Client – Ashlyns School

Location – Berkhamstead, Hertfordshire

Contract Duration – Two days work

Task Appointed – Water Main Alterations


Highlights of Services Supplied Included –

Our engineers attended the site to start the required watermain changes on school premises.

We supplied and assembled a new MDPE water main to connect to a cast iron pipe and laid it out to follow the route of the new gas main pipework. To do this, we stopped the water flow with our pipe freezing services.

The next day, our engineers were in the school’s plantroom, we removed all the old 100mm cast iron pipework and supplied new cold water mains pipework.

We applied pipe freezing, to allow us to isolate the pipework and install a valve at the point of entry. Lastly, we allowed the pipework freeze to thaw, then checked for leaks.

After leaving the trench outside was to be filled in by others.



Our team attended the school during normal working hours to carry out the works and we ensured everything was left in good working order including all safety checks were made.

The site was left clean and tidy, all redundant items were disposed of at a licensed refuse/recycling facility.

Ashlyns School were happy again with the works carried out by IDWe Ltd.
