I’ve used Apex Doma on a number of occasions, and every experience has been excellent. Without a doubt they are my first point of call now - excellent from start to finish, the office support lets me know when they are coming (and they always turn up on time!). I can’t recommend highly enough.
Setting the standard for service
Carried out the work efficiently and with minimum disruption to me, also happy to discuss technical options and gave me useful information to help to decide what was needed I'd use Apex Doma again for any future work.
The engineer arrived when promised and tidied up after himself when the job was completed. There was a small problem with the installation, but this was corrected without any fuss.
Work carried out as promised.
Sam Morgan came out from Apex Doma to fit an-extra socket in my sons bedroom. What a professional, friendly lovely electrician. Work was spot on and he cleaned up after. I would highly recommend Apex Doma and will definitely use them again. One very happy customer. Thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions
HELPING YOU SORT THE FACT FROM FICTION!
PAT Testing is sticking stickers and a box-ticking exercise. Why bother?
PAT testing isn't just sticker sticking. PAT testing for portable appliances includes insulation resistance testing, a low ohm reading test and a complete visual inspection. This set of tests is designed to stop the risk of fires, minimise risk to sensitive electronic equipment and can prevent electric shock.
PAT testing also ensures your business's compliance with the health and safety at work act 1974 and the electricity at work regulations 1989.
I have natural light at the front of my premises; I don’t need emergency lighting.
In some circumstances, this could be correct. But the following should be considered:
New installations – We work closely with a 3rd party design team that will design an emergency lighting system for you from scratch; all we need is a meeting with you and some layout drawings (we can organise these if you don’t have them). We can then specify a suitable emergency lighting that meets all the latest legislation requirements. We will consider natural light given from windows. All our systems will be designed considering energy efficiency and cost efficiency for the short and long term.
Existing installations - It is a statutory requirement that for existing properties, a suitable fire risk assessment is completed. This must be done by someone who has undergone training (a competent person). Consideration must be given to each exit door, escape routes, Intersection of corridors, Outside each final exit and on external escape routes, emergency escape signs, stairways so that each flight receives adequate light, changes in floor level, windowless rooms and toilet accommodation exceeding 8m², fire-fighting equipment, fire alarm call points, equipment that would need to be shut down in an emergency, lifts, areas in premises greater than 60m² to ensure the minimum requirements of BS 5266, BS7671 and the regulatory reform (fire safety order) are met.
As part of this risk assessment, natural lighting would be considered as one of the options to light these areas.
