  1. Hi, that sounds great. can you share their details?
  2. Hi, Ok thanks for this. Yes i have had the SUDs stuff calculated and worked out, it's the foul water drainage plan i need looking at and the connection to the sewer. Thanks for the advice though i'll ask around. Ivan
  3. Hi, looking for a bit of advice. I employed an Architectural Technician to do the plans for planning permission, and then to help with building control, though he said he doesn't do drainage. I have got everything sorted now with the exception of the build over agreement with Thames Water. I spoke to Thames Water and they said that they only have a combined sewer in our road, and didn't require anything else to be put in. But the council wanted a SUDs system. Therefore we are going to get a Rainwater harvesting tank for Storm surge that then has an ultra low discharge back into the drainage system. The council have signed this off for our planning condition. Sadly a Soakaway is not an option as the ground is clay. I basically need someone that can help with the build-over agreement and at the same time do drawings for the ground-workers to use for construction. It requires a pump, calculations have been done by the people providing the pump, but I still need someone that knows where we should run the drainage and how we can connect to the sewer, as the invert level is 3 metres underground. Any advice greatly appreciated.

  5. Hi, Thanks for this. I will look into them. On the left hand side (while looking from street side) it is a single brick wall, but it already has earth the other side from the other property, but it will also need consideration.
  6. I need to build a retaining wall for my driveway and wondered how much this would should cost roughly. It is in Surrey and is roughly 5.5 metres long and 1.2 metres high at the highest point.
  7. So the house is 2.5 metres below street level where the sewer is. So we need someone to do a drainage plan to show where they run, what depth they have to be, where the manwholes need to go, and then to give me something to send to Thames Water to show we don't need a build over agreement. We also have a surface water tank that requires an overflow to run back into the main system, so need to know if i can run that into the same pump that is pumping up the foul water. Next is who can i get to do my roof design as the Structural Engineer doesn't do that either
  8. Hi, Im Ivan and i'm building a house in Caterham, Surrey and have about a Million questions ;). Firstly i'm struggling to get anyone to do the drainage calculations for my new build project. The architect has said they don't do it, and the Structural Engineer says the same. Then when i speak to the larger companies they don't seem interested as it's too small a project. Any advice would be great. Thanks
