Requirements for Electrical Wiring Project for a House

I think you're over-engineering it. Nobody really bothers specifying cable locations that precisely for electrical wiring. There are rules to protect electrical wires from damage, but they don't involve precise mechanical drawings of the build. Further, you aren't going to be able to find anyone to install it to your diagram. Electrical engineers don't do house wiring, and electricians who do house wiring don't follow diagrams precisely like that, they just throw it in quick-and-dirty. Wiring is protected from damage, but using different techniques - for instance in North America there's a rule that you can go in 1-5/8" (40mm) without concern because wires and pipes are either guaranteed to be deeper than that, or will be guarded by a metal warning plate. However, since you are aiming for top quality and easy maintainability, there is definitely something you should think about: Metal conduit. This is where you lay a type of pipe designed for electrical service (and some of it pipe-fits quite easily) and then you run the circuits in the pipe using individual wires (i.e. Not with multi-conductor cables). The piping does several things for you. Generally, data cables are not allowed in mains electrical conduit or junction boxes, due to the risk of a wire melt putting mains voltage on equipment not rated for it. (Fiber-optic is OK). However you can lay parallel conduit for telecomm, and that conduit can be plastic. Suffice it to say, designing a good conduit system is a very good outlet for the high standards you are setting

I am remodeling a house and need to put in place a completely new electrical wiring along with security and surveillance systems (wiring for motion sensors and CCV cameras outside).

I am going to hire an engineer for the project. However I'd like to understand the typical requirements for such a project to be better prepared for my conversations with contractors.

My idea is to ask for a CAD project with a set of diagrams/views. Specifically, the following:

Blueprint with all the lights, sockets, switches, meter and

distribution board placed on the floor plan.

Schema listing the cable types and maximum power allowed per circuit.

Distribution board plan.

Exact layout of cable on walls/ceilings including enclosures, where needed (2D/3D?).

Once the above is complete, I would expect the engineer to control the execution of the plan and test the wiring once it is installed.

Overall, I want to accomplish 2 things:

Ease of maintenance for years to come.

High quality electrical wiring to be built.

Questions I have:

Are there any important artifacts/documents I should be asking the engineer to provide?

Should I be asking an electrical engineer to also design the wiring for CCV cameras and motion sensors or is this job best left to someone else?

Perhaps I am over-engineering and the above list can be simplified?

UPDATE

I am located in Europe and not concerned much with the local regulations as I am sure the requirements for regulators will be met at the end.

I think you can put stuff from the computer on to it and charge it1. Tech Tip: How to Pull a Data Cable | Automated Systems DesignIn today's tech tip experienced technician Ernest will show us how to pull a data cable and begin installing a low voltage cable. For this demonstration, we will be using Data Drop in a Box the first all-inclusive data cabling kit. It has everything you need to do a single or double data drop, including: To start pulling a cable, you need to fasten the box to something because as you pull the cable, the box will continue to get lighter and move around. By attaching it to a ladder or another Data Drop in a Box, it will stay in place and allow for smoother pulling. To attach the box to a ladder locate the zip ties and put them through the holes in the corner of the box. Make sure the side that says "This Side Up" is facing up. Otherwise, you wo not have a hole to pull the cable through. Then, wrap the zip ties around the ladder and fasten. If you do not have a ladder, you could attach the box to a chair leg, table, etc. Now that your cables are anchored down they will be easier to pull and run to your desired location. When you are running the cable through the ceilings or walls there are a few things to look out for, most importantly, EMI or electromagnetic interference. You want to make sure that when you run the cable you are not too close to electrical equipment. This can cause interference and degrade the signal of the cable, causing slower internet speeds. Make sure there is at least a foot between your cable and the closest electrical wires. You also want to run your cable on your own supports throughout the ceiling. Do not try to attach them to plumbing, etc. Now that you know how to pull a data cable it's time to install your mud ring on the other side. Continue to Tech Tip #2 for further instructions.2. Soldering a SATA-Data cable to a HDDI did it once, on a homebrew hack-it-all frenzy on an old (2010 maybe?) toshiba laptop motherboard towards the original SATA disk.And it worked, and surprisingly well too. I made sure I soldered only ONE ground pin, because I was using an USB2 shielded cable and wanted to avoid ground loops (I would have had to join the 3 grounds on the same shield, and that would create 3 mini loops).Other than that, even if it works, use an external USB-to-SATA converter to avoid frying your motherboard and, after you recovered any precious data on the HDD, throw it away (or replace its controller board like others said). Expanding on the answers, to integrate comments to other answers from other people: GND may not be required, because the signals are balanced, but I would strongly recommend connecting it. Using an external USB-to-SATA converter may help you forcing a SATA 1 connection, which has larger tolerances towards relative cable lengths, other than preventing harm to the controller of the motherboard in case of misconnections / short circuits3.
