Pre-Development (Capacity Check)

Capacity checks for property developments

As well as underground utility searches, we also offer a service to assess whether the relevant water, sewer, electric and gas companies (you can select which) have sufficient existing local network capacity for the loads generated by your new or proposed development. This information can be vital in ensuring the proposed development is viable in the early pre-planning stages. Some utilities also provide a budget estimate as part of their pre-development check: – we will supply these costs wherever possible.

Knowing the whereabouts of buried plant, such as those owned by Scottish Water, will help to avoid potentially expensive damage to any existing underground plant.This includes locating buried utilities such as electricity cables, gas pipes, sewers, water mains, and so on. Identifying these prior to any building works will minimise needing to pay for repairs to the plant, and will prevent additional delays and disruptions to the work. It will also ensure building contractors are compliant with HSE regulations and that workers are protected.
