GTC Secures Agreement with Persimmon Homes for the Construction and Adoption of Water and Wastewater Networks

GTC and Persimmon Homes have agreed terms that will see GTC continue to build, own, and operate water networks, and own and operate wastewater networks, on behalf of all Persimmon Homes regional offices.

GTC was the first utility infrastructure provider to offer house builders, including Persimmon Homes, NAV water and waste networks in competition with the incumbent operators, providing a competitive, efficient, and customer-focused service to new home builders for the installation and ownership of water and wastewater networks.  In addition to offering homeowners a discounted water and sewerage price, GTC’s customer-centric approach ensured developers benefit from:

  • Clear, all-inclusive pricing, with no hidden charges
  • Phased adoption of sewerage network
  • No bonds, commuted sums, or additional property charges
  • Adoption of SUDS
  • Flexible all-inclusive design service
  • Optimisation of upstream connection for water and waste
  • Guaranteed standards of service for approvals, design, and sewerage adoption agreements
  • Delivered as part of a fully inclusive multi utility service
  • Single point of contact for project management, including construction and adoption
  • Single multi utility infrastructure call off via in-house scheduling teams
  • Comprehensive customer service and asset management teams for post-construction support
  • In-house UK-based customer service, billing, and engagement team for residents

Having grown its asset base to over a 1,000 secured NAV networks, including many sites with Persimmon Homes, GTC is looking forward to continuing to work with Persimmon’s regional offices throughout the country.

GTC will offer water and waste networks to Persimmon Homes as part of a fully costed multi utility service, with a simple ‘one stop shop’ approach to construction and asset adoption, and a clear, proven commercial arrangement that provides cost certainty, seamless delivery, and an overall confidence in successful project completion.

Gus Watt – Persimmon Homes, Group Director of Energy Networks said: “The longstanding relationship between our businesses continues to evolve and prosper as our shared vision for these key activities becomes increasingly important. Persimmon prioritises engaging with organisations who embrace our ambitions and drive change. Dynamic B2B relationships such as ours are integral to high-quality energy and utilities management, with the support and expertise provided to our regional teams and supply chain crucial.”

Tom Brough – GTC, Sales Director said: “GTC is delighted to have reached this agreement with Persimmon Homes.  Having been at the forefront of developing the competitive market for water and waste connections to new homes since 2010 we continue to push for greater choice and transparency in this important area of competition for our customers.  Continuing to work with all the Persimmon Homes offices is testament to the strong working relationships and close collaboration that has been built up over many years.”
