New Contract Win – South Cambridgeshire District Council
We’re delighted to announce that from the end of October 2016 Anglia Drain Doctor will be working with local authority, South Cambridgeshire District Council.
We recently won the contract to service the drainage requirements of 5,700 houses in and around the South Cambridgeshire area, which comprises 34 electoral wards.
Based in Cambourne, the district council sits below Cambridgeshire County Council and is responsible for services such as waste collection and recycling, local planning, environmental health services, council tax collection, housing services, and of course, drain repairs and maintenance for the houses they own.
Innovative Drainage Services
The main services we’ll be providing are drain surveys, clearing and unblocking, and the very latest 3D mapping techniques to visualise the state of the drainage system – as it’s never been seen before!
3D mapping and CCTV drain surveys are great ways to inspect drains and sewers with speed, unrivalled accuracy and minimal disruption. It’s also particularly cost-effective as there’s no need to dig up the ground to gain access.
Our sophisticated cameras and specialist software provide our technicians with instant reports on the condition of your underground drains, with real-time results that you can see for yourself.
Virtual Drain Surveys
3D mapping gathers precise data to create a truly panoramic virtual view of your drain, with detailed scans of the surfaces within your drains and sewers – ideal for detecting cracks, holes, tree roots, debris, grease, fat and oil buildups, and other sources of pipe damage, deformation and blockages.
South Cambridgeshire DC’s motto is “Nothing without work” (translated from the Dutch: Niet zonder arbyt), which seems particularly fitting as it’s also the family motto of Cornelius Vermuyden, a Dutchman who was brought to England to drain The Fens. Hopefully our drainage work for SCDC won’t be quite as challenging!
