Making Connections

Our teams are fully competent in under-pressure connections  and will carry out all preparatory works for a fast and efficient service.

Live Connections

We keep your gas & water supply on…

Our expertise is making connections to live PE or metallic mains to maintain zero interruption to your customers’ gas or water supply.

Keeping You Connected

If you need a connection during the construction of a new pipeline, or retrospectively on an existing main to alter or extend your pipeline network without interrupting supply, we can help.

Our particular know-how is connecting onto polyethylene pipes using electrofusion saddles, whilst the pipes are pressurised. Our skills extend to metallic pipe systems with the provision of services for sizing of metallic pipes, production of hot tap or bolted tee connections and the related drilling services.

We are a GIRS registered company for non-routine complex connection off-takes, particularly skilled in gas utility street works and in the private sector. In the water sector, we are skilled in making connections to both trunk mains and to distribution mains; whether it is for a branch connection, with zero interruption of supply, or the provision of hydrants or air valve for retrospective connections to the pipeline network.

Our services include all preparatory works, installation of the saddle and drilling valves, together with welding, pressure testing and commissioning of the new connection.
