Pivotal Energy has been successfully operating in the utilities installation business for over 7 years.
In February 2011 Clive Coverson and Brian Popplestone founded Pivotal Energy to initially operate installing gas mains, services and meters to new industrial, commercial and domestic properties.
During the following two years Pivotal Energy started installing electricity and water to suitable developments and this is now an integral part of the business.
Pivotal Energy sub contract the physical installation works and then project manage all aspects of the installation to ensure coordination of the various utility works.
Following the initial contact with the customer to ascertain the exact requirements for the development Pivotal develop the initial operational design. This design takes a holistic approach ensuring that the customer’s overall project is the most important factor. From that design the appropriate commercial solution is created and subsequently a fixed price quotation for the complete utility works is produced.
On acceptance of the quotation a dedicated project manager, who was also involved in the initial investigation, assessment and quotation, is appointed as the customer’s single point of contact.
This project manager will then manage the installation of the utilities from the formal design to the completed installation and both operational and project closedown.
