Drainage for diversification
Faced with significant financial pressure, many farmers are looking at ways to generate new income by diversifying into camping or glamping, opening a farm shop or converting unused outbuildings into office space or craft workshops.
Whenever building work is undertaken, a drainage scheme is required. As well as being specialists in on-farm drainage installation, DMJ has an impressive track record of working with civil engineering clients. So, if you’re thinking of introducing a caravan site, horse menage or a farm shop with car parking, DMJ has the skills, expertise and machinery you need.
Where access is restricted, such as orchards, paddocks or sports fi elds, we utilise the unique capabilities of our new Mastenbroek 10/12D Sportsfield. Recognised globally as the leading sub-surface drainage trencher for varied sports turf applications, the 10/12 D Sportsfield is engineered for precision on-grade trenching with excavated spoil removed via a conveyor to leave a clean turf surface.
Diversification requires investment in new machinery and resources. We know. We have a policy of continued reinvestment into our fleet. We only use specialist machinery – designed specifically to operate effectively in challenging, specialist environments. For example, our Mastenbroek 10/12D has a compact footprint for working in small-scale areas while delivering exceptional precision-grade sub-surface drainage.
We have been asked to complete on several occasions, professional Horse Menage Arenas. A lot of care and planning is required to design and construct a Menage that is adequate for horse training or competitions.
We work closely with the client to work within their budget. Allowances need to be made for the size and we tailor this specification to fit in with the surroundings. Careful construction is essential and the importance to include a comprehensive drainage scheme is paramount. It is crucial to channel water away from the surface as quickly as possible.
Planing is as important, and we will work with the client and authorities to ensure all engineering details covering drainage, construction, fencing and detail of water runoff will be directed will be provided. Full drawings will be made and provided accordingly.
An end result will be a high quality scheme built to last the client for years!
