City & Suburb was founded in 2015 by Daniel Ratcliffe, originally from the UK, after working as a skilled, fully trained electrician in Australia since 2009. “Danny” started his career back in his home town of Manchester working on house extensions and renovations, before moving onto working on multi-dwelling student accommodation. When he arrived in Australia he went even bigger, working on new-build, high rise apartments in Sydney, as well as commercial shop fitouts around the country.
After falling in love with Sydney, he committed to making it his permanent home by working his way up the ladder in his job as a supervisor. This is where he gained extensive experience and knowledge in small to medium sized residential projects, taking on the design, installation and commissioning of a number of high value properties. Projects could range from bespoke kitchens, ambient lighting, or home automation, to full property rewires. Whilst also continuing to work on commercial projects, such as full shop, restaurant and bar fit outs, and wiring complete office data systems.
It was in 2015 that Danny decided to take things in a new direction; always proud of the quality and standard of his work, he decided to put his own name to it and create City & Suburb. Although we are still a young company, Danny’s passion for his work and dedication to quality and high standards has already built a strong portfolio of clients for City & Suburb.
