Enhancing Drainage at Bell Equine Veterinary Clinic: A Griffin Groundworks Case Study


At Griffin Groundworks, we take pride in delivering comprehensive solutions to address the unique needs of our clients. Recently, we had the privilege of working with Bell Equine Veterinary Clinic in Maidstone to improve their drainage system. The project involved the installation of a sophisticated Soakaway system, incorporating silt traps for effective water management. In this case study, we’ll delve into the challenges faced, our tailored solution, and the successful outcomes achieved.

The Challenge: Bell Equine Veterinary Clinic, known for its exceptional equine care, faced drainage issues that could potentially disrupt their daily operations. With the rainy season exacerbating the problem, the clinic needed a reliable drainage solution that would effectively manage excess water and prevent flooding in their premises. The existing drainage system was insufficient, leading to water pooling and inadequate water dispersion.

Our Tailored Solution: Understanding the significance of proper drainage in Maidstone’s unpredictable weather, we conducted a thorough site assessment to devise a tailored solution for Bell Equine Veterinary Clinic. Our team of experts designed a Soakaway system, complemented by silt traps, to address their specific requirements.

The Soakaway System: The Soakaway system is a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to managing surface water. It consists of a series of underground chambers filled with a porous material, allowing rainwater to gradually infiltrate the ground. This system effectively prevents water accumulation and flooding, protecting the clinic’s facilities and providing a safer environment for both staff and patients.

Incorporating Silt Traps: To enhance the efficiency of the Soakaway system, we incorporated silt traps. These traps are designed to capture and retain sediment and debris carried by runoff water before it enters the Soakaway. By preventing these pollutants from clogging the system, the silt traps ensure optimal performance and prolong the life of the drainage system.

Successful Outcomes: Griffin Groundworks successfully installed the Soakaway system with silt traps at Bell Equine Veterinary Clinic. The new drainage solution has significantly improved water management on the site, eliminating the risk of flooding during heavy rainfall. The clinic’s premises are now better equipped to handle excess water, creating a safer and more accessible environment for their staff and patients.
