This is a recent project that we carried out for the Hampshire County Council over the summer holidays. We installed a completely new pre-insulated heating system for which we undertook all the excavation works, installation of all the below ground pipework and subsequent reinstatement. This kind of installation has become far more common in recent years, with uses such as district heating systems which utilise one common boiler system to provide multiple houses or entire schools with both heating and hot water.
Now starts the backfill process, for this we use selected surplus and if required imported stone. This is all compacted in layers to prevent the ground from sinking at a later date, and marker tape is incorporated to help anyone who may have to excavate this at a later date identify the pipe below it.
For all emergency leak repairs, both internal and external, on your water or gas on the consumer side of the primary meter, please call: 01243 864765 and one of our engineers will swiftly assess the situation.
