The Benefits of Using a Multi-Utility Services Provider

The Benefits of Using A Multi-Utility Services Provider

The process of connecting utilities for industrial developments is a tedious and complex one. With many different parties and multiple connection points involved, getting your head around and coordinating them can be a nightmare. The process is not only expensive, but also frustrating when having to go through similar steps over and over. To overcome this, you can use a multi-utility services company such as Crown Utilities, who will reduce the burden and eradicate the complications, with a complete service from start to finish.

What is a multi-utility services provider?

A multi-utility services provider acts as an Independent Connection Provider (ICP), who can supply you with an all-inclusive solution encompassing gas services, electricity services and water services, as a single, full service utilities maintenance services provider.

Using the services of a single company to work across your new or existing utilities infrastructure will often ensure that this part of your project is carried out far more smoothly. The planning and carrying out of any remedial work on project will therefore not require multiple utility companies to align their schedules and planning in order to work together.

How is using a multi-utility company better than using individual utility companies?

Of course, we’re not suggesting that there won’t be times when employing individual companies to work on different aspects of your utilities infrastructure won’t make more sense for your project. We’ve helped many homeowners, landlords and businesses in such a way over the years. Working with other contractors to align our own work and plans in order to ensure we’re able to carry out all work we need to do.

There are going to be times when for instance you’ve employed a specialist utility contractor to work on one part of your project on the understanding that other parts of your utility infrastructure may not need any additional work. On commencement of the work, it may then become clear that further work on another or all of your utilities is required that your current contractor is unable to manage for you.

In these instances, it would now require two or more utility service providers to work together in order to carry out all of the required work on your project. When things go well, there should be no issues and your project should run smoothly and be completed on time.

However, with multiple contractors on site, you may need to spend more time project managing and ensuring that the different companies working on different aspects or your utilities infrastructure are adhering to your agreed time lines to ensure that delays are not going to impact the work of any other utility contractor.

Although working with a single utility company to work on and manage all aspects of your project will often help to speed things up and ensure a smoother completion of your project. That isn’t to say they will not encounter problems along the way. The clear and obvious difference is that if they should, it should be far easier to overcome these issues and find solutions that should ensure your project is still able to come on in-time and on budget.

One-stop multi-utility solutions

All areas of utilities will be covered from an integrated full-service package, tailor-made to your exact requirements. By scrapping having to deal with several companies for different areas on the same premises, you will reduce a huge chunk of your management and effectively benefit from streamlined project management skills.

Single point of contact

Only one service provider handles the entire connection process from the outset. They will manage any problems onsite and ensure they’re resolved quickly and professionally. That way, they can assess project requirements, evaluate design and build options and understand cost and timescales, to give you a clearer picture of completion dates.

Fewer contact points, mean better communication – and better communication means more efficient service. They will directly install, plan and coordinate works with the incumbent network owners to carry out a seamless installation service, eliminating the need for you to contact multiple parties to get your site connected.

Quicker completion times for your utility projects

It’s a well-known fact that dealing with land ownership rights when setting up infrastructure takes a fair bit of time. Associated legal work with land and access rights for utility infrastructure is a common route of delay because it usually involves third party, councils, statutory bodies, landowners and solicitors.

Procuring water, gas and electricity through one provider reduces the bureaucracy and paperwork. Having all areas under control will enable you to meet tight deadlines of a big project that involves large investment.

What’s more, a multi-utility provider can proactively work on resolving any future problems that could arise due to third party property owners. By providing a comprehensive design and build package, they can help alleviate the risk of delays, resulting in significant time and cost savings.

Cost-effective solutions for your utility infrastructure

Multi-utility companies can make the connection for multiple networks via the same trench. Most ICPs have their own team to make sure the connections are installed through the most efficient means. This is the most cost-effective way and also takes care of the compliance according to the standards and guidelines outlined by the authorities. They will ensure infrastructure is routed in the most efficient manner too.

What’s more, choosing one provider to handle multiple utilities at once, be it gas, electricity and water services, makes good money sense. The process involves designing, planning and installation for only one time that enables a service provider to concentrate on quality rather than quantity.
