Utility Infrastructure Services- A team with experience

Beond’s UIS team help all key stakeholders navigate through the challenging areas surrounding utilities new meter connections. From new build design, implementation through to getting power, gas and water live on site. We work directly with Quantity Surveyors, Architects, M&E Engineers, Property Developments and Construction companies to fine tune the life cycle to ensure projects are delivered on time and below budget.

We are able to do this as our team has been;

-Managing new connections since 2003
-Managed new connection teams in major Suppliers
-Set up the UK’s first designated new connections service delivery team
-Independent and creative approach to M&E design
-Vast industry network for best fit products and services

Our unrivalled experience gives us advanced insight and understanding of the connections process, design and implementation, which enables us to mitigate risks caused by typical issues such as:

-a lack of competition for infrastructure costs
-over specification of load requirements
-poor cost transparency and variable costs difficult to identify
-diffused responsibility across project stakeholders
-insufficient service levels from utility companies

With an independent and flexible approach, we use our experience to:

-insulate clients from poor advice
-avoid or minimise unnecessary or negotiable costs
-manage and co-ordinate project stakeholders
-bridge service delivery gaps between contractors, subcontractors and utility companies

Objectives differ in terms of project drivers, planning and legal constraints, project progress and completion dates. Our approach is tailored to each client and the specific project drivers and we have a proven track record of adding value at all stages.
