Our Account Management team start liaising with local councils to arrange section 50 notices, and agree appropriate traffic management systems to ensure minimal disruption and ensure public safety. They also look to order site materials, including substations, ahead of time which we are able to hold in our warehouse. This means that there is no delay in obtaining these when they are required on site.
Legal agreements form part of this planning stage and our dedicated and organised team ensure that these aren’t the headache they are traditionally thought of. We go out of our way to ensure that your solicitor understands the requirements of your site and the documentation that they will be faced with. This, unusually for our industry, involves pre-start legal meetings with you and your solicitor to put in place a high level of understanding before the off. Our legal team sits internally with our technical and design teams so, from a very early stage, they know the agreements that will be required and any potential restraints in terms of land ownership issues.
Our strong relationships with asset owners and regulators allows us to talk through options on a scheme and plan in works ahead of time, making sure that there are no hold ups due to dotting the ‘I’s’ and crossing the ‘T’s’, clearing the path for meaningful progress on site.
Our detailed internal handovers between Design and Operations makes the whole team aware of a contract and the works required on it. Each member of our team has an individual speciality and this depth of knowledge means that your utilities are delivered to the highest standard.
