Riddwood Consulting Engineers were contacted by UKDNWaterflow (LG Group) in order to provide a design for the renewal of anexisting rail drainage design near Minster Station in Kent.

The Drainage Design Process

The talented team at Riddwood Consulting Engineers designeda drainage renewal scheme for the defective system which was already inexistence.

After completing an initial survey, our team produced ascheme design for the location of catch-pits (also known as man-holes) and theexact depth of drainage pipes. Thanks to this information, the Riddwooddesigner was able to prescribe gradients for the drainage system.

The team also made use of the virtual data on the VirtualSite Visit (ViSiVi) interface. Riddwood combined this data with the GNSS survey and the CCTV survey. Additionally, this project was developed using TeklaTEDDS, Microsoft Excel, and AutoCAD 2017.
