An infrastructure specialist providing a comprehensive service to the GAS industry

Forefront Utilities offers the complete utility solution with services including gas repair and replacement, maintenance, gas fitting, reinstatement and waste material recycling, along with specialist services such as flow stop, under pressure drilling and vacuum excavation.

We can also undertake new supplies and connections, meter installations and governor installations.

Forefront Utilities has been replacing ‘at risk’ gas mains for over 30 years. We work directly with North London Gas Alliance and Southern Gas Networks as well as working with other infrastructure businesses such as Skanska, Morrison Utility Services Limited, Bam Nuttall and many more. We replace all diameter pipe sizes and up to two bar in pressure.

London and the surrounding areas host the largest diameter gas mains anywhere in the UK – up to 48 inches. Forefront not only has the skills required to undertake this type of work, but we also have all the equipment necessary to safely conduct all mains replacement.

The potential for gas mains failures to lead to catastrophic consequences means operatives have to be highly qualified. As safety is our first priority, we ensure our gas operatives have full accreditation, which can take several years with regular re-certification thereafter as well as continual performance training and assessment.

All Forefront operatives are registered by Energy and Utility Skills, the Council and Industry Training Board and under the New Roads and Street Works Act. In addition, Forefront operates its own in-house training school, as well as offering training to external companies, this also helps emphasise the safety culture and commitment to quality that exists within our company.
