GTC Secures Stanton Cross Deal

The ‘Gas Transportation Company’ (GTC), a utilities infrastructure provider, has signed a deal to provide fibre networks, electricity and has to a Bovis Homes development in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.

The Stanton Cross site is a £900 million development of 144,000 m2 of commercial space and almost 4,000 homes.

GTC will make the connection of electricity from the main substation which is expected to serve all the planned commercial properties and homes.

The company will also install a second duct which will allow them to install a new, GTC owned, primary substation on site in order to provide for more homes if they were to go ahead.

Every home will be equipped with fibre optic cabling, with unlimited upload and download speeds, with no television aerial or satellite dish required.

GTC will also install FIRS, a fibre integrated reception system, which will allow digital and satellite television to be received through an aerial and community dish, while the television signal will be transmitted via the ‘fibre to the home’ network.

John Lougher, Land Director at Bovis Homes Group, said that technology is playing a more and more important role in our lives, in particular in our businesses and homes where super-fast internet connection and high speed fibre is in very high demand.

Lougher added: “We are delighted that future businesses and residents of Stanton Cross will benefit from this very latest technology by GTC.”

Meanwhile, Tom Brough, GTC Sales and Marketing Director, said: “It is crucial for GTC to be able to offer multi-utility solutions that will stand the test of time in order to benefit new communities for future decades.

He added: “It also makes a great deal of sense for house builders  to be able to obtain all essential utilities through one reliable provider in order to ensure new home completions are delivered on time and on budget.”
