    Re: Kindly correct the following sentence

    Sorry Anglika, that is almost certainly not the intended meaning. Neither statement is good in an engineering document.

    Without more information, I'm guessing a bit here, but JRD is probably referring to writing an engineering statement of what actions are required to complete a job that he is quoting for.

    Earlier in the document he has probably already stated what work is required to properly install (or upgrade) a power socket. This particular statement is probably referring to a specific location where he is proposing to 'upgrade power sockets as required, to the above standard', which means that where power sockets are currently substandard, they will be upgraded to the previously mentioned standard, and where they are currently ok, they will not be upgraded.

    I've worked in Dubai, and this is a common thing for someone to have to do!

    JRD: give a bit more information about what you mean and I'll give a more accurate answer.

    As usual it is a matter of context. Without context the answer will have to depend on interpreting the words given.
