Utilities engineering

Energy and utility infrastructure is an important aspect of any land development or masterplanning process. The present day utility services package has grown into a very open but demanding engineering discipline to provide a mechanism for bringing all aspects of development together.

Land development schemes today must embrace a dedicated approach to utility provisions to facilitate a quality approach to sustainable engineering. With significant legislative change in the energy and utility markets – and a need to deliver greater performance from increased levels of capital expenditure – the provision of utility and physical infrastructure has become a very complex discipline.

BuroHappold’s extensive worldwide experience of utility provision enables us to design the optimum utility infrastructure plant and apparatus configuration with due consideration for development phasing, sustainability and adoptable standards. We have experience of developments requiring the full range of utility services to meet the needs of the full spectrum of land development uses.

By maintaining a client focused relationship – and providing a single portal to a broad range of expert knowledge and competitive markets – we deliver maximum technical and financial benefits. This extends to our relationships with both land developers and utility providers, ensuring a winning end result.

Utility planning has a key role in providing best value, innovation and continuity through all development stages and delivering programme and cost advantages to our clients.
