Leading South West electrical contractor Clarkson Evans has been awarded a contract to wire the first 100 homes being built by national house builder Bovis Homes at Sherford, a new market town community being built on the outskirts of Plymouth.

The Sherford development, which it is anticipated will take 20 years to complete, will eventually comprise of 5,500 homes, four schools, community facilities and a business quarter.

The consortium development being built by leading house builders Bovis Homes, Linden Homes and Taylor Wimpey, will occupy over 1,200 acres of farmland on the eastern outskirts of Plymouth between the A38 and A379.

“Bovis Homes has been an important customer of ours for a number of years and our teams have previously wired new homes built by the housebuilder in Devon,” said Tim Bisp, Commercial Director at Clarkson Evans

“Being awarded the contract to wire the first initial development phase for Bovis Homes is a great result for Clarkson Evans. Being trusted on such a prestigious and exciting project is a real coup for us,” he added.

Apprentices and electricians work on Sherford development

Clarkson Evans specialises in wiring new homes for the UK’s leading housing developers and is on track to wire 16,000 new properties in England and Wales this year.

As a Top 100 Apprentice Employer nationally Clarkson Evans hopes that the Sherford development will generate further electrical apprenticeship opportunities for young people in the Plymouth area.

“We pride ourselves in providing exciting opportunities for those looking for a long-term career with us,” said Mr Bisp.

In total Clarkson Evans employs more than 750 staff and operates across much of southern England, the Midlands and South Wales. Despite operating in an industry that was hit hard by the recession, the company has been steadily expanding in the last five years and it is anticipated that the Sherford development will play a key role in the future expansion of the business in the Devon area.
