Drainage in Kent
Here at Bon Groundwork Ltd, we specialise in underground services. Operating from our Orpington office, we cover the whole of Kent and Medway, combining excavation and groundwork solutions to provide an extensive range of professional drainage services. Our groundwork contractors have experience with both surface water and foul drainage systems, as well as deep drainage and mains sewer connections.
Areas covered by our groundwork company include Bromley, Dartford, Maidstone, Medway, Orpington, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, and beyond.
We can provide drainage services on a standalone basis, or to enable work for other contractors and developers. With most drainage systems being located below the surface, groundwork contractors like ourselves have an important role to play in their installation, maintenance and repair. A damaged drainage system could see surface water run-off contaminated by foul drainage, which will lead to unsanitary conditions that may have a negative impact on health.
Another key thing to consider is shared drainage systems. This is an important factor when working on commercial grounds or on existing developments. Here at Bon Groundwork Ltd, we work alongside private customers, commercial clients, and property developers alike, throughout Kent and Medway. This means there is little in the field of drainage work that our contractors cannot handle.
Mains Sewer Connections
If you need to connect your property or development plot to the main sewer system, be sure to contact Bon Groundwork today. We provide an end-to-end main sewer connection service, covering everything from the initial paperwork to the final connectivity of your property to surface water and foul drainage systems.
We can manage simple or manhole connections on roads, private properties, and developments, as well as more complex civil engineering and infrastructural work. We play an active role in the application process, helping you obtain the required section notices and liaising with the local water authorities and highway departments.
The mains sewer connection itself can often be completed in a matter of days, although this timescale will have to be extended if the mains sewer is located a significant distance from the site.
Sometimes, connection to a mains sewer is just not practical. As an alternative, Bon Groundwork Ltd can help you install a cesspit, a septic tank, or a sewage treatment plant on the site. Our decades of experience in excavation, groundwork and foundations ensures you project is in safe hands.
Your foul drainage system is a network of pipes and connectors that transfers waste from wet appliances in kitchens, bathrooms, utility rooms, and more direct into the mains sewer system. This waste water eventually reaches a local treatment plant where it is sterilised. The opposite of this is surface water, which is caused by the pooling of rain or storm water. The drainage and guttering systems themselves split these two types of water, directing them into separate parts of the overall drainage system.
If your drainage system is disconnected or otherwise compromised, this can lead to foul drainage water mixing with surface water mixing. This results in contaminated water that, once it disperses and reaches the water table, create unsanitary land conditions. These can prove highly dangerous, posing a significant threat to human and animal life in the area.
At Bon Groundwork Ltd, we have been involved in drainage installation and repairs across Bromley, Dartford, Maidstone, Medway, Orpington, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, and beyond, for more than forty years. You can rely on us to provide a fast and effective solution to your drainage needs, keeping all foul drainage and surface water systems contained and in good working order.
Water can be an unpredictable thing to work with, making it dangerous if you do not have the equipment and experience to handle the job properly. At Bon Groundwork Ltd, our groundwork contractors have decades of accumulated expertise under their collective belt that covers all elements of drainage work, including deep drainage.
In addition to their skills, our team has access to the very best in pumping and trenching equipment to make our deep drainage solutions more efficient. Our deep drainage services are available to domestic customers and commercial clients alike, both in the public and private sector. We have reduced surface water and aided with other drainage solutions throughout the county, assisting with homes, developments, industry sectors, public land, sports fields, and more.
