pre-cabling contractor

I'm not at all sure if the same concept even exists in EN, and/or if there is an official term for it. So this might be one relatively succinct way of explaining it.

I've just come up with the term that might be more suitable myself: 'pre-fabricated cabling contractor' (etc.)
