Groundworks & electrical connection


Garden Office Lighting – Electrical Connection & Groundworks.

We offer a flexible service that works with you, we can undertake the entire project including electrical connection and ground works.


Does my Smart Garden Office need a concrete base?


The Smart Garden Office range is designed for simplicity. We therefore supply every Smart Office with it’s own base – the black band around the base. This is constructed from heavy duty, pressure treated timber and can be located in the wettest of locations.

With the Micro and Solo garden office ranges, in many locations, you don’t require a concrete base as long as the area is solid, level and well drained.

With the Duo, Extro, Trio, Quarto or Quinto ranges we can prepare a concrete base (or ring beam) prior to the installation of your office, if you wish.

Call us on 0800 242 5559 to chat through your own chosen location – and we’ll happily visit you to survey your garden and provide you with an additional quotation for any ground works, base or electrical connection and commissioning you may require.

Who completes the ground works? 

We can!

We have our own dedicated in-house ground works team and can undertake all preparation that may be necessary. Typically, we complete all ground works within just one day – with the minimum of fuss and disruption to you.

We can provide you with a fully itemised quotation for any ground works when we visit you to survey your garden


Do garden offices have electrics?

Whilst many garden office suppliers consider electrics to be an optional extra, all Smart Garden Offices are supplied with a complete set of integral electrics. That means all cabling is hidden within the wall cavity and there’s plenty of electrical sockets, positioned where you want them. Attractive 240v halogen spotlight fittings which are ceiling mounted. Each Smart building is supplied with it’s own consumer unit (fusebox) too. We can also arrange the electrical commissioning of your office and can provide a full quotation for this service following your site survey.

How are garden offices lit?

Surprisingly, not all garden office suppliers include lighting in their standard package. However, every Smart Garden Office includes plentiful internal lighting from attractive 240v (mains) spotlight fittings. Our Micro is supplied with 4 x 50w, the Solo 4 x 50w, the Duo with 8 X 50w, Trio and Quarto with 16 x 50w lights. All controlled by push dimmer switches so you have total control over the lighting in your office. We also offer optional exterior lights on a PIR switch – so that on those cold dark winters nights you never left in the dark!

Do I need an electrician to connect my garden office?

Your garden office will need connecting to your main consumer unit (household fusebox). We offer the full connection service as an optional extra – and our fully trained and experienced electrician will connect your garden office to Part P standards on the same day as we install your building. We can arrange it all.

What kind of electrician do I need?

If you wish to use your own electrician to connect your garden office then we recommend you engage a professional electrician who will sign off your connection to Part P.
