Jason Raymond is the founder and Managing Director of Premier Energy Services, a utility infrastructure consultancy in the UK. Since the company’s creation in 1995, he has been an active member in multiple regulatory organisations, committees and steering groups including BSi’s PAS 128 and PAS 256.
PAS 128 is the “Specification for Underground Utility Detection, Verification and Location”. Published in July 2014 the BSi has sought to define quality levels for each type of survey as the accuracy of utility discovery improves throughout the development life cycle.

He has a wealth of experience of the variety of different uses for the reports including how QL-D informs the acquisition of land from a legal due diligence and residual values perspective as well as Health & Safety and CDM regulations. He has spent 23 years in utility consulting managing projects on behalf of a range of clients including developers; contractors; public sector; engineers and the legal profession.
