Through our Living Utilities business, STRACON is finding better ways to source, deliver and manage resources while improving economic and environmental outcomes on our projects.

Our water, energy and fibre solutions help create the best places for people to live and work in. Our expertise contributes to smart utility solutions for property developments, urban regeneration projects, masterplanned communities, residential, commercial and retail mixed use.

In planning and delivering services, Living Utilities looks at the entire water cycle which lets us discover fresh ways to link different elements to optimise water usage. Whether it’s a recycled water plant or an irrigation system for public spaces, every aspect is designed to deliver long-term benefits to developers, investors and users.

Our water solutions incorporate innovative systems that:

1. Conserve high quality drinking (potable) water.

2. Produce fit-for-purpose recycled water for things like watering gardens, flushing toilets and washing clothes.

3. Irrigate parks, gardens and sports fields to help improve the environment and foster a collective sense of well-being.

4. Maintain healthy waterways for the enjoyment and health of people, as well as local fauna and flora.

5. Support the economic needs of residents and businesses with efficient, affordable and reliable water services.

When it comes to energy, smart and innovative solutions that support energy productivity are critical to realising the economic and sustainability benefits from any energy infrastructure investments. Living Utilities looks for tailored solutions that tick all the boxes for investors, business and consumers: sustainable, smart, economically viable and capable of delivering ongoing returns.

Living Utilities can offer expert assistance at every stage of the development process including:

1. Reducing headworks costs through better solutions such as behind-the-meter generation, better procurement and capital deferment with incumbent utilities for ‘business as usual’ solutions.

2. Assessing the best solutions for energy delivery and management, such as renewable energy like solar photovoltaic (PV) and waste-to-energy systems.

3. Exploring opportunities for integrating new technologies as they come online, such as battery storage that can dramatically increase the effectiveness of distributed generation.

Living Utilities can also help create methodologies to assess and tailor energy solutions to meet future consumer demands, as well as advise on strategies to meet sustainability targets such as Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions, energy-efficient building materials, and initiatives and transport issues.

As the demand for new technology increases at an ever more rapid rate, today’s places need infrastructure and utilities that can scale and transform to meet it. This is most apparent when it comes to the provision of ultra-high speed network connectivity. By engaging in the strategic procurement and deployment of fibre to the premises (FTTP) networks and intelligent grids, Living Utilities can offer a chance to stay ahead of the curve delivering best-in-class facilities, reducing capital expenditure and leveraging potential new sources of revenue.

Living Utilities fibre solutions can:

1. Be efficient and sustainable without the need to construct a complex copper network.

2. Offer some of the fastest ultra high-speed internet in Pakistan.

3. Support a clean roof policy with TV delivered via fibre.

4. Offer a compelling point of difference for your project.

5. Help realize our goal of creating the best places to live and work in.

What We Do

Assessment

As one of the core focuses of our services, STRACON provides detailed and accurate information related to the condition of existing facilities. Each assessment we provide is different and customized to the unique needs of the facility and community in which a project is located. Typically we will provide an analysis of code compliance, an analysis of how well the existing infrastructure supports desired programming, an opinion as to the lifecycle of existing infrastructure, and an opinion of construction costs to achieve the desired results. An accurate assessment can help pave the way for decisions related to renovations, replacements, additions, or new construction.

Planning

One of the most important steps in any process is to have an accurate and extensive plan for the goals of the project. STRACON strives to provide an in-depth analysis tailored specifically to the needs of each project we undertake. From city-wide aquatic master and business plans to feasibility studies for additions to existing facilities we are experts at providing the information needed to gain City Council, School Board, Board of Directors, or Owner approval as well as to acquire funding sources needed for construction.

Design

Our core competency and strength is the quality of our documents. We take great pride in the fact that many contractors have commented that STRACON has the competitive plans in the industry. Our design package includes pool layouts and sections, mechanical and chemical systems, details, and deck plans. With multiple licensed architects on staff we are capable of producing the most complete and detailed package in our industry.

Engineering

The most important component of any aquatic project is the engineering behind it. Our engineers have decades of experience and have encountered almost any question or dilemma possible in the world we practice. From high water tables and expansive soils, to complex pump curves and hydraulics, to investigative diagnostics of existing conditions our engineers are well prepared to tackle any challenge.

Construction Administration

An often overlooked but critically important component of our services is construction administration. In addition to our project managers who stay with a project from conception past completion, our construction administration experts are former pool contractors with over twenty years of experience. This experience helps them understand exactly what contractors are doing in the field and are an invaluable resource for ensuring that our designs are built per plan and specifications. Their experience also helps deal with any unknown or unexpected issues that occur in the field and cannot be foreseen during design.
