When you are starting up a construction or renovation project, one of the most crucial aspects is to ensure your foundation can drain properly. A well-designed drainage plan will help to protect your building and ensure it is waterproof. This means that there won’t be any seepage of water into the building no matter how much rainfall falls on the site.

Commercial drainage installations vary. Commercial premises can have anything from small septic tanks to large man-made waterways depending on the requirements of the local area. Drainage is often an integral part of construction projects as well, especially larger scale building endeavors where extensive excavation work needs to be done beforehand in order to lay underground pipes which will form part of a complex drainage system. Even smaller-scale commercial projects may need land drain installation services for new buildings if they are being built near existing pipework or other physical structures that cannot easily be adapted/altered by the contractor without causing major inconvenience.

Commercial Drainage Systems

Commercial drainage systems are generally used in places where there is a higher volume of water to be dealt with, including car parks and areas adjacent to buildings undergoing construction work. The system itself comprises three main components: first, an array of drain holes or pipes must be dug out or constructed using concrete – this depends on the specifics of the installation and the availability of excavation equipment. Next, a pump unit must be provided for pumping any collected water away from these holes/pipes; this will require mains power as well as a networked control system that interfaces with other building management protocols such as fire alarms and security systems. Finally, a debris filter must be installed to waste water and other by-products of drainage such as grit.

Industrial drainage systems

Usually involve the use of heavy equipment and trucks that necessitate road closures and excavations, creating disruption and inconvenience for those living or working in the vicinity. This is different from commercial drainage solutions which are designed with minimal environmental impact in mind. The excavation process can involve a lightweight mechanical digger – or ‘mini digger’ – rather than a larger vehicle, meaning it’s possible to remain inside the boundaries of a construction site while carrying out installation work. In addition, commercial drain contractors will ensure that an area adjacent to any excavated hole/pipe is left undisturbed during installation; this not only reduces operator safety risks, but means it’s easier to replace the excavated soil at a later date.

Land Drainage Installation services

are usually carried out by drainage installation contractors who specialise in designing, laying, and maintaining all kinds of commercial drainage systems. Although there is no legal requirement for business owners to have their drainage system installed or maintained by professional contractors, doing so may prove more cost-effective in the long run, as it reduces instances of damage caused by heavy vehicles passing over buried cables or pipes. Land drainage refers to the process of getting rid of excess water that collects on land, often in low-lying areas or where heavy rainfall can collect. To do this, a system is required which will carry the water away from the site and into public drainage networks – an example of effective surface drainage varies depending upon what type of commercial premises they will be servicing; whether it’s a retail park, residential block or commercial warehouse. However, while it may be possible for businesses to utilise their own staff to carry out work like relaying cables or repairing damaged piping, there’s often too much ground to cover for them to get around efficiently enough. For that reason alone it’s often more practical to use commercial drainage installation companies instead.

Surface Drainage

Surface drainage systems are usually used when there are no restrictions for installation in order to achieve maximum surface area coverage. This type of system consists of an interconnected array of foundation drains; this foundation drain varies in depth depending on how high up and close to the building’s foundation walls the drainpipe is to be installed. The drainage channel (drainage ditch) that collects and then diverts water away from a site can range in width and depth; it can either be dug out or constructed using concrete – this depends on the specifics of the installation and the availability of excavation equipment. Surface drains / surface water drains/roadside gullies collect excess surface water from hard surfaces such as roads and car parks. They transport it away from these surfaces and either release it into a nearby river or sewer or they can hold it until released by other means such as a nearby soakaway.

Subsurface Drains: Subsurface drains take the form of gravel-filled trenches that contain perforated or open-jointed pipes. Subsurface drains are laid in the trenches which are then covered with soil so there is no need for further maintenance to them, other than clearing any excess vegetation growing around them.

Deep Drains: Deep drains are installed by either trenching when they are excavated manually using spades or mechanical diggers / mini-diggers, or their use of directional drilling techniques when the installation is undertaken by machine (machine deep drain boring). Both methods involve digging a trench into which a pipe known as an irrigation tube is then inserted and buried at the correct depth below the surface of the ground. The end of this pipe has sharp teeth that help break up the material in front of it and these teeth can be changed and/or sharpened when required.

Soil Drainage Systems

Soil drainage systems are best used when there are restrictions for installation to reduce the amount of land space required due to surrounding buildings or other obstructions. This type of system consists of an interconnected array of tubes that, when pumped full with pressurized air, create capillary suction at their lower end. The suction draws surface water into them via permeable soil conditions above them; through these, the water is then transported into a sump from which it can be pumped away.

Subsurface/UnderGround Drainage

The type of pipe network which forms the foundation upon which the entire land drainage system will be built upon. The larger the scale of a project, the more complex and extensive the drainage network around and underneath it is likely to be. Although their function is essentially similar to road gullies, underground drain pipes are aligned in such a way as to intercept rainwater from both surfaces (e.g. road/building) before it’s directed elsewhere; either towards another underground drain pipe or towards a nearby watercourse via an adjacent land drainage channel (of any sort)
