Development and construction projects are often subject to costly delays as a result of problems with utility companies. With so many different aspects to manage, co-ordinating all utility services can prove extremely challenging. UPL’s utility infrastructure and connections management facility makes it simple.
With an experienced value engineering team and specialist wayleaves facility, UPL helps to ensure that your project is undertaken on time and within budget. Using our in-depth knowledge of utility infrastructure systems, land ownership rights and charging methods, we are able to reduce connection costs and ensure prompt delivery of services.
De-regulation in the utility industry has opened up many opportunities for cost reduction but has simultaneously made the market more complex for the end customer. UPL’s aim is to manage this process on behalf of our customers using our detailed design knowledge and understanding of the utility’s regulatory obligations, and providing the independent link that enables best utilisation of the burgeoning competitive connections and utility asset market.
We represent customers on OFGEM’s working group for competition in connections (CinC), and on the Electricity Connections Steering Group (ECSG), as an independent utility and engineering company with no vested interest other than that of our clients.
Whether you require help with organising utility connections, disconnections, diversions or service upgrades, UPL can manage everything on your behalf. Our value engineering team can assess optimal points of connection and minimise refinforcement requirement, whilst our wayleaves department will determine and negotiate all new and existing land rights. With UPL, and our web enabled project management systems, managing utility infrastructure and connections couldn’t be easier.
