The utility infrastructure has been designed with the capacity and flexibility to support the future stages of the development as it grows to welcome more occupiers, and the high voltage substation will also support the use of energy saving measures, such as smart grid technology, which will be used throughout the development.

Once installed, the electricity and gas infrastructure will be adopted by ESP under its existing asset adoption agreement with Fulcrum.

This is a significant project that is helping to set the standard for future industrial and commercial developments, and we've worked closely with our client to design a complete and future proofed multi-utility solution."
