Lanes Group

Drainage contractors and more. To the core.

Serious about excellence
The Lanes Group is more than a wastewater solutions provider. We still stand proudly at the centre of the UK drainage industry, which continues to be the very heart of our business. But, we have also explored, expanded and extended this core activity into specialist sectors, taking our successes and achievements in one field and applying them to others. We have diversified where that has been needed. And we have accommodated the changing demands of our clients. In every case, we believe we have made a real difference.

Serious about service
Our Rail Division, for example, is a respected, multi-disciplinary contractor providing asset management services which go way beyond drains, taking in reactive and planned station maintenance and rail projects. Lanes Utilities manages wastewater network framework contracts, whilst we cover the direct domestic drainage market via our nationwide network of Lanes for Drains’ depots. And, when it comes to sewer rehabilitation our award-winning Reline Division has a reputation that ensures it is always in demand. For drainage services, Lanes really does go from A to Z.

Serious about technology
We said we were more than drains. And we are. Our use and development of technology, both for practical solutions on the drainage frontline, and behind the scenes in enabling systems and processes, has been acknowledged by the industry with a raft of accreditations and awards. Membership of key organisations such as UKSTT (UK Society for Trenchless Technology), WJA (Water Jetting Association), and holding WRc approval for specific products and processes ensures that we are always cognisant with, and, in many cases, at the forefront of industry strategy and technological advances. And naturally we hold Achilles Verify and Achilles’ sector-specific accreditations (Building Confidence for Construction; Link-Up for Rail and UVDB for Utilities).

Serious about safety
The Lanes’ health and safety focus, another award winner, is the DNA of the organisation, shaping every move we make. We have RoSPA gold to prove it. On top of that, we’re accredited by or affiliated to recognised specialist bodies including BSI, British Safety Council, CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme), Construction Line, Safe Contractor, SMAS Worksafe, Contractor Plus, Safemark, Eurosafe and Exor.

Serious about the future
The Lanes Group combines the very best of practical skills with a truly pioneering spirit. Here you will find the elements which have brought us this far, and will see us continue long into the future: rock-solid capability and market leading innovation; technical competence and enterprising enthusiasm; sheer hard graft and cutting edge technology; reliability and intrepidity.

Where we lead, others follow.
