Our experience in live working environments and sectors, combined with our culture of innovation and continuous improvement helps us deliver the understanding, responsiveness and attention to detail that you desire and deserve for your power distribution schemes. From a simple sub-station and cable-routing to complex multi-asset, multi-discipline projects, we offer a bespoke service tailored to your needs; focused on delivering right-first-time, a quality, innovative and sustainable solution in a cost-effective, risk-free way.
Whole-life Supply Solutions
Our whole life engineering and projects approach ensures that we think beyond the specifics of the individual scheme requirements and work with you to develop a strategy that ensures you achieve the best value for your generation and distribution assets. Through effective risk management and asset integration processes we develop and implement solutions that are sensitive to your needs and wider objectives.
Our broad project experience allows gives us a depth of knowledge to ensure our service-led solutions are centred on your processes and structures to provide the best possible outcomes for your asset. We recognise that these projects often require more than a typical construction project with investigation work continuing and distribution solutions being designed while others are implemented. Early involvement of our development and site teams ensures inter-disciplinary design checks are embedded from the very earliest stages to deliver an integrated service across all phases of the energy’s journey from generation to the consumer.
“I was particularly impressed by the way everybody worked together to achieve the result, nothing appeared too much trouble for anybody and where we did have problems these were resolved very quickly” Andy Martin Project Manager (Substations) Integrated Utility Supplies
Preparation is the key to success and we understand that bringing an energy upgrade solution into use does not necessarily happen at the end of a project. Right from the development phases, we identify where you may need partial handback to project partners and plan our operational phases accordingly. Our transition programmes ensure that we provide you with a seamless service through design, commissioning and progressive handover.
Professional Solutions for Uninterrupted Services
When working in operational industrial facilities and in the wider public realm, we understand that continued and uninterrupted services are of the utmost priority and we ensure that your customers’ needs are at the heart of our service-led design and construct solutions. From a new substation to a power upgrade for a high demand development, by understanding your requirements, our integrated data systems will provide clear and accessible information to ensure your project is delivered with a high confidence of cost and time predictability.
Through our specialist design and installation teams we are able to work with you to identify service led solutions that provide reliability and resilience of our supply upgrade solutions. By gathering the best organisations into committed teams we will work closely with you to demonstrate continuous improvements in delivery whilst maintaining high levels of reliability and minimising disruption to all stakeholders.
“Excellent works completed over last few days at Clapham, all works ahead of schedule and we have even found time to safely assist our colleagues on an adjacent site by lifting in equipment for them, truly excellent teamwork here guys and high quality product that we are all proud of.” Mike Sandy, Programme Manager Network Rail
Our energy partnerships are having a positive impact on the communities in which we work and place great emphasis on partnerships that extend to the local community. We are committed to supporting the employment of local people and businesses and to creating positive employment opportunities across different communities and groups; from young people, to long-term unemployed and under-represented groups, and social enterprise organisations in our supply chain.
Energy Partnerships that benefit our Communities
Our proactive approach in understanding who will be impacted by your proposed project and how, is always at the forefront of our thinking in the development and implementation of our service led solutions. We will work with you in meeting your social objectives, including your localism issues and sustainability requirements.
Through our existing partnerships we are experienced in developing comprehensive plans in consultation with local residents groups for bespoke investment with community engagement activities that provide:
- Educational employment opportunities
- Individual skills and technology development opportunities
- Income creation schemes
- Waste elimination
- Energy use and carbon reduction
- Environmental protection and enhancement
“Ascham Homes are delighted that work has commenced on the AEP. I am thrilled that we are building on last year’s award winning green initiatives with the AEP. We have calculated that the work carried out to the 88 flats so far will save approximately 1520 tonnes of carbon. The Partnership will bring millions of pounds into the Borough to deliver energy initiatives and jobs for Waltham Forest residents. The current economic climate means that we are all ‘feeling the pinch’ in paying household bills and this investment will provide help where it is needed most for our residents.” Jo Murphy, Deputy Chief, Ascham Homes
Safety, quality, programme, cost; we recognise there are many factors that impact on you and your customers in the development, implementation and operation of your energy generation schemes. Each project presents a unique set of requirements which is why we tailor our flexible service to working with you and your stakeholders to collaboratively develop and build solutions with a clear understanding of your needs.
Integrated Services across Energy Journey
For even the most complex multi-discipline energy generation scheme you can be sure of our commitment to working with you to provide the best solutions for your customers in a safe, convenient and efficient manner. From a full energy generation plant to solar panelled motorway information systems and multi-storey car park wind turbines, our bespoke and sustainable project strategies allow us to lead and coordinate with specialist technology suppliers to integrate the process works into our civil and structural packages.
Our development teams ensure inter-disciplinary design checks are embedded from the very earliest stages of the architectural and structural designs to prevent poor detailing and abortive works. Our joined-up processes allow us to deliver an integrated service across all phases of the energy’s journey from generation to the consumer, to ensure greater control and predictability of all deliverables.
“These projects have been an undoubted success: completed to budgets and within programmes with absolutely minimal disruption to the travelling public despite their complexities and difficulties…we have managed to reduce programme durations, with saving for all parties.” Nick Hopcraft, Highways Agency, M1 J24—30 Notts/Derby Communications Upgrade
