Design, build and engineering

Utilligence’s design and construction expertise in both DCOs and NSIPs (Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects) means that we can always find the right solution, however challenging your site or installation.

We offer a comprehensive design service, from initial planning through to detailed design, and offer a range of both on and offsite construction options to deliver the most efficient solution, including prefabricated offsite builds that can help to reduce environmental impacts, accelerate delivery times and bolster safety by delivering fully tested housing and equipment to site that is fully connection ready. 

We meet all current guidelines for deploying environmentally-friendly solutions and continue to innovate in this space, in the move towards net zero.
