Infrastructure and Utilities

Making Britain work better

Whether you're working in general infrastructure, as one of our telecomms providers, in the energy sector or for our other utility providers - you're helping to build, deliver and maintain Britain's physical backbone. Infrastructure and utilities keep Britain working harder.

Naturally, you need high quality mapping and location data insights about tree growth, flooding, subsidence and other factors that will impact your planning, roll-out, and management of assets. If you want maximum efficiency, options for your land and better management of your facilities all-round, all year round - we can help with that.  For example...

See the way forward for networks

For LAs, telecoms networks, ISPs, and WISPs – line of sight network connectivity is a challenge. Ground surveys are costly; desk queries on data isn’t ideal, in rural areas especially.

Emapsite’s Line of Sight tool analyses the right data, with multiple query parameters, graphically showing full, partial, or nil line of sight for each query.

Health and safety needs currency

Multi-occupancy and multi-storey buildings are an asset-management challenge. Without the right data, you’ll get gaps in maintenance schedules – which is a big red flag for the HSE.

How do you stay on top of who's connected and where? Being innovative means finding the smart way to handle simple problems via emapsite's Query service.

Efficiency and consistency

The more contractors you have, the more risks you handle. The truth is, contractors WANT to work with consistent location data.

emapsite’s ContractorLink gives your contractors the ‘single version of truth’ for digital mapping, networks, addressing and underground assets - speeding your project up and bringing your costs and risks down.

Making your asset accessible

Do you need innovation at scale? If you’re handling some of the nation’s biggest infrastructure problems – you need innovation: brilliant ways of handling everyday location challenges.

We can deliver fast, reliable, instant access to the mapping data you need – into the field, up-to-date, handling any license challenges in the process.

It's more about value and better service

You probably have a licence for the world's most detailed topographic mapping, already. OS MasterMap and the accompanying addressing product AddressBase. The challenge is to make sure you, your colleagues and your sub-contractors can easily get hold of the mapping they need, in the right format, whenever they need it.

  • Have you ever had format issues with OS's mapping or location data?
  • Are licencing challenges slowing things down across your organisation?
  • Do you have problems sharing data with contractors quickly and easily?

We have a reputation for solving these problems and making your life easier. We provide location data technical support to many organisations across the UK, and our team is here to make sure you're getting the content you need, not paying for detail and data (and licencing challenges) you don't.

We'll help you get easy access to all the location data you need, and to share pre-licensed data with everyone who's entitled to use the mapping as one of your partners. This ensures there's no need to resort to less up to date, less accurate resources, so your business has continuous access to the added insight our data offers - the third dimension, the fourth dimension (i.e. vegetation/tree growth, heave subsidence, flood planning information etc.), and more...

Utility Essentials

​This report gives visibility of the 5 key services – Gas, Electric, Water, Sewage and British Telecom, supplied for areas of up to 25 hectares.

Product Details

The Essentials report is collated and delivered in 5 working days and is ideal for remote sites where only the main utilities providers are likely to be present or projects where the aim is merely to check the availability of the main utilities (water/sewer, gas, electric and BT) e.g. in the planning stages of a new development.

Due to the extensive nature of some searches and the number of utilities searched, it can happen that not all responses are received within the relevant timeframe. When this does occur your report will be delivered with all available content as requested, and a final report will be delivered as soon as the missing information has been received. Please note, a search of Vtesse Networks Ltd is not included in this report. If you require a Vtesse Networks Ltd search this is available through our Utility Singles Telecoms report.
