Aptus was contracted by Taylor Wimpey to deliver gas and electricity connections to 190 homes in Telford.
On site, there were constraints to overcome:
Firstly, Aptus ensured the smooth installation of a gas governor which took place over a three week period. The works required a separate notice from the council to work on the road space which Aptus arranged. Aptus installed 300 meters of 125mm medium pressure gas main to the site.
The second phase required Aptus to install a new electricity substation with two 450 meters x 300 high voltage cables to site connecting from Western Power Distribution. This phase took five weeks.
“For us, it’s all about getting the job done, managing the site’s conditions and constraints and making sure everything is carried out safely and on time.”
Both the gas governor and the substation were commissioned and energized before the first plot completions. Feedback during and following Aptus works were extremely positive.
