Decommission Utilities Ready for Demolition
If a building is unoccupied for a long period of time, it’s likely that it will be scheduled for demolition to make way for new housing or offices. Before it can be completed, Crown Energy can decommission the utilities to ensure it’s safe for the building to be knocked down. To discuss any requirements regarding utility disconnection, get in touch on 0330 123 2255.
If a property is being demolished, it’s likely that a multi-utility disconnection is required to ensure the safety of everyone around. At Crown Energy we take the responsibility of the disconnection process, from identifying and contacting the energy providers and starting the process of having the supply disconnected and the relevant metering equipment removed.
What’s involved in utility disconnections?
Before performing a disconnection, we will need the following information:
- Full site address
- MPAN or MPRN numbers (these can be found on the bill of the utility concerned)
- Plan of the site that clearly shows the building that requires a disconnection
- Contact details of the demolition provider
If the gas, water or electricity is shared with another property, we will need to perform a site investigation to determine what work will need to be undertaken and how long it will take.
In many cases, the metering equipment is owned by the energy provider, so they may wish to remove the meters themselves so it can be used again on another property.
All gas meters must be removed first so when the disconnection is complete the contractor carrying out the works can fully purge out any gas that may be left inside the pipe works that are still underground. We will liaise with the providers and offer dates for when they are able to remove the equipment.
At Crown Energy, we manage all types of gas disconnections from start to finish to save you the worry of dealing with third parties to bring the entire process togetherFind out More

Completed Utility Disconnection
Once the work has been completed, we will provide a disconnection/termination certificate that has been authorised by the team that carried out the work. If any excavations have taken place, they will be filled and compacted on the property. If they have taken place on the public boundary, they can be completed several days later, as this will not hinder the demolition process.
If there is a requirement for utilities after the demolition has been completed, Crown Energy can disconnect gas, electric and water for a set period of time (up to 12 months). Then, if a new structure is set to replace the existing one, we can reconnect each utility as and when it’s required.
Temporary disconnection of all three utility services (gas, water and electric) can save time and money when it’s time to reconnect. This will all depend on the original disconnected material. Some old materials cannot be reconnected to due to age or not compliant anymore.
For both water and electricity, Crown Energy can offer temporary builder’s supply onsite during the building process.
