Dealing with multiple statutory utilities companies for water, gas, electric and telecom connections can be nothing but a headache at any stage of a project, especially as you’re usually resigned to having to chase them to get things done. Co-ordinating this many companies solely to get utilities installed is a drain on valuable management time and, in this tough climate, is also unnecessary.
