What we do
We maintain vital infrastructure so that utility networks operate smoothly. In a nutshell, this means making sure that you have access to ultrafast broadband, your home, office or business is heated, the power is working and you have a quality supply of water.
Creating better utilities
We help by:
- Having people in the right place at the right time – so you never have to wait too long
- Being flexible – so we can be there for you when you need us
- Being diligent – so we meet regulatory standards
- Being innovative and forward-looking – so we leave a positive impact for future generations
We help to make sure your clean and waste water has a smooth journey to and from your home or business. Doing this safely and effectively - while protecting our environment along the way - is a priority for us.
That means helping with leakage detection, repairing and upgrading water networks; helping to maintain and upgrade sewer networks; and designing, installing and maintaining water treatment works.
