Established in 1998 and formerly known as Ken Vince Associates with many years’ experience as independent consultants to the land drainage industry. Drainage & Groundwork Partnership has evolved as a new organisation that provides both consultancy and contractual services. Based in Kent we cover the South East with the consultancy part of the business operating throughout the country.

We now offer a full advice, design, planning, construction and installation package using our small group of trusted and very experienced local sub-contractors.
