Overview

Civil Engineering in the energy sector covers a broad range of requirements, from the construction of substations to the laying of underground high pressure oil pipelines across environmentally sensitive areas. Today, Dyer & Butler’s customers in the energy sector are improving facilities to make their services more efficient and cleaner in operation. Our work embraces both new and refurbishment work to help improve customers’ engineered assets and increase asset working lifespan.

Why Dyer & Butler

Successful civil engineering in the energy sector requires a total dedication to safety in all of the aspects of a project’s activity. For Dyer & Butler, this dedication to safety embraces our culture and day to day behaviour. Like our customers in the gas, water, electricity and liquid fuel sectors, we value our environment, and as a safe and considerate constructor, practice extreme care when dealing with potentially hazardous materials. It’s part of our safety culture.

As a multi-disciplined civil contractor, Dyer & Butler offers a broad range of services to the energy and utilities sector. Our work is supported by an established reputation for on-time and to budget programme delivery in all sectors of our expertise including the energy sector.

An additional feature of our business lies with our understanding of availability and development of sector materials and their procurement. As a result, we are frequently able to propose alternative solutions for those already specified for project completion. This forms part of our Value Engineering approach towards all projects, and in some cases can provide significant savings against initial forecasts. This approach is illustrated across a selection of case studies published within this website. We work with and have completed many successful projects in the sector and hold framework agreements with the National Grid.
