Agricultural Land Drainage Design
From initial enquiry through to installation, we have an experienced team to complete all elements of the drainage cycle required.
At the drainage design point, we ensure all factors are considered to allow an efficient scheme to be considered. It is important to liaise with all clients to understand budgets, cropping plans, time constraints, current problems and existing drainage within. All these provide key information at the design stage.
We have in house surveyors equipped with the very latest GPS technology, that allows accurate and intensive data capture to take place. This technology has evolved dramatically, providing multiple benefits to both the surveyors and the client. We are able to collate existing drainage information through old drainage plans, and record exact positioning of outfalls, culverts, obstacles etc, as well as current soil structures, that allow an important profile to be built up to assist with a specific bespoke drainage proposal.
This information Is then used back in the office, through a specific created program to design an effective and efficient detailed digital drainage proposal. As all our drainage trenchers are now equipped with the latest GPS technology also, this information can be directly uploaded to ensure they have this accurate data for the actual installation.
Cross Country Pipelines, Windfarms & Onshore Cable Routes Land Drainage Design
Our extensive experience being involved in the completion of major Cross Country Pipelines, Windfarms and Onshore Cable routes, has allowed us to build an understanding of what national contractors require at design stage.
We have been involved in various sized project designs providing a comprehensive pre-construction and post-construction design to assist with project budgeting through to contractor selection and install.
Albeit completed in a very similar way to the agricultural aspect of GPS survey, these designs are on a much larger scale taking into consideration existing drainage schemes, watercourse crossings, highways etc.
Time is spent with landowners and agents to discuss individual affects along the route to ensure all existing drainage is preserved and returned back to the same, or in most cases, land returned back in better conditions.
The GPS topographical surveys competed allow a detailed electronic/digital set of plans to be completed back in the office.
