Meet our team

We understand how stressful it can be inviting a new contractor into your home or business.


The team at Waterways are fully insured and accredited, with a huge amount of qualifications. 

Our combined experience is difficult to surpass. Whilst many other companies you employ will have separate lining and excavation teams, we have complete all-round capabilities without the need for additional sub-contractors. This keeps costs lower, and projects delivered with less delays.

Meet the team of professionals that you might see on-site.


Age: 40

Loves: Spending time with my family

Bio: I have 20 years of experience, having worked with all kinds of utilities. This includes digging, replacing, repairing and maintaining underground services in the highway, including reinstatement. I also have seven years experience of lining/no-dig solutions, working on South West Water’s sewerage infrastructures as their Tier 1 Contractor. 


I set up Waterways with specialist knowledge, aiming to serve the South West with a local, experienced, fully qualified and competent team to satisfy customer demands with a professional, reputable and

cost-effective approach.
