Surge in demand for utility searches – Is this the start of the economic upturn?

Powersave Direct have experienced a massive surge in demand for utility searches and budget costing reports and feel that this could well be the start of the economic upturn following the credit crunch.

Over the last week, Powersave Direct have had new projects in from Extracare, Evans Homes and Gladman Homes, whereby we are undertaking utility searches to determine the location of existing utility apparatus surrounding or encompassing on a site and also obtaining budget quotations for any new incoming supplies and potential diversions. Managing Director, Mandie Brown commented, “This first class service we provide enables the viability of a site in terms of the utility connections to be thoroughly assessed by our clients. It is vital to determine budget costings at a pre-tender stage so that there are no shocks in store at a later period in the project. I strongly feel that the increased level of interest we have had in this area of our operation of late signals the start of the economic upturn as it is clear that many developers are beginning to consider new projects again.”
