Looking for Birmingham Electricians?
When was the moment we decided to set up Contract Labour Solutions in our home city of Birmingham? There isn’t one simple answer to that, but we all agree that working on the iconic Library of Birmingham in 2013 was a pivotal moment for us. We’d witnessed the gradual transformation of Birmingham city centre over the years, but being a part of it was a tremendous buzz – it made us proud to be Brummies!
Since then, we’ve continued to be part of the reshaping of the city. Contract Labour Solutions provided the electrical installation for the new HSBC headquarters on Bridge Street. And just this year we completed the electrical installation for another iconic building; this time it was Project Apple, also part of the Arena Central development on Bridge Street.
Looking for Electrical Contractors in Walsall?
It’s thought that the name ‘Walsall’ derives from ‘Walh Halh’ which means ‘valley of the Welsh speakers’. The town sits resolutely in the West Midlands, though, 55 miles east of the Welsh border and just 8 miles from Birmingham city centre. Walsall is one of the towns forged by the Industrial Revolution, which is when it became a global leader in the production of leather goods. Now, its proximity to the M6 has transformed it from a producer to a distributor of goods.
Contract Labour Solutions electrical engineers are regular visitors to the town – in fact, we remember visiting the famous illuminations at the Arboretum as kids. Now, though, our role is to install, maintain and repair electrics, rather than wonder at them! And we’ve never yet met anyone speaking Welsh in Walsall…
Case Study – Electrical Installation for Harrow-on-the-Hill Primark
As an electrical contractor in Birmingham many of our commercial electrical installations are located in the West Midlands. We also work across the UK, however, and the installation for Primark in Harrow-on-the-Hill is a case in point. This project was completed on behalf of our client, ECO-1.
How to Choose an Electrician
Choosing an electrician isn’t the same as choosing a decorator, or even a plumber for the simple reason that any mistakes they make could be fatal for you, your employees, or your family. It sounds dramatic, but the stakes are high when you take on an electrician to rewire your home, or provide electrical installation. Ask any electrician and they’ll have a few horror stories about the ‘botch jobs’ they’ve encountered in their time.
Knowing how to choose an electrician could save you money in the long run, and – potentially – save lives. It requires a bit of research along the way, but if the result is you find an electrician you can trust with all your commercial or domestic electrical services, it will certainly have been worth the time and effort.
Electrical Installation Completed on Project Apple, Birmingham
A few months ago we announced that we were starting work on an electrical installation as part of ‘Project Apple’ in Birmingham. We’ve now successfully completed installation on 6 of the 12 floors of a new office block in the Arena Central development.

The range of specialist skills we offer means that we’re able to provide our Birmingham clients with comprehensive electrical services, from the initial process of scoping a project, through design and installation, to maintenance.
Looking for Electrical Contractors in Solihull?
Solihull may feel like a semi-rural suburb of Birmingham, but if that were truly the case, it’s punching well above its weight. It would be more accurate to describe the town as an economic success story that’s retained its historic core. At the heart of Solihull is its varied, busy High Street, but behind the scenes there are some industrial and corporate giants driving local business growth.
Jaguar and Land Rover is located in Solihull, as is the entertainment complex, Resorts World, and the largest collection of British motorcycles in the world, at the National Motorcycle Museum. Oh, and we haven’t even mentioned Birmingham Airport, used by thousands of travellers each year. No wonder this is one of the most affluent areas of Birmingham, or that it’s such a popular place to live.
Looking for Local Electricians in Dudley?
Dudley sits at the heart of the Black Country in the West Midlands. The town’s credited with giving birth to the industrial revolution, which altered the region immeasurably, and changed its fortunes. From the Victorian period right through to the 1960s, industry drove the economics of the area. Over the past 50 years, though, it’s been forced to change its focus, and character.
21st century Dudley is home to the Black Country Museum, which celebrates a way of life that has now mostly disappeared, and Dudley Zoo, incorporating a castle and caverns, which has been a major attraction for families since it opened in 1937. It’s recently undergone a huge regeneration project and now places its focus on conservation of endangered species.
Looking for Local Electricians in Stourbridge?
Stourbridge sits just 13 miles west of Birmingham, right on the edge of ‘the Black Country’. This term is still used extensively by Brummies, but can be bewildering to people living outside the region. It was first used in the 1840s to describe the industrial heartland of the industrial region. The ‘Black country’ is popularly thought to refer to the layer of soot deposited on homes and factories by the intensive industry in the area.
Contemporary Stourbridge couldn’t be further from the images of 19th century ‘dark Satanic mills’! It sits just north of the beautiful Clent hills and is known for the unique ‘rock houses’ at Kinver Edge. It still celebrates its heritage as a glass making centre, but today its businesses reflect the preoccupations of the 21st century. It’s a great base for establishing a business, due to its proximity to the motorway network – and it’s just a 40 minute drive to Birmingham city centre.
