Building Network Operator
A Building Network Operator is responsible for the design, installation and maintenance of new riser and lateral sub-main cabling networks within buildings.
UK Power Networks have introduced a single standard for multi-occupancy buildings. The new standard will be effective across all three of their distribution network operator (DNO) regions. UK Power Networks have also introduced another single standard for the connection of new services above 100Amps, including the introduction of metering CT’s within the service cut out equipment. These changes have now been adopted by most other distribution networks operators.
You may be affected if you are a commercial landlord, property developer, house builder, property manager or electrical contractor and we are dedicated to helping you through the BNO networks process. It will affect many new builds or renovations projects including flats, office buildings and shopping centers and you should consider the BNO standards at the design and planning stage of the job.
The BNO standard needs to be adhered to in order for your local electrical DNO to be able to connect supplies to your building, we ensure that the installation we provide is fully compliant to your local DNOs standards, the installation also needs to complies with BS 7671.
We mimic the installation process that was previously provided by the network operators, and work with them to ensure that we work to the same set of standards and the correct equipment and cable is used.
