Smoothing the Way for Fast Adoptions on Your Development

Seamless adoption of highways, sewers and public open space on your development can make a crucial difference to profitability.

The quicker adoption takes place, the less costs you incur.

TDS Group will apply their years of experience and make your site adoptions their number one priority.  Because we’re not distracted by the everyday events on site, we’ll work uninterrupted to achieve adoption in the shortest possible time.

And you can call on TDS Group right from the outset of your project.  Our expert engineers will work in partnership with you to ensure that every aspect of your development conforms to the latest legislation and Local Authority guidelines, further reducing the chances of delays in the process.

Furthermore, where necessary we’ll liaise with the Local Authority and your contractors, managing road and footpath surfacing and ensuring that all street furniture and ancillary structures are in place and working correctly.

Likewise we’ll liaise directly with the Local Water Authority to ensure that all aspects of the development’s drainage system, including the sewers, manhole covers and ancillary structures are inspected and finished to an adoptable standard.

Allowing TDS to take on responsibility for these aspects gives you the freedom to focus on designing and constructing your development; safe in the knowledge that adoption will run smoothly and cost-effectively.

Remember, TDS can help you:

  • Reduce costs and increase profits by reducing your bond liability/overun charges and maintenance expense
  • Reduce your un-adopted sites – saving you money!
  • Let you focus on your key areas of expertise

As Built Surveys

One of the essential requirements to progress any adoption on completed developments is to provide an As Built Survey, which can be requested by Adopting Authorities in relation to Sewers, Highways or even Public Open Space. TDS Group have a partnering arrangement with MK Surveys who we beleive are one of the best survey companies in the country. They offer excellent levels of service and produce detailed and accurate survey drawings to the standard required by the adopting authority at very competetive rates. Through our relationship we can provide site specific quotations or a schedule of rates based on length of highway or number of manholes to be adopted.

Further details of MK Surveys can be found on their website at
