Utility Installations

KTA boasts vast utility experience for this ‘industry within an industry’, and has a dedicated team specialising solely in the provision of utilities and infrastructure.

Specialisms include the provision of all utilities to over 20,000,000 sq ft of developments, service provision from up to 20km to sites, individual developments over 500 hectares, dedicated 132/11kv primary sub-stations and IP/MP gas provisions, coordination on and off site for services, distribution, centralised sprinkler and hydrant water supplies and borehole installations.

Magna Park Lutterworth

The largest dedicated distribution park in Europe, complete with central sprinkler and private sewage treatment. KTA handled all services connections from up to 20km away.

There is an ongoing extension of the park to provide Magna Park North and South with over 8,000,000 sq ft of new distribution facilities and logistics academy. We were instrumental in providing a new primary substation and securing a 24MVA supply for the developer.

To unlock the development, there were a host of services diversions on the A5 and a realignment of Mere Lane. We were responsible for arranging the diversions, all of which were in proximity to a Cadent HP gas main.
