Identifying the problem with a faulty drain can be difficult, particularly when most of the infrastructure is buried deep underground, The drain would only be accessible via a manhole or via invasive and costly building work. Fortunately, a CCTV survey and drain inspection provided by Mackoy engineers can help.
CCTV surveys are the most efficient and effective means of determining your drain's health, helping to isolate blockages within your system while identifying any underlying infrastructure problems that need urgent attention.
Using a CCTV camera fed into the system's pipework, our engineers can record high-quality, real-time data images that quickly establish the cause of the drainage issues – even detecting something as slight as a hairline fracture. If left untreated, the drainage problems can be exacerbated and could even unsettle a property's foundations.
In the case of drain blockages, we offer a full drain-cleaning service, combining applied jet pressure-washing and electro-mechanical cleaning techniques to dislodge any limescale build-up, or similar. This service will also clear your drains of any debris that may prevent wastewater expulsion, and so will restore your drains back to full health.
No new home would be complete without plumbing and waste water disposal. As part of our groundwork infrastructure, we create the trenches for these essential services, connecting homes to mainland sewers and ensuring there are provisions for fresh running water.
The first step in any new development, our earthworks prepare the ground for excavation. This is done by stripping away the topsoil, clearing the site of vegetation, removing excess earth (muckaway) and leveling out any unevenness (cut and fill) to make way for groundbreaking to begin.
Our civil engineers use environmental and structural expertise to bring a building to life. Not only do they ensure a development project can be delivered on time and on budget, they also provide the complex calculations needed for a mechanically sound construction.
Our skilled foundations excavators provide stable and strong grounding for buildings, following detailed technical specifications so that trenches are taken to the correct depths, and thereby avoiding collapse and infill.
