The construction of stormwater and drainage infrastructure is a core part of EPL’s business. Our pipe laying teams specialise in constructing pipe systems, manholes, control structures (inlet chambers, drop structures, bubble-ups, retention sumps, and outfalls), inline and endpoint treatment devices (interceptors, pollutant traps, and separators), pump stations and flood control structures. Our experience includes above-ground management and control systems; open channels, swale drains, retention ponds, flood control, and flood protection works.


EPL specialises in the installation, repair, and replacement of water supply, water distribution, and water distribution infrastructure. Our skilled and experienced project management, pipe-laying and construction teams are able to undertake a variety of work from routine maintenance and repair through to the construction of new pipelines, valve chambers, pump stations, bore heads, and water treatment facilities.


We have an impressive track record in the construction of residential drainage systems and heavy civil construction projects involving large-scale gravity sewers, rising main and pump stations. Our experience and skills in drainlaying, earthworks, deep excavation and dewatering make us the first choice for underground pipework for builders, developers, local authorities and construction companies.

We are well versed in a variety of road construction techniques for both bound and unbound pavements including cement stabilisation, asphalt paving, and chip sealing. Our approach to road construction demands sound planning, optimal management of resources and clear workflow to guarantee seamless project delivery and a quality outcome.
