Setting up multiple utilities for industrial developments is a complex process. With numerous utility companies to go through and multiple connection points involved, coordinating it all can be stressful, time-consuming and costly. It can also be rather frustrating when having to repeat the same steps over and over.

The solution for this is to use a multi-utility service provider, who will eliminate the hassle and eradicate the complications by offering a complete, all-in-one utility service from start to finish.

What Is a Multi-Utility Service Provider?

A multi-utility service provider is an Independent Connection Provider (ICP) who supplies an all-inclusive solution to consumers that rolls gas, electricity and water into a single, full-service package. Whether you’re working on a commercial or residential project, having one company to manage all of your utilities offers many benefits for property developers, including:


  • A one-stop solution


All areas of utilities will be covered via an integrated package, tailormade to your requirements. By avoiding the usual route of having to deal with several companies for different utilities on the same project, you will massively streamline your operation and give yourself more time to focus on the job at hand.


  • Quicker completion


Any developer knows that dealing with land ownership rights when setting up infrastructure is a time-consuming process. Associated legal work with land and access rights for utility infrastructure is a common cause of delay because it usually involves councils, statutory bodies, landowners, solicitors and other third parties.

Procuring water, gas and electricity through one provider reduces the level of paperwork involved. Having all of your utilities through one provider will speed things up and enable you to meet tight deadlines, resulting in significant time and cost savings.


  • Single point of contact


A single service provider handles the entire connection process from start to finish. They will directly install, plan and coordinate works with the incumbent network owners to carry out a seamless installation service while providing regular updates throughout the process.

A multi-utility service provider will also manage any on-site issues and ensure they’re resolved promptly and professionally. That way, they can assess the requirements of your project, evaluate design and build options, and understand costs and timescales. As a developer, this gives you a clearer picture of completion dates without having to contact multiple companies.


  • Cost-effective solution


Multi-utility providers can make the connection for multiple networks via the same trench. Most companies have a dedicated team to make sure the connections are installed and routed in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. Your provider only needs to go through the designing, planning and installation process one time, cutting down both the time and money involved, and allowing them to focus on quality over quantity. You can also rest assured that your project is compliant with the standards and guidelines outlined by the authorities.
