Moving a sewer so an extension can be built

Our client was extending to the rear of their property, and while excavating for the new foundations had found an existing 225mm foul water sewer – this is always a possibility when doing any sort of extension around an existing property. The client produced his own drawings for the application to Thames Water for a minor diversion, which was passed by the authority, and we were awarded the work. The timescale between placement of the order to starting on site was only two weeks, as no licence was required. The work carried out included the removal of an existing pre-cast concrete camber, replacing it in a slightly different location, and the removal of 10m of clay 225mm pipe.

“We had Premier Drainage Solutions out to move a sewer pipe, which was running at an angle across our garden. It was laying right in the way of our planned extension. They came out, discussed what we had agreed with Thames Water, and gave us a quote. We were booked in quickly and the work was completed efficiently and without any fuss. Great communication from start to finish. They also worked with Thames Water to have the new pipe inspected. I would definitely recommend and If I ever need help in the future, I’d not hesitate to use them again. Many thanks.”
Vicki Smith, homeowner

“Hayden and his team did an excellent job on our public sewer diversion with a quick turnaround so we could get our extension started. Very professional since our first call, would definitely recommend!”
