Build Over Sewer Agreements

If you are planning any type of development, building something new or expanding an existing building, you should check to see if there is anything underground that can be affected, i.e. water or sewer lines. Our real estate research team can provide maps showing the location of our assets. There are certain circumstances in which we must agree on a formal building over agreement. It is a legal document that is put in place to protect sewers/sewers and allows us to access the pipe in case of a problem. The first point is that a construction agreement applies only to sewers and public sewers. A construction agreement allows the water company to ensure that the work to be carried out will not adversely affect the underlying sewers and ensures that the water company continues to have sufficient access to the canal for repair and maintenance. If you plan to build nearby or via a public sewer, you should contact the water company before carrying out the work to determine its needs. I must be aware that there are certain situations where it will not be allowed to be built by a canal. – Growing pipes are pressurized sewers that pump sewage or rainwater.

The cost of bypassing or improving pumps is very high and would probably not be cost-effective for small projects. – Wells are not allowed inside the building due to the increased risk of flooding or odours. It must be moved outside the building to obtain permission. – Strategic Water Themse The canal`s enemies are the most important in the remediation infrastructure and cannot be built. The design of the structure must be adapted accordingly to avoid the effects on these pipes. – It is unlikely that a construction agreement will be granted for a new independent development. Instead, the sewers must be diverted at the expense of the person doing the work. – Connecting a new property to a canal may require permissions and sometimes even Thames Water work.

– Further studies are needed to build stacked foundations and build with at least twice the diameter of the stake or 1.5 m (depending on the larger amount) from the outside of the pile to the outside of the canal. – Powered piles are not allowed within 15 metres of public sewers. Once the type of sewer is established, much of the coordination and processes can be unloaded by architects, statisticians and contractors. The construction of Class 1 tubes can generally be overcome by unactive and architectural details discussed with extras or contractors. The ability to address the waste pipe early in construction will lead to the appearance and feel of the building, as you have planned, as well as to save money and time as soon as construction begins on site.
