3 Things to Look For in a Borehole Drilling Company

If you are new to the industry and are looking to hire a borehole drilling company to help you with your project, it can be difficult to know where to start. We understand, as you are often met with so many contractors that all claim to be the “best people for the job” – but this is not always the case, and it is important to separate the wheat from the chaff and find the company that suits your specific requirements the best.

                        We thought we would help you out, as we know this can all seem overwhelming at first so we have outlined the top three things you should look for in a professional borehole company, and explore the borehole drilling services currently available here at Teckna Group.

                        What should I look for in a borehole drilling company?

1) Experience

It is important to note that borehole drilling is a specialised and technical process that needs to be done with precision. If it is done incorrectly, problems can quickly crop up with costly consequences. This is why it is a good idea to have the job done properly first time round, and to do a little research before you trust a borehole drilling company. Rather than hire the first company that you come across, take a look at a few different contractors and try to select a borehole company with proven industrial experience.

Here at Teckna Group, we boast over 35 years of experience in the industry and are a 3rd generation family-owned business and, having worked on countless private and commercial projects, we are now regarded as one of the leading borehole companies in the country.

2) Accreditations

When choosing a new drilling company, it is crucial to make sure they have the relevant certificates and accreditations. These not only verify the legitimacy of the business, but also confirmed their trustworthiness and their willingness to keep up-to-date with the latest industry developments.

For example, at Teckna Group we are both ISO9001:2015 registered and a corporate member of numerous, industry-related associations – such as the British Drilling Association, the National Federation of Builders, the British Safety Council, RoSPA and many more. We strive to continuously improve our knowledge and our services always adhere to the best industry practices.

3) Quality Control

A good borehole drilling company will make sure that they have a number of “quality control” measures in place. These are designed to check the safety and accuracy of the borehole that they have installed. These make sure that the job is completed to the highest possible standard, and are a good indication of a company who cares about their work.

Here at Teckna Group, we conduct a variety of tests throughout the borehole installation process. All of our geothermal boreholes are pressure-tested and own water boreholes are assessed for both the amount of water and drawdown available. Samples of the water will also be sent to a nearby UKAS laboratory, to be examined in line with strict government standards.

Our goal is to make sure our work is as good as it can be and these checks are in place for our peace of mind, to know that we’re doing a good job, just as much as yours so you know that you can rely on your new investment.
