Asset Adoption

BUUK adopts utility infrastructure networks across England, Scotland, and Wales.

We’ve been the market leader for 30 years, offering seamless solutions and highly competitive asset values for gas, electricity, fibre, water, wastewater, and heat utility infrastructure.

With a tried and tested business model, we adopt newly installed utility infrastructure networks and operate them in perpetuity – for an independent, long-term, secure, and reliable option in an ever-changing energy sector. We are also a Moody’s-rated investment-grade business, a globally trusted gauge of financial stability, providing certainty for Asset Value payments.

Being an independent, we are ideally structured to take a more flexible and collaborative approach to the asset adoption process, and our aim is to forge strong alliances with our partners.

Our processes are streamlined and straightforward, whilst also delivering to the highest standards of competency, safety and legislative compliance – providing our customers with full confidence throughout the project construction and beyond to end users.


BUUK has worked with Utility Infrastructure Providers (UIPs), Independent Utility Connections Providers (ICPs) and Self Lay Providers (SLPs) for over 25 years.

We can adopt domestic, industrial, and commercial utility infrastructure throughout mainland UK. We are an Independent Gas Transporter (IGT), Independent Distribution Network Operator (IDNO) and licenced under the Water Industry Act 1991 as a Water and Sewerage Undertaker (NAV). Our district heat networks are registered with The Heat Trust, underpinning our commitment to protect and safeguard the interests of all heat customers.
