Drainage in cemeteries is complex due to physical, environmental and practical constraints.
CDS specialise in the drainage of cemeteries; designing bespoke solutions to surface and groundwater problems. We designed and project managed the country’s first deep groundwater drainage system for cemeteries; leading the way with a new methodology which has since become established as best practice.
Our specialist technical services provide management of the following areas:
CDS undertake a three staged approach to identifying the problem, define a solution and implement the drainage strategy:
Before any assumptions are made as to the causes of the drainage problem, our soil engineers and drainage specialists carry out a detailed site survey which includes some or all of the following:
From the results of the desktop survey and intrusive site investigation, our team of engineers will determine:
A detailed report is then prepared with outline management options highlighting the nature of the drainage problem along with a summary of design recommendations and associated costs.
Once the budgets and type of drainage scheme have been agreed, CDS will progress with Stage 2 design work which would include:
Once a contractor has been appointed, the CDS team will ensure all aspects of the design are installed as per the detailed specification; that the project is finished on time and to budget. CDS achieves this by providing an ongoing client relationship package. Our engineers also ensure that the contractors are fully briefed on all required works so they are well placed to monitor the project meticulously from start to finish.
