Gas & Water

We work in the UK and internationally to support vital gas and water networks.

Working on long-term, large-scale contracts, we build close, collaborative relationships with our customers.

Our in-house teams offer technical knowledge and in-depth industry experience. We provide exceptional customer service and innovative approaches to minimise disruption to local residents, businesses and the environment.

Our water operations cover the whole lifecycle of networks. This includes clean and waste water mains, metering and treatment facilities. Working closely with our supply chain, we employ industry-leading approaches like BIM and offsite construction to ensure cost and time efficiencies.

In the gas sector, we work to expand and renew underground mains, often in busy and high-impact residential and commercial areas. We work closely with customers to manage and plan work intelligently in these areas, minimising the impact this essential work has on local communities.

We have experience and expertise across the full spectrum of the electricity grid, including overhead lines, cable tunnels and distribution networks. Our services support a reliable and safe supply of power flowing to millions of homes and businesses around the world.
