Drop Kerbs

Initial Systems Ltd are fully qualified to install drop kerbs to local authority standards. We are recommended and approved by Kent County Council and the Kent Highways Agency. The construction of a dropped kerb must be approved by your local council and carried out by a local authority approved contractor, such as ourselves. 

We work closely alongside Kent County Council to install drop kerbs in the wider Kent region.  Our drop kerbs can be made in various surface materials, such as: 
Tarmac - Tarmac is a very affordable surfacing material that is quick to install, easy to maintain and highly durable. 
Concrete - A concrete drop kerb is exceptionally strong and long-lasting, resistant to weathering and heavy traffic. 
Block Paving - Block paving is a very aesthetically-pleasing choice that improves kerb appeal and comes in a number of styles.


Sewer Connections

Initial Systems is fully accredited to carry out the complete storm and foul sewer connections from the existing facility provided to the new site. From traffic management through to final connection we obtain all the relevant drawings and plans for your application process. We submit all applications to Local Water Authorities (Section 106) & Local Councils (Section 50) producing Risk Assessments and Method Statements for their approval. Once permissions are granted Initial Systems liaise with the authorities to arrange start dates and inspections.

For any excavations at depth, it is necessary to utilise a specialist earthwork support system. Initial Systems regularly install these on their customers behalf and ensure that safety is consistently made number one priority across any given project.

Our workforce have been carrying out these works for many years for various clients, including both small and large projects. The company is committed to both Health and Safety and consistently achieving client satisfaction. A “hands-on” project manager takes a personal interest in each and every project, ensuring procedures/applications are correct whilst attending site to assess and reinforce good practice. The attention to detail and customer-focus from the “man at the top” cascades down throughout the business.



Line markings

Our Road Marking services include but are not limited to road lines, car park lining, school safety markings, company logos, roundels, directional arrows, health and safety markings, symbols and hatching.

Our Road Marking experts will conduct a full site survey and make recommendations based on Health & Safety compliance and cost efficiency.

We have an extensive knowledge applying markings and surfacing to all types of car parks whether underground, multi-storey, new, old or even temporary.
