Before deciding on the best renovation solution for a given drain or sewer, our CCTV engineers use sophisticated, remotely-controlled camera units to survey the pipe. This is an integral part of the sewer renovation service, and allows us to prepare a report detailing the nature of the problem, and the remedial action we recommend to effect full sewer rehabilitation. In larger diameter pipes, we may carry out man-entry surveys with personnel trained in confined space working.
Renovation by relining
Wherever possible, our sewer renovation specialists use relining also known as 'no-dig' or 'trenchless' technology — to rehabilitate sewers and drains ranging from 225mm to 2500mm in diameter. For localised repairs to specific sections of drain, we may use a technique known as patching which is suitable for pipes with diameters from 100mm up to 1250mm.
Once the project is underway, our expert team will manage the process right through from design stage to standards approved and certified by PDL (Pipeline Development Limited).
The awards keep coming
Lanes is no stranger to accolades for its sewer rehabilitation projects. For the last three years, the UKSTT (UK Society for Trenchless Technology) has recognised our achievements with awards for several projects; some environmentally challenging, some technically difficult, some requiring an innovative approach — but all pioneering. Recent masterpieces include:
- Lining a part round, part box-shaped sewer suspended 200 metres above the estuary under a major road bridge at Conwy Wales
- Renovating a potentially leaky sewer alongside a river in Bolton, without access to the far bank or headroom for scaffolding, but still keeping the cycle path open throughout
- Rehabilitating a Victorian sewer in a town centre whilst keeping pedestrians, shoppers, businesses and retailers safe and happy
- Lining thousands of metres of a city centre sewer network to accommodate the extra weight of an extended tram and track system running above it
- Implementing a major sewer renovation scheme in a West country fishing village, working up hill and down dale in the tightest of spaces, in many cases without access for normal plant and equipment
- Using a series of short reinforced patch liners to repair a pipe bridge leaking waste into a water course below
