Utility Telecoms


RPS has extensive knowledge and experience in facilitating the process of delivering Utility Telecoms and IT Infrastructure to developments.

Our service starts at the early inception of projects establishing what existing networks are available and liaison with the relevant local authorities for the site.

Thereafter we design and assist in the procurement of the containment systems and infrastructure to the development site including the onsite liaison and monitoring up to and including the handover of the project.

The deployment of our resources often depends on the working environment and nature of the investigation required. Our teams have experience of providing surveys for installations of new 3G masts, communication towers and associated plant. We have the ability to support multiple sites with fast turnaround of recorded data.
