Ian Blake

Managing Director

Ian Blake, Managing Director of Blake Building and Electrical Contractors, Southend, Essex & London

From small beginnings as an electrician’s apprentice in the 60s, I set up on my own as a sole trader starting Blake Electrical in 1979. I have grown Blake Contractors into a one stop shop for Building & Electrical services – so you don’t have to project manage a range of different tradesmen. We can do everything in house.

We gained our first accreditation with NICEIC back in 1981 because I realised how important it was differentiate ourselves from the many unqualified alternatives.

In 2001, Blake Electrical became Blake Contractors Ltd and in 2002 our Fire & Security Systems department began offering a full security service as an SSAIB accredited provider. This was followed by the Rolls Royce of security certifications – NSI Gold – in 2005.

If any electrical or building work impacts upon existing fire and security arrangements/equipment, our one stop shop can handle this in house without having to employ third parties.

Our company ethos – dedication to accreditation – derives from over three decades of cleaning up the fallout from unqualified advice. If we are not qualified to do it, we do not offer it as a service! Simple.

When I’m not troubleshooting complex building / electrical / fire and security projects, I am a keen runner.
