Land drainage issues can be difficult to solve due to the many physical, environmental and practical constraints that need to be addressed. CDS are specialists in the design of site-specific solutions for both surface water and groundwater problems.
Our specialist technical services include management of the following areas:
CDS undertake a three staged approach to identify the problem, define a solution and implement the drainage strategy:
Before any assumptions are made on the causes of the drainage problem, our soil engineers and drainage specialists will carry out a detailed site survey which comprises:
From the results of the desktop survey and intrusive site investigation, our engineering team will determine:
A detailed written report with outline management options will be presented to the client highlighting the type of drainage problem with a summary of costed design options.
Once the budget and type of drainage scheme have been agreed, CDS will progress with Stage 2 design work which would include:
CDS make sure that once a contractor has been selected and the site works have started that all aspects of the drainage design are installed in line with the agreed detailed specification, and completed on time and to budget. We do this through our comprehensive client relationship package, which ensures that contractors are fully briefed on the work in hand and meticulously monitored from start to completion.
