What is utilities installation?

Utilities installation relates to the integration of essential services to a commercial or residential site, including:

  • Water main installation
  • Gas service installation
  • Underground water line installation
  • Electrical service installation
  • Telecommunications installation (also known as BT) - for phone line and internet as well as electric gates, CCTV and intercoms, where applicable

Services installation is required when a brand new site or building is under development. In addition, utilities installation, re–routing or diversion may be necessary when an existing site is being extended, improved or modernised.

What services installation groundworks do we offer?

Ahead of utilities installation we carry out the associated groundworks to prepare both commercial and residential sites. Our services installation preparation works include:

  • Initial site surveys
  • Excavation
  • Exposure of existing service trenches for re-routing works
  • Trench preparation service and ducting installation
  • Laying appropriate pipes for each service
  • Access point installation, inc manhole covers
  • Backfilling and compaction
  • Land reinstatement and landscaping

Our competent family-run team will liaise with the relevant utilities providers to prepare the site in advance of the installation. Once the services have been commissioned by the relevant providers, we will return to reinstate the ground.

As with all of our services, we adhere to industry safety standards as well as local regulations and specific requirements outlined by the utility suppliers.

Services Installation Projects

We are pleased to have provided utilities preparation groundworks on the following projects:


Car Design Centre, Surrey

Carrying out utilities diversion from building to building across site. This saw us create new service trenches through existing tarmac, supply and install ducting and reinstate in new tarmac to match existing.


Ascot Racecourse

To support the racecourse’s future plans for development, we installed over 300m2 of utilities ducting across site. This allowed access to install further services in the future without the need for excavation of critical areas.


St George’s Hill, Weybridge

We installed service ducting as part of the utilities section for a stunning, contemporary new build at prestigious St George’s Hill. This customer needed essential services to run into their home, garage and gates.
