  • 25 deep bore soakaways
  • Required for drainage at the University of Sussex
  • Collaboration with Balfour Beatty, Adenstar, Arup Engineers and Nicholls

About the project

We were contacted by Adenstar Developments to install 25 Deep Bore Soakaways at The University of Sussex.  These were needed for drainage as a part of a £150 million development to replace the University’s Halls of Residence on the Falmer Campus.

Drilling of the borehole and soak testing was completed by Nicholls alongside Balfour Beatty, Adenstar and Arup Engineers who also worked on this major development project for The University of Sussex.

“We found Nicholls to be very hands on and efficient on this challenging contract – we would be pleased to work with them again on future projects.”
