What is commercial drain mapping?
Drain mapping is investigative work that needs completing before a construction project can begin. Architects and construction workers need to know exactly where drains and pipework is located, before they can start building, as this can cause considerable difficulties later on and could result in expensive repairs being required if damage is incurred.
We carry out drain mapping via our CCTV drainage surveys which is an unobtrusive but effective way to accurately map the sewage and drainage system, which our team can use to create a detailed plan of the system including drain runs, manholes and water flow direction. The footage and images taken will be recorded and made available to you, along with advice and guidance on the best way to keep the drains running smoothly.
This survey will then be used by architects and builders to keep the building work running smoothly. Drain mapping is a cost-effective, accurate way to ensure you’re building in the right areas, so you don’t cause damage to the drainage infrastructure.
Why is drain mapping necessary?
With continual developments within the construction industry and buildings constantly being changed and renovated, up-to-date plans can be difficult to obtain. With our drain mapping services, you can be sure that any planned construction work won’t cause damage to the drains and pipes, resulting in the need to repair the pipework.
Drain mapping gives you a clear overview of the state of drainage in a given area – it’s a property owner’s responsibility to inspect the infrastructure before building work takes place. Mapping surveys will make it clear whether a ‘build over’ agreement is needed. Whether used for an existing project or a new build, a map of the drainage system is a key component of the build.
