Utility searches have been our service for nearly 15 years. In that time, we have completed over 50,000 full searches and handled well over 500,000 plans. We have been successful through the systems and processes we have built and our clients depend on us as they do not have the capacity or desire to handle the administrative burden that comes with ordering multiple plans from multiple providers.

For the last 3 years, we have also been lightening the administrative burden in other tasks. For instance, a number of our utility contractors need to apply for road opening licenses from the local Council. Lots of our clients are developers and need help with understanding whether the local utility networks have enough capacity to support their new development, obtain new connection and diversion costs.
