City of Lincoln Council has chosen UKDN Waterflow for a new contract to carry out drainage services, camera surveys and repairing of in situ pipes. The contract will be for an initial three year period, with a potential further two year extension option, and will commence on 1st September 2014.
City of Lincoln Council has a reactive and proactive requirement for all the drains to be cleared including pressure jetting and clearing of any obstruction in any diameter pipe work, up to and including a 450mm diameter. UKDN Waterflow will provide CCTV surveying, inspection and reporting on the condition of drains, pipelines, including CAD drawings and recommendations. They will also repair or replace above and below ground drainage, underground pipe work and associated components.
Nick Harris, CEO of UKDN Waterflow said, “We are delighted to work on this project for City of Lincoln Council. UKDN Waterflow already works with other with local authorities and will give the same value and precision reporting, and suggested remedial work for City of Lincoln Council.”
UKDN Waterflow, who provide water, wastewater, drainage and infrastructure solutions across the UK, was chosen by the council after a thorough tender process that saw them pitched against five other major drainage suppliers. The work will be undertaken at mainly occupied properties and a key priority for the winning service provider will be the wellbeing of the occupants, visitors and the general members of the public who have access to the buildings. UKDN Waterflow’s reputation is built on effective stakeholder management, safety and excellent customer service care.
