Innovations through tweaks to the original design of this project allowed our crew to capture and divert water without having to resort to expensive excavations – a benefit for both ACG and our client more efficiently.


Embarking on the task of designing and constructing a new driveway access, drainage system, and service identification within the confines of school term and hours presented our crews with a unique opportunity to demonstrate their flexibility and expertise. As we delved into the project, it became evident that meticulous planning was essential to ensure the efficient management of resources and time.

Our crew took the time to thoroughly assess the situation, carefully considering the existing ground conditions and the natural flow of water during rainfall. Our ultimate aim was clear: to devise a solution that would effectively capture and redirect water without incurring the high costs associated with extensive excavation.

Drawing upon our expertise, we implemented a combination of subsoil drainage techniques and strip drains in the final design. This strategic approach not only ensured ample drainage but also safeguarded valuable assets and resolved the client’s access concerns.

ACG’s careful planning and innovative solutions not only met but exceeded expectations. Despite the constraints of school term and hours, we delivered a sustainable and effective solution that has ensured our client’s property is better protected for years to come.
