The fully managed solution for multi-utility infrastructure
Developing the utility infrastructure required for your construction project – whether new builds, major extensions, redevelopments, or regenerations – requires careful planning and deep understanding of the notoriously complex utility industry.
Our expert and dedicated multi-utility consultancy team provide a fully-managed service to ensure the successful and timely delivery of electricity, gas, water and telecoms infrastructure to your sites.
We take control of your project’s utility needs
Navigating the utility market can be extremely burdensome on business resources. That’s why our multi-utility consultancy specialises in taking care of the entire process for you. Providing an initial assessment of your needs via feasibility studies, through to the managed delivery of your connections and infrastructure, we act as your dedicated project partner and liaise with any and all third-party contractors and stakeholders, so you don’t have to.
Impartial, independent advice
With expertise cultivated over decades in the industry, we utilise our excellent relationships with Network Owners to coordinate your build programme, reducing the risk of clashes and costly delays, and providing you with the visibility and assurances required to get job done on time and within budget. Quite simply, our role is to give independent, impartial advice – helping navigate your project through to a successful completion and allowing you to concentrate on the core side of your business.
Scoping & Feasibility
Our fully costed multi-utility reports map out existing and proposed utility infrastructure and identify the potential risks to your project, including considerations around wayleaves and easements.
