At Timberley Projects, we are specialists in both commercial groundworks and residential groundworks working throughout Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire. An essential part of our work for clients is groundworks service installations.
Service Installations are the critical systems that we install into our buildings to make them comfortable, functional, efficient modern and safe. They include everything from heating, ventilation and air conditioning, to lighting, plumbing and information and communication technology.
Groundworks Service Installations services we offer:
Firstly, let’s talk about water service installations. Supplying your building project with water usually involves digging a trench to receive the water pipe at a depth of 750mm.
Secondly, let’s explore the process of gas service installations. The first steps to incorporate a gas supply usually involves digging a 600mm deep trench to receive the gas pipe. We often surround the pipework with sand for protection. Importantly, we always backfill introducing a warning tape 200mm above the new pipe.
Installation of communications services usually involves digging a trench to receive the duct (depth can vary). Communications cables are already in a protective conduit. Consequently, there is no necessity to surround this in sand or backfill it.
Finally, our groundworks service installations include electrics. This process usually involves digging a trench to receive electric cables. This trench is typically at 600mm, bedded and surrounded in sand. Furthermore, it is backfilled with warning tape 200mm above the installation.
On the other hand, if you decide you do not want to surround any of the pipes or cables in sand, you can put all utilities through a duct.
