automated home management systems into private properties controlling lighting, power, data, security and entertainment systems etc. As an example, our managing director’s house has run faultlessly for the past 10 years, providing worldwide remote control and warnings of telephone faults, power-cuts and security.
Work site temporary supplies
Lyons Electrical carries an extensive stock of site temporary distribution panels, 400/230 -110volt transformers and 110volt fluorescent/festoon lighting, with stock item panels accepting loads of up to 3,000amps on three phase load distribution, all supplied with earth leakage protection. We are able to respond urgently to any given emergency, or alternatively plan and install a long term temporary solution to any on-going project. A typical example is the temporary 110volt fluorescent lighting and power of Strood railway tunnel enabling refurbishment to be carried out by our client.
Building management services (BMS)
Lyons Electrical design and install fully automated building management systems into industrial, commercial, private and public properties controlling lighting, power, data, security and entertainment systems.As an example, Lyons Electrical provided the BMS controlling the mechanical installation at the new “River Island “head offices at Hanger Lane, London.
Supply and installation of generators
Over our years of trading Lyons Electrical has installed many generators of varying sizes from hospital standby or temporary construction site supply to private single dwelling automatic mains failure (AMF) backup facilities.
As an example, our company shipped and installed an 850kVA standby generator to the island of Tenerife as a backup for holiday apartments on Pebble Beach golf course.
Complete or part refurbishment is also a service that we are able to provide to customers, even (on occasions) relocating the source of the electrical supply to the client’s premises.

Our company has provided the maintenance and supply of street lighting to many commercial and public applications, typical examples of street lighting include the supply and installation of 89 No. bespoke stainless steel lighting columns and lanterns to Wembley Stadium Station and 78 No. street lights to the Lakeside Energy from Waste (EFW) plant at Colnbrook, Slough and a 3 year renewable lighting contract for Rochester Bridge in Kent.

Cable fault location and repair
Another example of our expertise is our ability to locate, and repair by jointing, open circuit or faulty cables, regardless of size. Our record to-date is a 600 metre run of 4 core 400mm² SWA cable at the base of the Woolwich sea wall. The open circuit fault was pin-pointed within a metre and repaired and re-commissioned within 48 hours (including excavation and backfill).
As a result of so many IT and power supplies being destroyed by lightning strikes and in accordance with the new 17th Edition Amendments of the I.E.T. Wiring Regulations, customers should consider a survey by Lyons Electrical regarding surge protection to their premises. As from January 1st 2012 surge protection is mandatory for all electrical installations.
