Primary drainage systems


The backbone of the drainage scheme

Primary piped land drainage systems form the infrastructure for any subsequent secondary systems by removing ground water through a network of pipes to an outfall. We offer a full drainage design service, taking account of factors such as soil type, topography and available outfalls.

System installation is carried out utilising specialist trenching machinery guided by laser level controls. Continuous chain or spinning wheel trenchers are utilised depending on the ground conditions and drain depth requirements. Both trencher types are fitted with soil loading conveyors and low ground pressure equipment to minimise compaction.
