DRF Electrical

Electrical Contractors to Commerce and Industry Installation, Maintenance & Testing, Fire Alarms, Emergency Lighting & Life Systems


Our core business has been the retail sector where we have worked for blue chip clients on the High Street, such as EE, Specsavers, Gant and J Crew to name but a few.

Our capability and experience covers single stores to nationwide electrical system upgrade roll-outs and new store fit-outs. We specialise in designing all elements of a project including electrical wiring, data cabling, internal and external lighting, fire and life systems.

We work directly with major retailers and shopfitting companies as well as independent high street businesses.


We have extensive experience in industrial electrical contracting including maintenance. Our engineers are trained to British standards and our specifiers understand the complexities of industrial systems and the standard of heavy duty equipment that is required.

We have been involved with carrying out works within the industrial sector for Travis Perkins, City Plumbing Supplies and Benchmarx Joinery. We have been responsible on a number of these projects for providing a design and build service to the clients in order to ensure the exacting specifications issued are met.

We work with logistics and distribution firms, manufacturers, warehousing and storage companies and other businesses in the industrial sector including chemical, pharmaceutical and technology firms.


We work with contractors, developers and property management companies to deliver a full range of commercial electrical projects. Our commercial work includes maintenance and testing as well as electrical upgrades and installs.

Both Category A and B fit out works have been carried out within the commercial sector with some of the larger office floors covering over 900 square metres. We have assisted clients with designs of the infrastructures for both lighting and power layouts, providing manufacturers data sheets and Relux calculations where required. Structured cabling installations covering both voice and data have also been provided.

Our design and specification experience means we are often involved from the early stages of a project, following it through every step including procurement, installation and project management, testing and maintenance.


Over the last few years we have undertaken works within the leisure industry for such clients as The Ottolenghi Group, Chipotle and Benugo. These works have been carried out at places of a sensitive nature like The Barbican, The Natural History Museum, Coventry Transport Museum and The National Science Museum, where detailed forward planning is a must and excellent communication is paramount.

Leisure sector and hospitality projects have a strong focus on customer experience. We work with hotels, restaurants and other leisure sector businesses and our electrical designs for clients in this sector often have a strong focus on ambience, innovation and functionality.

We understand that electrical upgrades and refurbishment work often demands a sensitive approach and careful planning to minimise operational impact. We are also mindful of the importance of adhering to strict budgets and timescales.
