This is a common practice among professional electricians and you will always notice that they maintain the same standard throughout the building.
Map the electrical connection
You will often notice that having a proper map of the electrical connection in the building will help you in future when there is any maintenance work to be done to any of the components. This is also useful when you have to add a new switchboard or circuit to the existing electrical network in your building. This does not take too much time when you plan it properly and all you have to do is to trace the electrical connections through the building and note down the circuits in a proper map.
Use appropriate safety

You can even test the wires before touching them with bare hands and this helps you to avoid electric shocks. In this way, you can comfortably work on the wiring activities without worrying about any issues.
Install appropriate ground fault circuit breakers
This helps you to avoid surges and all the electrical and electronic components in the building will be protected with the help of these devices. You will have lots of benefits when you install them in the initial stages of wiring.
Choose the best quality equipment
When you choose the wires of appropriate capacity, you will not have any issues when building the network and they will also last for a long duration and help you to avoid maintenance activities in future.
