Borehole Drilling & Well Drilling Services
Teckna Group are an industry leading water well drilling company. We design and provide well-drilling services, geothermal drilling, water boreholes, soakaway boreholes and monitoring boreholes across the United Kingdom.
For applicable projects, we also install GSHP borehole connecting pipework and manifold chambers. This applies to systems that require flushing and cleaning of the pipework, glycol addition and design.
At Teckna Group, we pride ourselves on providing a start to finish service, covering all aspects of the job at hand. We design, specify and install water boreholes complete with filtration, pumping and control equipment. The experienced team of borehole experts at Teckna Group have dealt with a wide range of projects – both private and commercial.
All work is completed to the highest standard possible; utilising UK leading manufacturers and suppliers such as MGS & Boode. Our suppliers work to UK industry standards or higher for water well and ground source heat products.
Our drilling equipment is specifically designed for what we drill and comes from leading manufacturers such as Hutte and Comacchio. Our mud treatment units, which enable us to keep the drilling site clean, are from Tibban and Comacchio.
Specialised Grouting equipment designed for geothermal drilling allows us to test the loops prior to installation and then mix the grout to design specifications. Following this, we inject into the borehole to provide a properly functioning GSH Borehole Loop.
We also carry and maintain the following insurances for projects we undertake:
- Employers liability – £10million
- Public liability – £5 million
- Products & Pollution liability – £5 million
- Professional indemnity – £1 million
- Contractors all Risk – £250,000

How is a borehole drilled?
Borehole drilling creates a deep but narrow hole in the ground. Once the drilling is complete the borehole is then secured and reinforced with steel. At Teckna Group
we ensure the efficient completion of your borehole drilling project. Once our expert team of hydrologists have assessed the type of ground we are working on we get to work. We have a wide range of drilling equipment
perfect for a variety of environments and ground types. We are able to provide the best possible standard of borehole drilling
to make sure that our customers are happy with our service at all times. Our experts have years of industry experience and are able to give you a professional, high quality service from start to finish.
How much does it cost to drill a borehole?
The cost of your borehole will depend on a variety of factors. They include the depth of the hole, the pump system and the wellhead used as well as the amount of water you will need. Here at Teckna Group, we always look to provide a competitive price for your borehole drilling
project, to ensure that you receive the best value for money on the market. We would love to give you a straight up price, but the total depends on so many factors that we have to take into account beforehand. Contact

How deep should a borehole be?
A water borehole installation
is normally drilled to depths between 50 and 70 metres. In certain cases, however, boreholes can be as deep as up to 200m. The depth will be determined by the location of the hole and the geology of the area. Here at Teckna Group, we are full of experience in the area, and have drilled holes of varying depths over our years as a service. As a result, we are fully prepared to drill as deep as needed to give you the best possible borehole drilling outcome.
How long does a borehole last?
A properly constructed and maintained borehole drilling project will last for many, many years. As the technology used to drill the holes, and to line them, improves the lifespan of a borehole increases with it. New lining materials are better equipped to prevent a borehole from collapsing. You can rest assured that you are making a safe investment when looking to benefit from borehole drilling. Despite the testing conditions that they are inevitably going to be placed under, they are more than able to cope due to the strength and durability of the materials involved.
Do I need permission to drill a borehole?
Anyone who is a landowner in the UK is legally entitled to extract water from a borehole for their own use. However, depending on if you wish to use more than 20,000 litres a day you will need to obtain an abstraction licence from the government. You will need ground analysis for where you wish to install a borehole before any work begins. Please get in touch to arrange a water borehole prognosis
. We can assist you with the whole borehole drilling
process from start to finish. There is nothing we haven’t seen before, so if you are having difficulties at any point of proceedings, then our experts will happily be on hand to help you obtain permission if you need it.
How often should borehole water be tested?
At Teckna Group, we recommend borehole water is tested at least every 12 months. We are experienced in performing the relevant tests, so if you feel like a test is on the horizon, please get in touch with us and we will gladly come out and perform it for you. Once we have finished the construction of your borehole, we will test the water produced at a UKAS laboratory to ensure that it is safe to use from the outset. We perform both chemical and bacterial tests and analysis and he results we are given will determine the type of filters you will need to have fitted. We are extensive in our approach to our service and will always look to give you the best standard as possible. This means doing all the necessary checks and tests throughout the whole process, so we can leave you in capable hands once this is complete.
