Esh Construction invests £1.5m to launch new division

15 jobs have been created by the firm’s new delivery arm, Esh Drainage Solutions

A new delivery arm which will specialise in providing complete drainage solutions to the commercial and utility sectors has been launched by Esh Construction.

The North of England firm has invested £1.5 million to create Esh Drainage Solutions which will deliver planned and reactive trenchless drainage maintenance, repairs, and cleansing services.

More than 15 new jobs have also been created, including operative, administrative, trainee and management roles, with this number set to increase in the coming months.

Operating across the North East and Tees Valley, Esh Drainage Solutions will enhance the delivery offering of Esh Construction and will use the latest and most environmentally friendly technology to offer trenchless solutions for drain repairs.

Services will include CCTV surveys, high pressure water jetting, sonar tracing, drain and sewer unblocking and cleansing, as well as UV Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining, Bluelight LED lining, localised patch repairs and robotic cutting.

David Pratt, divisional director at Esh Construction, said: “Officially launching Esh Drainage Solutions is a huge milestone for Esh and is testament to a significant amount of hard work which has gone on behind the scenes to make it possible. At a time of growing uncertainty within the economy, it is great to welcome a full new team into Esh through the creation of 15 jobs.

“Esh Drainage Solutions will bolster our offering to clients across frameworks and internally to our group divisions, giving us the capability to self-deliver trenchless drainage solutions while building on the solid foundations we have with supply chain partners to collaboratively provide a complete approach to drainage repairs and maintenance.”

Significant investment in equipment to date has grown the division’s kit and fleet to include CCTV and vactor units, Bluelight lining system, patch lining equipment and jetting units.

Pratt added: “In the coming weeks we will add bespoke designed UV Lining and lateral cutting rigs to our fleet which will be key to offering less intrusive trenchless methods and improved customer service for our clients.”
