Case Studies

For more than 25 years, we have been assisting developers and construction companies across the UK including:

Barratt Homes, Balfour Beatty, Bellway, Persimmon, Taylor Wimpey, Willmott Dixon . . . and many more!

£319k Refunds on Completed Works
NRSWA reviewed documents in the archive of a major developer in southern England. Refunds were arranged totalling £319,679 on various utility works including gas, water, electricity and telecoms.

Upgrade of ‘A Road’ to Motorway
An ‘A road’ in northern England was upgraded to a motorway. This involved removing the roundabouts and junctions along the route, across which utility services needed to be diverted. NRSWA reviewed the costs and arranged refunds for our client.

£86k Refund and Substation Elimination
The construction of a new apartment block in London entailed proposals to install a new substation. NRSWA re-evaluated the scheme and eliminated the need for a substation. This resulted in a refund of £86,307 to our client plus it released the valuable area of land that would otherwise have been occupied by the substation.

£3k Rebate for Telecoms Connections
NRSWA identified an unclaimed rebate of £3,572 for telecoms connections. Accordingly, we liaised with the relevant departments to obtain payment for our client.

£14k Reduction on Water Charges
An ultra-modern university building featuring new laboratories for teaching and research incurred substantial charges for water supplies. NRSWA reviewed the charges and organised a reduction of £14,885 for our client.

£11k Refund on Gas Alterations
Regeneration of a rundown housing estate into 300+ high quality new homes necessitated the alteration of gas mains on which NRSWA arranged a refund of £11,004 for our client.

£14k Refund on Sewer Buildover Works
Regeneration of an area of London entailed building over a public sewer. CCTV surveys were carried out before and after construction to check the condition of the sewer, on which NRSWA organised a refund of £14,016.

£100k Refund on Electricity Undergrounding
The development of 400 homes in a rural area required 33kV overhead electricity cables supported on poles across fields to be re-laid underground with associated costs for new connections. NRSWA liaised with the relevant authorities resulting in a refund of £100,099.
