To minimise cost and risk, a utility investigation should be complete prior to construction beginning.

Underground services such as gas, water, electricity, cable TV, telecoms etc. (known as utilities) can be a considerable cost or programme risk to any development, whether they be for utility diversion or new supplies. SCP can help clients understand what services currently exist, undertake feasibility design and manage works through to construction.

SCP will manage the diversion process for the client and coordinate with utility providers to reduce the risk of clashes and conflicts. This service minimises programme and delivery risks on the scheme and allows the contractor delivering the works to be more confident with their programming.

To undertake these works SCP can arrange and coordinate ground-penetrating radar, drainage and trial hole surveys (Vacuum Excavation), with their list of approved sub-contractors.
