Electrical Contractors in Bangladesh are like a business firm that takes over the construction work of a place. They are usually involved in the designing and maintaining of electronics. To be more precise, electrical contractors decide how and where electrical instruments are being installed and whether they are operating properly or not.   

In today’s day and age, electrical contractors are quite important as you can barely find any project that does not require an electrical contractor. In this article, we are going to take a closer look at the job of an electrical contractor and how they differ from an electrician.

The job of electrical contractors in Bangladesh

You need an electrical contractor to start any project. There is no direct answer to what an electrical contractor does. Electrical contractors have their specialty, and they work according to their skill sets. 

Architects or engineers make the design of a place, but the contractors take it a bit further. They check if the provided design is sustainable, and if it is, they detail it even further. If the design is finalized they then, proceed to determine the budget and insurance policies. After all the procedures, they make a schedule of how the work will be completed and start the construction work right away. Having a good electrical contractor can reduce the building cost by quite a lot as they know what they are doing. Experienced electrical contractors will lower the number of reworks and also make sure that the construction work goes smoothly. 

Difference between an electrical contractor and an electrician

Often we see people confuse an electrician with an electrical contractor. While both may sound similar but an electrical contractor is quite different from an electrician. 

An electrician is a single person who works for himself and gets paid for his works. He can choose to work for the type of company he prefers. He can choose to work individually or for a company or even an electrical contractor too. While an electrician is a single person, an electrical contractor is an entity consisting of several persons. 

If you are an electrician, you will need training and a license before attempting to do any electrical works. You can also choose to study as much as you want to gain more knowledge about electronics. The studies will depend on the type of electrician you want to become. How much accomplish an electrician will become or what career path he will take will depend on him and him only.

On the other hand, an electronic contractor cannot do things like earning a degree, joining a training program, or choose what career path to take. You do need a license for being an electrical contractor though. 

The job of an electrician consists of

  • Dealing with low voltage electronics like optical fiber, or telecommunication system, etc.
