Water Construction Services

Here at Welchcivils we collaborate with our customers at every stage of a project, from determining network capacity availability to transferring constructed assets to the water. Our experts are also skilled in liaising with and challenging the water authority on matters such as statutory water charges and any consumer contributions that the water company requires in order to help customers save money.

Building water networks

Welchcivils is responsible for the excavation, backfilling, and reinstatement of the entire network infrastructure of water mains and services.

Installtion Process –

Prior to releasing the new water assets to the regional water authority, our teams complete the commissioning operations of pressure testing, disinfection, and final connection to the live water network.

Fire Safety -

As part of our design and installation processes, we consult with the Fire Authority to determine their hydrant requirements. We install fire hydrants when requested and arrange for their transfer to the Fire Authority once completed.

Service Connections and Water Meters -

Welchcivils can also assist with water meter installation. Our technical proficiency in water connections means that, depending on your local water company's desire, we can install service connections and meters according to your build schedule.

Project Completion -

After the installation operation, our staff conduct testing, chlorination, flushing, and final charge with your potable water, and then we transfer the water network assets to the regional water authority.

Water network design

We comprehensively design and cost the water infrastructure to customer needs as part of our water design process, either as a stand-alone job or as part of a holistic multi-utility solution. We project manage the process, coordinating with developers, local governments, and the adopting water provider to ensure that the assets are connected and adopted on time and on budget. We develop certified water network designs by following the strict national design approval standards, which include site surveys, audits, and inspections.
