hi, most will need plastic small consumer unit eg 'garage unit' with tails connected to rcd main switch. Earth rod with earth connected to rod in pit or surface box, & to earth bar in 'garage unit'.
One local socket ,normally a double, connected to mcb, with test sheets filled in as far as possible ie all dead tests such as I.R. r1+r2 ect.
Fully marked and labelled with leckies name as responsible person, RCD & periodic test labels 'warning 230 V' labels inside and outside box.
Luck and a following wind helps too!!
