Planning & Design

A full planning and design service is offered by USL Group for all aspects of telecommunications network engineering covering both the existing copper infrastructure and the ever expanding super fast broadband network.

With a highly experienced team of fully qualified and accredited survey officers USL Group have the unique ability to be able to offer a solution to any problem, either overhead or underground, alongside our line of sight broadband (wireless) solutions for those more difficult to access locations.

From initial site survey to receipt of the completed engineering proposal our team are on hand to offer advice and support to ensure that the project gets started off on the right foot.

Emergency Safety Works

Part of the service that USL offer to their clients is a full 24 hrs, 365 days a year safety response.

Our engineering teams are on standby to offer an immediate response, whatever the weather, whatever the location.

This includes attending the scenes of road traffic collisions where telecommunications plant has been damaged and ensuring that the site is left in a safe condition, and the plant is repaired/renewed to ensure that affected customers are brought back into service as quickly as possible.

We can arrange a full traffic management solution for emergency works to ensure that the tasks are always carried out safely, and correctly at the first time of asking.

Overhead Safety Programme

USL work on behalf of Openreach as part of a major safety framework contract, upgrading and maintaining the existing telecommunications network. The main focus of this contract is to ensure the safety and integrity of the network.

This involves the renewal of telegraph poles that have been tested by Openreach and classified as ‘D’ for defective. Nationally, USL renew in excess of 10,000 poles annually for this reason alone, in a variety of locations from the roadside works to some of the most remote terrain in the United Kingdom.

This project runs alongside an existing low wire programme, designed to ensure that at all times Openreach can maintain the height requirements for all of their plant that crosses any carriageway. This is a continual programme that offers it’s own challenges, particularly when carriageways are built or amended as part of a new development.
