Premier Energy’s utility assessment and comprehensive site investigation reports for anyone involved in the purchase or development of land wanting to understand the impact of utilities on their proposals.

Utility Assessment

  • Our entry-level cost report based on desktop analysis of utility asset maps and our many years of experience. Available nationwide.
  • We will obtain utility asset maps of the existing infrastructure at the proposed development (C2 under NRSWA, Quality Level D (QL-D) under BSI’s PAS 128:2014 Specification for Underground Utility Detection, Verification and Location).
  • We will provide a summarised report, providing estimated budget costs, in relation to existing plant, disconnections, diversions and new mains/connections, making comments where necessary and identifying further areas of investigation.

Site Investigation

  • A comprehensive cost report based on utility capacity responses, enhanced with our detailed commentary and a site verification visit.
  • Available primarily in our core consultancy region of London & the South East, although sites outside this area will be considered.
  • Includes the Utility Assessment scope as above, plus:
    • We will apply to the utility companies to ascertain each utility’s ability to serve the site including their on-site budget, off-site reinforcement, diversion (C3 under NRSWA) and disconnection costs, if available and where applicable.
    • We will visit the site to look for visible signs of the existing network, service routes and utility plant. Photos from the survey will be included in the report (where relevant).
  • We exclude capacity investigation and diversion issues relating to foul drainage and surface water as standard but this can be included as an optional extra at additional cost.

Site Investigation Project Support
