Don’t be fooled by expensive utility searching. Despite further deregulation advances in the technology decreases the time it takes a searching company to complete the task.
It is though, still complicated with the ever-increasing numbers of independent companies and changes in ownership and responsibilities. Office closures and outsourcing makes for an even more complicated environment. Even the guidance (HSG47 and PAS 128) suggest that clients should use an experienced one call service because of these complexities.
It is all a double-edged sword but data and knowledge is more and more accessible so it doesn’t need to be as expensive as it has been. Apogee draws on 25 years in utilities and strikes the right balance to ensure that its client’s can cost effectively meet their needs.
