Snagging

Here we are, some 7 weeks after opening and we've still got a few "snags" on the electrics ... it seems that the ground here is a bit damp, and the uplighters are getting submerged, so there's some work to be redone. Ah, yes, you have to expect odd snags like that and for the majority of the works I would recommend / use the same people again.

I think what worries me about the lights (and the fire alarm system too, which is another story) is that we were assured it was an easy job. When problems occurred, the finger was pointed at us for running over the lights (all 11 of them???) with a heavy lorry. Then when we had disproved that, it was put down to a minor wiring error. Now it's something more serious. I would much, much rather have been told the truth in the first place, and I would much rather have had the contractor admit what the problems were than passing the blame to us. It leaves me wondering now if this third reason given is the real one. Or if there's something else even more fundamental. It also leaves my worried that - a week after they failed, with electricians still here as I write, what we'll do on any subsequent failure - if it takes THEM all this time to track down an issue, what chance have we once they're away?

But, these are small trials. By the very nature of this stage of a project, some 99.5% of the work is completed, completed to a high standard, and working and running. Alas, it's just the 0.5% that continues to be noticed and irritate.


Let's have a great Geekmas, everyone!
