What Our Client’s Say…

“On behalf of the Govenors, Teachers, Staff and Pupils of the school may I thank you and your colleagues for the diligence you all put into undertaking the drainage of our school field. It was a job well done in a very professional manner.

Being a school speed and timing were of the essence and thanks to the efforts of all concerned neither wer compromised and the works commenced and completed during the summer holidays. We are delighted with the outcome'

School playing fields

Over the last two decades we have worked alongside many Public and Private Schools and Local Authorities to implement large scale land drainage and playing surface improvements to water logged playing fields, along with specialist post construction maintenance to ensure the effectiveness of the drainage systems are maintained. ..


All work is rigorously planned and organised to cause as little disruption to the school day as possible and to satisfy all health and safety demands associated with the school environment. Health & Safety Plans, Method Statements and Risk Assessments are agreed with each school before any work commences and the whole project is carefully managed to a satisfactory conclusion with regular and effective communication with the school taking place throughout the project to ensure your total peace of mind.
