Small enough to care, large enough to deliver
Cost Saving

Cost Saving

After receiving a new quotation for an electricity supply to a retail store our technicians realised the DNO had not apportioned the costs correctly.

Woodburn Utilities contacted the DNO and the correction was duly made, resulting in a quotation reduction from £82k to £27k.

Total savings of £55k.

We were approached by a leading retailer in order to take over a new supply order as the DNO was providing a quote of circa £1M.

Without sufficient experience the retailer was struggling to negotiate a better deal.

After being passed to us, we at Woodburn Utilities were able to re-design the plans for connection enabling us to negotiate a better deal, reducing the overall cost to £100k.

The client was kept involved throughout the process and was extremely happy with both the time and money saved on this issue.

Water Investigation

Water Investigation

After identifying a leak within a client’s property, we instigated an investigation from the water supplier in order to resolve this issue.

During this process we identified that the client’s water meter had been incorrectly connected as a shared connection to residential properties, we promptly highlighted this to the water supplier who then worked with us to resolve the leak and reconfigure the meter connection.

The client was awarded with full compensation for the time they had been with the supplier.

Wayleave Negotiation

Wayleave Negotiation

Our Client were looking at an approx. cost £100k for the relocation of 2 high voltage cables running across the site.

After investigation it was confirmed that the supplier did not hold any wayleave/servitude rights over the cables.

Woodburn Utilities served notice to the supplier and the cables are currently being relocated at no cost to our client.

Time Saving

Time Saving

When a client forgot to apply for the disconnection of the temporary supply feeding the site cabinets during construction and the store was due to open in 2 weeks.

We were contacted and asked for help. Using relationships with the DNO a quotation was issued the same day as the application, the payment was fast tracked through the system and the supply was disconnected 2 days before the store opened.

Compensation Claim

Compensation Claim

Due to a leading water supplier failing to adhere to the agreed program of works the store opening was delayed by 4 months resulting in £30k of additional costs.

Through negotiation Woodburn Utilities have reclaimed £20k costs back from the supplier.

  • Having worked with Woodburn Utilities since its inception we remain as committed to employing their services as we are impressed with the service we receive. We are a multi-disciplined company with demolition projects being a core element of our business and as such rely on external expertise to co-ordinate and effect utility service disconnections that are normally critical to both a project start and the health and safety of our personnel.

    Woodburn Utilities are proven to be a client oriented, efficient and responsible company we highly recommend.

  • When we bought an old building with the view to renovate into 5 flats with 5 shops below we didn’t take into consideration the mine field you enter when trying to get the utilities installed. Woodburn Utilities were recommended by a colleague who had used them previously. Once they were on board they advised what would be required, arranged all the quotations and managed it through to completion. Very impressed with the work carried out and could not have done it without them.

  • When I approached Woodburn Utilities they took all of my issues on board and came back with speedy results at a fraction of the price originally quoted from the supplier directly. The service was excellent from start to finish, the communication was effective and extremely efficient, allowing progress.

    They offer optimum customer service every time and get the job done on time.
