WHO WE ARE

Our Mission

Our mission is to make heat networks the best they can be – for clients, for developments and for customers. We aim to ensure that heat networks deliver on their promise of providing affordable, low cost and reliable heating.

 

We will do this through a tightly codified management and quality assurance system that can be applied to all elements of new heat networks. This includes complete end-to-end  support from scheme inception and beyond hand over. 

 

Uniti is a unique coming together of sector leading technical skills with the knowledge and experience of managing heat networks for the long term. We help clients build heat networks that deliver not just today, but for years to come.

CORE VALUES:

For clients

Uniti works only for you the client to ensure you get the new development that works clients and their customers. And that means representing the clients’ interests at every stage from the design development through to hand over and beyond.

For developers

Our expert team provides the complete end to end support to minimise any issues on the development and to deliver the best heat network possible. With over 50 years of experience and sector leading knowledge and insights no one provides better technical support.

For customers

Heat networks that are badly designed, developed and delivered become long term management issues for clients. Uniti starts from this premise and works with clients to ensure that they deliver lower cost management and provide affordable, low cost and reliable heating for years to come.

Meet the leadership team
