Drain Doctor wins new drainage contract for Newham Council’s housing portfolio

17 September 2019

Drain Doctor®, one of the UK’s largest drain clearance and emergency plumbing company, has won a new two-year contract with Newham Council to identify and resolve any drainage issues across its 16,000 council managed housing and residential estates.  The contract started on 2nd September 2019.

Newham Council has awarded Drain Doctor London Central with the contract to provide support to its in-house repair and maintenance team for investigations, surveying, repairs and maintenance to waste water drainage systems. 

The work will include Drain Doctor engineers sending a state-of-the-art CCTV camera down into the drainage system to identify and locate real time footage of blockages, leaks or other damage that requires repair on individual properties.  In addition, Drain Doctor will conduct drain mapping which will provide exact information about the location of sewers and drains, water flow direction, type, and measurements of a wastewater network.

Ian Robinson, Director of Drain Doctor London Central, said: “We are delighted to win this new contract with Newham Council to diagnose and resolve any drainage issues amongst their residential properties.  Not only are our engineers trained to the highest standards, but they have the commitment and knowledge of the latest drain technology to cure any drainage problems that the properties could face or are facing. 

“We fully recognise that Newham Council’s housing is key to the standing of the Borough and we will do everything to ensure that whatever the concern, we can provide a quick, non-invasive and cost-effective way to detect drainage problems.  We are really excited to start the work and look forward to working with the Council across their housing stock.”
