    Hi Bob Chavez,

    when one does any alteration and addition (AnA) or renovation, certain existing elements in the property are professionally checked to bring them to a safe and legal compliance standard.

    Often the rewiring of the property is part of the renovation process so as not to incur any extra cost doing this separately at different intervals. Of course, the actual rewiring or possible re routing of electrical points is done by a qualified electrician and all other work would be carried out by your appointed contractor.

    Rewiring often forms part of the first phase of any renovation work. This is done so that your contractor is able to plaster over all points that have been moved or changed.

    You contractor would advice you to hack your walls first and then engage an electrician and complete his rewiring and thereafter contractor continues with his part of the work.

    Usually the contractor handles and communicates with his electrician and plumber.

    I am assuming you asked the question as you have engage an independent electrician to do the rewiring.

    My advice to you is to engage one reputable contractor who will handle everything as often the overlap of work becomes an issue as the project progresses.

    Hope my response helps you in making your decision. All the best.
