We will need the following information in order to provide a quote;
On receipt of all information required to enable a quote to be issued, typical timescales are 6-8 weeks. This enables points of connection to be applied for to confirm connection positions.
Typically this is 7-8 weeks but will be dependent upon all information being received for design approval at contract award and first payment being received.
Aptus are approved to fit gas and water domestic meters (depending on the water company region) on new development sites.
If gas services are connected to existing mains not new mains then we do not fit the gas meters.
We do not fit electric meters, but we will liaise with meter suppliers to organise electric meter fit dates in line with service connection works.
We do not fit commercial gas or water meters.
We provide a one-stop-shop for gas, water and electric services on your development which often provides time and cost-saving solutions.
We are experienced in dealing with different statutory organisations to facilitate connections.
We have a co-ordinated approach to installation of utilities; one team will install gas, water and electric mains and services.
The only additional costs you will see are if there is a material change to the design of the site or the agreed quote parameters.
This is not necessarily true for single connections as Aptus Utilities have to incur additional costs that the statutory undertakers do not have that have to be covered in our quote, for example highways notices. What you will receive is a one-stop-shop for co-ordination and management of the service co-ordinations and removal of the ‘hassle factor’ associated with service connections
