Water Connections (WIRS)
Water network design
As part of our water design process, we fully design and cost the water infrastructure to customer requirements, either as a standalone job or as part of a full multi-utility solution. We project manage the process, liaising with the developers, local authorities and the adopting water company to ensure connection and adoption of the assets is achieved on time and to budget. Following the rigorous national standards for design approval, inclusive of site surveys, audits and inspections, we produce approved water network designs.
To help reduce customer costs, our teams are also proficient in liaising with, and challenging the water authority on issues such as statutory water charges and any customer contributions that the water company require.
Building water networks
The installation of the full network infrastructure of water mains and services by UKPS includes excavation, backfilling and reinstatement.
After the installation process, our teams undertake the commissioning processes of pressure testing, disinfection and final connection to the live water network, prior to transferring the new water assets to the regional water authority.
We liaise with the Fire Authority to establish their hydrant requirements as part of our design and installation processes. When requested, we install the fire hydrants and arrange their transfer to the Fire Authority on completion.
Service connections and water meters
UKPS can also provide support with fitting water meters. Our technical capability in water connections means that we can install the service connections and meters to your build programme, dependent on your local water company’s preference.
After the installation process, our teams undertake testing, chlorination, flushing and final charge with your potable water, we then transfer the water network assets to the regional water authority.
