Design stage

The next stage is to translate the agreed technical solution into a buildable reality. The focus is on the intricate detail here and all relevant third party stakeholders are contacted with this in mind. Importantly safety risks are clarified at this stage and relevant risk assessments carried out where required.


Although you will have a single point of contact during the design phase, the entire team is accessible throughout your utility journey, and each member of staff will use their individual expertise to make sure your connections happen on time.


Through our innovation and communication we are setting the standards for the utility industry, engineering delivery, as well as networks. Our design team will not only design your network; both on and offsite, but they will also take into account your build programme and factor in early connection options should these be required.


Our operations team also get involved internally at this stage, so they are familiar with the scheme and can advise on the best network build timescales to suit your site and key milestone dates.



Our extensive in house design department comprises professional, qualified individuals with an eye for detail and passion for innovation.
