Utility Infrastructure
& Energy Management


UPL’s thorough utility feasibility study service plays an important role in all pre-project planning. We provide a comprehensive report detailing all existing utility constraints, wayleave issues, reinforcement and planning requirements.

At the beginning of your project, UPL will provide a comprehensive analysis of the area of your works. This includes details of all existing utilities, their locations, whether they remain in use and who owns or is responsible for each element.

Using this knowledge, our team of experts will examine and assess your development requirements and carefully plan and provide budget costs for the most timely and cost-effective utility diversions and new connections infrastructure. Our specialist wayleave team will also investigate the legal rights held over the site by existing utilities, and will advise on all the legal aspects of removal, diversions or retention of incumbent utility services. Detailed reporting includes:

  • Diversified load assessments
  • Early visibility of bugdet costings
  • Timescales for all necessary works
  • Full assessment of all removal and diversion works required
  • Assessment of reinforcement requirements
  • Fast-track process for provision of existing utility information
  • Identification of risks in utility costs and timescale at an early stage
  • Potential for utility issues to be included in tender proposals
  • A strategy to eliminate or minimise diversion and wayleave costs
