Water & Water Services for the Public Sector
Pipefix are the preferred water contractor for a number of councils and public sector clients including Bournemouth Borough Council, Borough of Poole, Swindon Borough Council and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council. We achieve the required standards of Accreditation, Health & Safety and Insurance to work with any public sector body in the UK and are proud of our achievements for these clients.
In 2014 we mapped the water distribution system along 7 miles of seafront for Bournemouth Borough Council and produced a library of linked and referenced AutoCAD drawings marking the location, depth and material of all the water pipes, chambers and valves and which buildings they serve. We audit the entire system at each end of the peak tourist season to ensure that everything is working and compliant on one of the busiest beached in the UK.
As well as this type of flagship project we provide the day to day services that ensure the smooth operation of a variety of assets from housing through to leisure centres, public buildings and parks & gardens.
Our engineers are used to working on busy sites and can competently manage projects during term time if required.

From start to finish your staff were fantastic, especially considering the call was out of the blue with no notice. To have a team on site to put together a quotation and scope of works within a few hours was fantastic and everyone I spoke to and spent time with from the company was very accommodating of any queries that the scheme manager, residents or myself had. The two engineers who attended to do the main body of work were incredibly hard working and deserve a pat on the back for their efforts. On behalf of the residents at the scheme I would also like to pass on a large thank you for the limited disturbance of the supply.
