Water Well Boreholes

Over the last 30 years we have helped both domestic and commercial clients to realise the benefits of private water supplies. In that time, we have worked with everyone from public sector organisations to multi-national corporations and even isolated households. And we are proud to say that no matter how big or small the requirement we always maintain the highest standards for customer service.

Not only can drilling boreholes help to provide sustainable water source for both residential and commercial use, but boreholes can also be used in environmental assessments, construction and more.

A water supply borehole can give a constant and cost-effective flow of high-quality water at mains pressure. If you think your household, business or initiative could benefit from a borehole, get in touch with our team today to find out more about what we can do for you.

    As experts in our field we work closely with our clients right from the start of a project to the very end. Our turnkey drilling solutions include design, construction, development, test pumping, installation, commissioning and licensing. We also work with clients to ensure compliance with all legal requirements for licensing and reporting.

    We use state-of-the-art CCTV cameras and the latest technologies to carry out accurate geophysics and deviation surveys.

    Groundsource and Minesource Drilling Services

    Groundsource energy is a renewable energy source that is growing in popularity as the UK looks to move away from fossil fuels. Groundsource energy can be used in both the heating and cooling of buildings using either closed loop or open loop boreholes.

    At Drilcorp we have been involved in a number of recent projects requiring the construction of boreholes drilled into old mine workings. Among these is the UK Geoenergy Observatory in Glasgow where BGS and other centres of learning are currently studying minesource as an effective source of green energy and heat management.

    Geotechnical and Exploration

    We specialise in gaining access into difficult sites for clients in need of geotechnical and exploration services. From mineral exploration to well monitoring, borehole surveys to soakaways, our expert team use rotary top drive track-mounted geotechnical drilling rigs and tracked compressors, which are ideally suited for challenging sites. 

    Our drillers all have BDA NVQ accreditation and we possess a full range of geotechnical sampling equipment with capability of reaching up to 500 metre depth.

    Our clients

    We’ve worked in a variety of sectors, including food and drink, mineral, oil and gas, hospitals, golf courses, farming and agriculture, government bodies, geo consultants, and many more.

    Our team of engineering experts are unwavering in their dedication to providing the very highest level of service to our clients. Every single service we offer is delivered in a timely, professional and cost-effective manner.
