As a leading Electrical Contractor based in Plymouth in the South West of England, JAH Electrical Services Ltd provides a professional, quality service to businesses and organisations across the South West – from Land’s End to Weymouth – and across the UK, as needed.

We have carried out and continue to work on a number of significant electrical contracting projects for the Tourism and Hospitality sector.

We have included a few examples in this blog to give you an idea of the type of contracting work we carry out.


Glazebrook House Hotel, South Brent

The new owners of this luxury hotel, Pieter and Fran Hamman, were looking to completely renovate and refurbish the hotel over a 6 month period. We were recommended to them by a Client we had previously done work for.

The timescale for the project was tight, as there was a great deal of work to be done. The JAH Team worked round the clock to ensure the hotel would be ready for its May opening. We of course worked with the designers to ensure that the high-quality finish was achieved. 

Our initial brief was to work on the front-of-house areas within the hotel. In the end, the works we completed included:

  • A total refurbishment of all areas of the hotel
  • A complete re-wire of the hotel, including bringing in 3-Phase power supply from an adjacent farmer’s field. We also had to change the local transformers – again, in the farmer’s field!
  • General power
  • Fire alarm
  • Automated LED lighting
  • Emergency lighting
  • Data wiring

Jamie Hitchcock, Managing Director of JAH Electrical Services Ltd. says:

“We are proud to have an ongoing relationship with Glazebook House Hotel, and to provide maintenance services as needed. This was an exciting project and we have since carried out many more in the commercial sector.

Please take a look at some photos of our work at this stunning hotel.”

“We can’t express enough how much we appreciate and value our relationship with JAH. Jamie and his team have been with us at the hotel from day one and to this day, they continue to help us develop our hotel through the introduction of new innovative ideas and technology that we had never dreamt imaginable. 

The lighting throughout the hotel works seamlessly to create a truly unique ambience and atmosphere that can be fine tuned for any and every occasion, mood or time of day and the entire look and feel of the hotel owes a lot to the incredible work they have done. We’ll be working with them for many, many years to come.”

Whitsand Bay Fort

“Again, we gained this work through a recommendation. We started work around 18 months ago. The project entailed the conversion and refurbishment of 8 chalets, 4 last year and 4 this year.

This is a beautiful location, just 45 minutes from Plymouth, by the beach and with stunning views. It’s perfect for a short break, and in fact we stayed here ourselves last year for a wedding,” Jamie Hitchcock.

On this project the works included:

  • Re-wiring
  • All new underground sub-mains from the local switch room to the new chalets
  • Brand new power & lighting
  • The supply of showers, heaters and water heaters

We are currently carrying out 5 Yearly Testing and Inspection for Whitsand Bay Fort, as part of our ongoing relationship with our client.

Ridge and Furrow Pub, Gloucester

In addition to hotels and holiday parks, JAH also provide electrical contracting services to pubs.

Sage Rowe recommended us for the work at the Ridge and Furrow Pub, and we completed the following works:

  • an upgrade of the lighting, including the kitchen servery lighting
  • a mains upgrade
  • outside lighting
  • perimeter lighting
  • signage lighting

So, as you will see from this blog, at JAH we are delighted to be recommended time and time again, for our Commercial and Industrial Contracting work, as well as for our Domestic Electrical work.
