Drain Surveys and Testing

Pre-Design/Contract CCTV Drain Surveys

C J Uden & Co are now offering pre-design /contract surveys for proposed building projects , providing information on existing drainage systems prior to detailed designs or specifications being prepared by architects or surveyors.

The service includes locating all accessible drains , high pressure jetting , CCTV survey with video/DVD copy retained, sketch layout of existing drainage system,full detailed written condition report , recommendations for any necessary remedial works and budget costings should these be required.

This will provide the designer / specifier with greater information than normally available to facilitate the design/alteration of either the existing drainage system or the structure of the building.This information will also ensure that the proposed alterations/designs will not be compromised by existing defective drains and the client/supervising officer will not have to contend with unforeseen costs for remedial works to the existing drainage system as these will be able to be fully incorporated within the specification of works.

If you feel that we could be of any service to yourself or would like to discuss the services we provide further then please do not hesitate to contact Tony White or Andrew Thom.
