We have built up a strong and trusted relationship with various utility suppliers within our area of operation, delivering infrastructure projects on pumping stations, reservoirs, water treatment and wastewater recycling facilities.
Our teams have developed a strong understanding of the processes and gained invaluable knowledge over the years that helps to identify potential project challenges relating to planned plant shutdowns and the organisation required to bring facilities back into service.
As a company, we adopt a collaborative approach to managing challenges and believe that sharing lessons learned with all those involved in a project develops an extremely valuable team ethic which contributes to safe and efficient project delivery.
We have extensive knowledge of sewer-associated connections and apparatus, meaning our trained engineers can offer the advice required to ensure the most efficient method of installation is achieved. As an Anglian Water Approved Contractor and partner, we are approved to carry out sewer connections onto the main sewer via several methods, which include: a Y- junction, new manhole construction, saddle connection, connection into an existing manhole, new mains being laid.
If you require a new connection or alteration to your current connection to the main Foul Water Sewer System, then you will need to apply for a sewer connection application, often referred to as a section 106. Once you have completed this, you will require an approved contractor to carry out the installation work for you. Whether you’re building a new house or residential development, you will need to make a legal connection to the main sewer, at this point, our team can assist you throughout the whole process.
As an approved contractor, Health and Safety is always our priority. We are fully compliant with all relevant current legislation which ensures that our clients receive a reliable service from start to finish. Additionally, due to the nature of the works required, all our teams are trained to the highest standards in all aspects of the works:
• New Roads and Streetworks Accredited (NRSWA): which allows us to work on the public highway.
• Confined Spaces Trained: this training ensures the highest standards of Health and Safety are maintained when working within an excavation or manhole.
• Excavation Awareness: trained to carry out the excavations in line with industry guidelines which includes the installation of designed Temporary Works.
Our teams are fully equipped with all the additional technology that enables us to deal with drainage issues. Ranging from vacuum tankers, CCTV, Ground Penetrating Radar ( GPR ) and other service avoidance equipment and No-Dig Technologies. Meaning, from the initial contact, we can guide you through the whole process, liaise with highways and water authorities, arrange traffic management requirements, carry out the works, arrange inspections and complete all full and final reinstatement to the satisfaction of all parties concerned.
