The old LNER club is a social club which is based in Rotherham, just a stones-throw away from the Utility Source head office. The developer had purchased the club with a plan to convert it into commercial retail space however he also had a commitment to build a new club for its members within the grounds of the old car park.
We were fortunate enough to have been introduced to the developer by an existing customer and following a period of consultation, he went on to appoint Utility Source to coordinate the utility installations.
Throughout the project we encountered several challenges where our experience and network of contacts became essential in enabling solutions to materialise.
Coordination activity included the installation of a gas service and a new meter. When excavating to enable the connection, it was identified that the main which was digitised on network maps was not laid in the correct location, it was in fact outside of the site boundary within the grounds of a large factory which prevented the team from connecting to it.
A series of meetings with Cadent Gas were facilitated by Utility Source to identify a suitable and alternative connection point. The connection point agreed sat in the car park of the grounds so a period of negotiation with the client took place to ensure that the correct permissions were granted to achieve the installation.
Whilst the installation offered challenges, the club opened on time and a wedding reception was held on the opening weekend!
