Typical construction process
Land easement fencing: We strive to build a good rapport with landowners and understand the complexities that linear projects pose with regard to access and egress, this approach ensures that work can start and continue in a manner that is widely understood. We erect easement fencing in accordance with client & landowner’s requirements and once complete begin to strip topsoil using trained professionals and economic, smooth & efficient plant to mitigate loss of topsoil or cross contamination with sub-soils.
Pipe Stringing: With bespoke pipe trailers that can be modified to suit most pipe sizes and materials stringing can be carried out safely and efficiently ready for installation.
Installation: With technology constantly evolving, HWS (UK) LTD strive to equip and train our staff in the latest plant and machinery available to ensure that our environmental impact is kept minimal. We aim to recycle almost all as-dug material using riddling buckets to create a pipe bed & surround that not only meets CESWI specification but minimises import & export of material from site. We also aim to avoid de-hedging and tree removal so that re-growth and re-cover is achieved rapidly.

Pipe Jointing: Our trained and skilled workforce are fully experienced with jointing all types of pipe in accordance with manufacturers specification. Staff are trained in all manner of pipe jointing techniques and specialist plant is hired where necessary to ensure pipe is jointed correctly.
Reinstatement: From sub-soiling, top-soiling and seeding, HWS (UK) LTD aim to return the land back as soon as reasonably practical, working alongside the client and landowner to ensure they are happy with the approach and quality means that we have assurance in a first-time reinstatement.
