The Harlequin Group offer a comprehensive range of services in:

  • Site Acquisition
  • Estates Management
  • Town Planning
  • Design and Build

We have experienced multi-skilled teams of surveyors, town planners, civil & electrical engineers and telecoms engineers who offer our services nationwide.

The telecoms industry has evolved very quickly over the past five years and product life cycles have become progressively shorter.

This means that we now need to deploy multi-skilled teams that can hit the ground running and get things done to exacting standards and timescales.

Site Case Study: BDUK Project


Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK): this is an initiative by the British Government who have invested around £1 billion to improve broadband and mobile infrastructure to:

  1. Provide superfast broadband coverage to 90% of the UK by 2016
  2. Provide basic broadband (2Mbps) for all by 2016

We are pleased to have had input into such a substantial initiative and have had key successes during our involvement.

Our Successes on BDUK:

The Harlequin Group has worked on the BDUK project from its inception and has now secured over 30,000 site consents which has helped us achieve a planning and success rate of 94% including planning appeals. We have prepared detailed design and as-built drawings on all of these sites.

With offices strategically located across the UK, we have effectively deployed staff the length and breadth of the UK, including the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, and this has been a key factor that has helped us achieve outstanding results.

Stakeholder Engagement
Our reputation & relationships with key stakeholders has helped us achieve a planning appeal / non-objection success rate of 94%.

Our staff, multi-disciplinary teams and experience are key to our success on this project.
