Utility specialist services

Our engineering team can undertake all aspects of specialist utility services such as installation and protection, from early planning and investigation to project management of utility installation within new and existing bridge structures and public transport facilities.

Our utility layout and protection engineers will co-ordinate with the project design team to assess layout options to ensure the most cost effective and practical installation solution. We will undertake detailed analysis to identify the risks identified and will design the installation or protection works to mitigate risk within the project planning stage. We will provide a pre-tender solution which thereby minimises change and associated impact on time, cost and quality.

Our early planning and option engineering includes the following services designed to minimise project risk through:-

  • Carrying out site investigation works to confirm existing ground conditions and to assess condition and layout of existing structures to determine optimum layout solutions.
  • Co-ordinating wayleave and easement negotiations to minimise any associated risks to cost and programme
  • Liaison with third parties such as the Local Authority, Environment Agency, Network Rail and others to ensure their full cooperation prior to the tender stage.
  • Production of detailed technical reports to enable preparation of preliminary estimates for project approval.

Our utility layout and protection engineering team have numerous years of experience working within all areas of the utility industry. Previous installation and protection projects range from installation and protection of gas, water and telecoms services with new and existing bridge structures, installation of high pressure gas main protection works across varying installations through inner city, urban and rural landscapes.
