Description of the contract

Over the course of the previous 2 years, an extensive programme of surveying and jetting has taken place on the existing drainage system (above and below ground) across the entire Parliamentary Estate. This programme has examined most of the drainage installations within the Estate and has currently identified over 500 areas which require an element of repair. The work will need to be carried out within a World Heritage site which is fully operational. Disruptive work is only permitted out of normal working hours or in recess periods. This work will include: Scale cutting & removal Excavate and replace damaged pipe work Manhole remedial works or replacement CCTV survey Pipe lining Dye tracing of above ground and below ground pipe work. Updating any layout drawings It should also be noted that the required excavations will be taking place in areas such as the basement, access roads, grassed areas and pavements and will therefore require very careful planning, programming and consideration. Due to logistical issues, it is likely that this programme of works will take between 18-24 months to complete.
