Public Buildings and Spaces

Public buildings come in all shapes and sizes, so the best solution to managing and servicing drainage assets is a tailored one. Here, UKDN Waterflow’s sector expertise is the perfect fit, even when drainage is complex or poorly-documented.

We have been looking after drainage in public buildings, like town halls, theatres and libraries, for many years. Whether it is unblocking drains and sewers, emptying and cleaning septic tanks and aco drains, CCTV drainage surveys, CAD mapping or renovation and repairs, we now offer all the commercial drainage services you could possibly need.

Whenever suits you

Naturally we carry out maintenance visits to public buildings outside normal opening hours, minimising disruption to the public.

Keep it regular

Flushing drains out regularly maximises flow rate and reduces the chance of blockages. Where there is poor fall or a build up of fat, oil and grease (FOG), for instance, pipes will benefit from more frequent visits. Surface water drainage and culverts may become silted up but high pressure jetting once or twice a year helps them keep flowing freely. Similarly, ponding and flooding in car parks can be avoided with regular cleaning of septic tanks, aco drains, gullies and interceptors.

Latest technology

Thanks to advanced CCTV technology, we are able to identify the exact cause of drainage defects on problematic lines. We then provide a comprehensive report which details the drain condition, invert levels, flow directions and connections, and give recommendations and itemised costs of repairs that may be needed to make the drainage runs fit for purpose.

Protecting the public

Managing drainage assets in local authority public spaces is crucial to ensuring that flooding and, in extreme cases, subsidence, does not affect local residents and users. UKDN Waterflow is expert in mapping, surveying and remediating the culvert and drainage infrastructure. And we provide no-dig solutions where possible when repairs are required to minimise disruption to the environment and the public. Our drain mapping work is integral to understanding all underground assets, and complements work undertaken by the PMSA.

Emergency response

We offer a 24/7 emergency service, and the ability and experience to resolve any drainage — or fresh water pipe — emergencies, within four-hour response times, across the UK.
