Utilising our insight, experience and vast regulatory knowledge, UCML can identify any potential issues that may have an impact on a project commercially, technically or financially. Engaging with design teams at project inception is the ideal scenario; however, we are often instructed by in-house technical teams needing additional support at all stages of a project.

What our clients say

UCML have greatly assisted us with the on-going regeneration of a large estate in Cheshire. The challenging topography, service locations and proximity of existing properties has meant that the knowledge and skills that UCML have brought to the project team have greatly increased the deliverability of our schemes in this area.

Additionally, UCML have been able to provide guidance and information on our potential development sites to ensure we have the most up-to-date information on the sites. This enabled us to evaluate the risks at an early stage and to ensure these risks are managed in an effective manner.

Project Manager, Housing Association

UCML were instrumental in achieving a successful outcome with regard to the extensive diversions and new infrastructure required on Phase 1 of our project. UCML’s management of the overall process, including obtaining and challenging quotations, resulted in cost savings and risk removal at critical points during our program.

They continue to assist us on a number of major projects, we consider them an integral member of our consultancy teams and their expertise has always proved to be of benefit to us.

Associate Director, National Property Developer

Since deregulation of the utility monopolies, we all thought that things were going to get much easier and we would all benefit,... how wrong we were...the utilities have since become wise to the market conditions they now face and continue to try every which way they can to claim as much money as they can from us and take what seems an ever increasing time to respond; delaying our projects and causing us hassle and complications we don’t need.

With UCML behind us, we are ever confident that we get the best possible result available to us, without having to divert our own time and attention to the minefield of regulations and rhetoric that appears to get ever more complex year on year.
