Founded in 1984 H.D. Services Ltd. aim to provide the highest quality percussion drilled boreholes, sewage treatment systems and Open-Loop ground source heat pump installations in the Southeast. Feasibility of any project can generally be confirmed upon receipt of a site postcode.
We offer a one stop shop for self builders, developers, contractors, consultants and architects, providing waste and drainage solutions, independent water supplies and renewable heating options – all specifically tailored to meet individual needs and suited to the geology of the Southeast.
Sewage Treatment, Boreholes and Soakaways
We have been involved in the design, supply and installation of sewage treatment systems for over 30 years. We can either provide package solutions or we can design bespoke systems to meet individual client needs.
Projects undertaken throughout the southeast range from small solutions for single households to larger scale solutions for estates, business parks, farms, schools, caravan sites, hotels and public houses.
We offer a support service for consent to discharge applications to the Environment Agency - a requirement when installing sewage treatment systems.
All our boreholes are constructed using the cable-tool percussion method - preferred by the Environment Agency (EA) when drilling the chalk aquifer - and are logged with the BGS. Our underpinning ethic is that we want to protect the aquifers from which we make our living.
Ground Source Heat Pumps
We are award winning installers of Open-Loop GSHP installations. These systems utilise ground water as a heat source. Groundwater is pumped from a water supply borehole directly to the heat pump where temperature is extracted. The water is then returned to the aquifer, normally via a buried harvesting tank where it can start to regain this temperature. As ground water is utilised, there is the option of a potable water supply (subject to analysis and suitable filtration) or irrigation.
The heat pumps we install are manufactured by a British company and are MCS accredited. All our heat pump installations are designed to be Renewable Heat Incentive eligible, for which we provide application support and advice.
We achieved regional success in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 at industry awards. In 2020 we won the REA Pioneer Awards and this year we have achieved recognition at the East of England Energy Efficiency Awards, winning 2 categories as well as receiving a Special Commendation for one of our renewable heat installations at the 20/21 National energy Efficiency Awards, which were held on the 18th February 2022. Having never entered the national awards before, we are extremely proud to have been recognised for our involvement in this project.
The company is proud to employ land drillers, electricians, plumbers, civil engineers, heat pump engineers, graduates and fellows of the British Geological Survey.
We are members of the WDA, GSHPA, REA, EEA, NaCSBA and are ISO 9001, 14001 and MCS accredited.
