LDF often carry out excavations to investigate the cause of drainage leaks, blockages and breakages and also for the purpose of installation and replacement of drainage systems.
A recommendation to excavate can be made following a CCTV Survey being carried out previously on the drainage system, or following a site inspection conducted by an LDF Surveyor.
Repairs to below ground drainage are a specialist job. Should a section of pipework be found damaged beyond repair, our Technicians can locate the fault, excavate down onto the pipework and cut away damaged sections, connecting the new installation onto the existing drainage system.
When a damaged drain requires excavation and repairs, the cost and duration of work can vary enormously depending on a number of factors that include the impact on the surrounding area and required equipment. Once instructed, we will assess the drainage situation, identify the drainage problem and then ensure the most appropriate action is taken in the shortest time possible – and with minimum disruption to the area and environment.
We have invested in the latest excavation machinery that allows for pipe laying and drain replacement services work to be done at the same time as renewing existing systems. Our services are used on a variety of drainage systems ranging from clay ware, cast iron, plastic, pitch fibre and even concrete drains.
No job is too large or small for us. We work on any and every scale of project, from localised gullies and pipe repairs to major civil engineering schemes on Local Authority projects.
Our Technicians are trained and qualified in line with current legislation and comply with all Health & Safety regulations for excavation works. This includes specialist NRSWA-certified staff that will plan and implement traffic management measures where necessary.
