Utility Assessment

Premier Energy’s entry-level cost report for anyone involved in the purchase or development of land wanting to understand the utilities’ impact on their proposals.


A Utility Assessment identifies the constraints and estimated budget costs associated with existing and new utility infrastructure for sites up to 2 hectares. Developed as a cost-effective report to inform development budgeting and planning, it includes in house commentary for new connections, diversions and disconnections.

If you require formal capacity checks, or have a site larger than 2 hectares, please use our alternative Site Investigation product.
