Groundsource Boreholes completed for local company.

Groundsource DrillingGroundsource Borehole Drilling

Aquasource (SW) Ltd have successfully completed 1280m of groundsource heat pump boreholes on one site for a local company at a project near Wadebridge in Cornwall.

The ‘down the hole hammer’ drilling technique was used to drill the holes.

The borehole comprise 10 number, 127mm diameter holes drilled to a depth of 120m.

There was also a requirement for an additional 80m hole for a separate system on site.

Because a design life of 25+ years was required  crack resistant polyethylene Geothermal probes were inserted into the holes.

To ensure maximum performance the boreholes were backfilled with thermally conductive material.

Header Pipework for Groundsource.

The  required header pipe linkup will also be carried out by Aquasource (SW) Ltd. 

This will involve the installation of an underground groundsource chamber manifold and all pipework needed to connect the boreholes to the manifold and from the manifold to the property.

All pipework will be joined using electrofusion techniques and pressure tested on completion.

Sea Wall Repair Completed in St Mawes

Sea Wall Repair

Aquasource have completed a sea wall repair to an exposed wall near the Henrician Castle at St Mawes in Cornwall.

Sea Wall Repair

Before :- Sea Wall damaged by storms

View of Sea Wall Repair


The Sea Wall had been damaged in the storms of February 2013 and our client had engaged Richard Holbrook as a structural engineer to design a cost effective solution. 

Aquasource were then engaged to carry out repairs to the sea wall in accordance with Richard Holbrook’s design.

Because  the is  wall just above the high water mark conditions were tricky.  The sea wall repair was to be undertaken in the depth of winter in an exposed situation.  M & M Scaffolders designed and installed a temporary working platform to allow safe access to the area at all states of the tide. The platform also had to modified to allow for the installation of the self drilling anchors. We were lucky with the weather and were able to complete the works in good time without much interference from mother nature.

The Works

The sea wall repair comprised the construction of a new wall along the base of the existing wall, the installation of self drilling rock anchors and crack stitching to the existing wall.

All materials had to be carried down several steep flights of concrete steps and all the concrete used had to mixed on site from materials carried to the site by wheelbarrow!

Additional works included the a small extra piece of sea wall and the rebuilding of a set of steps that had also been damaged in the storms to allow the client and his tenants easier access to the sea.
