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

I can confirm that we have worked with UCML on a number of affordable housing projects over the last few years in Liverpool and Chester. They have performed consistently well in dealing with difficult service disconnection issues, keeping all members of the delivery team informed on all matters. The Company’s professional approach and eagerness to question technical and cost information provided by the statutory authorities has been an asset to the projects.

We have no hesitation in recommending them for future developments of all types.

We have made use of the services offered by UCML for many years, on the development of our award winning, retirement village schemes. During this time UCML have provided an efficient, professional service, which has resulted, through their detailed knowledge, in contract savings and improved programming. Their friendly, positive approach is a real benefit and makes them a pleasure to work with.

Property Manager, Retirement Village 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.
