About Utility Source

In 2018 we launched Utility Source; a family business proudly based in South Yorkshire.

The business was founded by Dean Pattison, an industry specialist for over 20 years, with a specific focus to support and educate builders, developers and property investors on the complex nature of the utilities process.  As the business developed, so did our skillset with several additional advisors joining the team to provide a wider outlook and service.  Everybody has a story to tell which has resulted in a negative experience when it comes to utility installations and we believe that it is our role to unravel the industry to improve your experience.

Our Services

Our experience of working with different types of customers on all kinds of development projects highlights that they need support beyond the installation of gas, water and electric. There are many administrative requirements which are often not recognised until a late stage and the long lead times which our industry dictates can generate both delay and additional costs.  We have continued to develop our knowledge and expertise to recognise the important pivot points, highlight them to our customers and to offer the necessary solutions.  

Pre Development Assessment

We conduct a comprehensive pre-development assessment of local utilities for potential land purchases. This review, available as a desktop or on-site study, identifies utility considerations and safeguards investments. Ideally, pre-purchase informs budgeting and remains flexible for any project stage. Feedback underscores its critical role in informed decisions, building feasibility, and determining land prices. Understanding commercial implications and accessing existing infrastructure plans is pivotal for secure excavation and Health and safety readiness.

Utility Packages

With our network of contacts and industry knowledge we have the experience to prepare utility packages for our clients.  We a significant understanding of the principles of Competition in Connections which puts us in a position to offer the most appropriate and cost effective solution for your project.

We will explain the relevant process at the point of contact and will confirm any quotation costs and the associated timescales to support your understanding of what we do.

Partnerships with other industry specialists enable us to support your new energy procurement.

We can arrange a commercial electricity or gas contract and offer the on-going management of the contract with the chosen supplier.  We can also provide solutions for domestic metering requirements.

Bt Openreach Registrations

Since December 2022 it has been a requirement to demonstrate that a connection to a gigabit-capable public electronic communication network is possible on new dwellings.  This is delivered in Part R of Schedule 1 to the Building Regulations 2010.  We regularly complete registrations on behalf of developers which opens the door to discharging such planning conditions.

Commercial Cleaning

Maintaining a spotless and inviting environment for homeowners and tenants isn’t just a preference; it’s a strategic imperative that can wield a significant influence on your brand’s image and customer perception. Our team is now poised to offer driveway and tarmac cleaning, high-pressure jetting, and all aspects of builders cleans.  These services are essential as you enter the handover stage of your development.

Working with our industry contacts we can provide the resource to complete the test and chlorination of water mains pipework.  This is followed by the issue of laboratory test results to enable connections to take place.

Our administrative experience allows us to support you further by interpreting your drainage design which in turn enables the submission of the drainage connection applications.  These applications are a necessity on any new development, and we can complete them on your behalf.

Utility Source are very good and it takes a load off my plate using them to help. You see this property stuff has very little to do with the buildings - its all about the people.

A very efficient and painless process from a clients point of view. Very happy, very impressed, was surprised how quick and easy it was. I highly recommend Dean and his team.

Adam Mitchell

Mitchell Harworth Limited

Utility Source have been a great help ensuring we were able to gain timely utility connections on a new build project near Harrogate. We found their knowledge and experience was excellent and it really helped us overcome a critical part of the build and saved us money. Utility Source are a pleasure to work with, sharing their knowledge to make our business more successful. We cannot recommend Utility Source highly enough to anyone who is planning a new project, stuck in an existing one or who just wants some guidance on how to work with utility companies.
