David Paradine was established in 1967 with long term commitment to the JIB, NICEIC and Quality Assurance. For what was once a traditional electrical contracting company, our capabilities have been enhanced through development of ICT and collaborative working with HVAC partners to provide complete building systems solutions. 

Our core business is complete electro-technical system solutions for either traditional or design & build schemes up to an individual project value of £1,500,000.00 centred around healthcare, commercial and educational sectors. Based in the West Midlands, we maintain a strong regional focus with the capabilities for national coverage through our central location.

In addition to our core business we also offer MEP solutions through collaborative working practices with mechanical partners, a special projects team and also a dedicated ICT team with warrantied solutions from world leading manufacturers.

You can find more about these areas of expertise throughout the website, however if you require further information please do not hesitate to get in touch with the team.
