Sometimes due to service locations, lack of access or disruption to the surrounding area, hand digging may be necessary to locate a problematic section of pipework. We have the expertise, experience and insurance to safely excavate to depths of up to 3m, ensuring the correct trench support is in place, and the impact of the excavation on the surrounding buildings, structures and environment is minimal.
Rainwater harvesting systems substantially reduce consumption of potable water by using the roof as a collector of rainwater. This water is stored underground and can be used for the garden hose supply, toilets and washing machines. As the population grows and our water reserves decline, the need for rainwater harvesting systems becomes ever more important, as these systems replace water usage in a safe and convenient way.
sewage treatment plants
We are fully competent in installing the highest quality sewage treatment plants, including Kingspan Klargester and Biorock.
driveway crossover/dropped kerbs
If you intend to drive a vehicle over the footway into your driveway off a highway, then you will need a dropped kerb. If you do not have a dropped kerb, you must not drive over the footway. If you do, you are breaking the law.
We have the NRSWA accreditation required and equipment necessary to perform these tasks in the shortest possible time frames, keeping the disruption to you and your neighbours to an absolute minimum and complying with local highways authority regulations.
do you require groundworks?
No-dig technology has had a dramatic impact on the way drains and sewers are repaired and maintained. It is often possible to undertake the necessary works without any excavation at all, by using the existing access points in the drainage network. But when their is no convenient access point, or a blockage or breakage is so severe that it cannot be dealt with remotely, excavation work may be necessary.
Waterways Drainage stand out from the crowd as we have the tools and the expertise to perform whatever groundworks may be needed to reach and resolve the problem. Most of the groundworks Cornwall drainage engineers undertake are close to buildings, so the right methods must be used to avoid damaging homes and other structures. As experienced and qualified groundworks contractors, we know how to use trench support techniques in order to operate in even the most restricted or sensitive spaces. With full insurance and equipment which allows is to safely excavate to a depth of 3m, we are the groundworks contractors Cornwall customers can turn to for solutions to their trickiest problems.
Besides the installation and repair of drainage infrastructure, our role as groundworks contractors has seen our teams digging footings for rainwater harvesting tanks, installing sewage treatment plants from Kingspan Klargester and Biorock, and creating dropped herbs to give householders access to their driveways. It's illegal to drive over a kerb to reach your drive without this modification. For these type of groundworks Cornwall householders need to turn to a NRSWA accredited groundworks contractor, to ensure that all work is completed in accord with all the applicable regulations. At Waterways Drainage we are fully qualified to undertake this work.
