3-Waters Infrastructure

What we do

3-Waters Infrastructure

Camex has been specialising in council and commercial drainage since 2008. We have steadily built up our specialised capacity in 3 waters infrastructure with a
highly competent project management team with an average experience of 23 years in water and drainage projects. Camex are highly regarded as a provider of our services to councils, construction companies and other civil contractors alike.

We specialise at laying all types of pipe including concrete, PVC, Clay, MDPE, HDPE, fibreglass and concrete lined steel. Our specialist team can install using either trenchless methods using directional drilling and open cut trenched methods at depths in excess of 6 metres. We are experienced in managing the environmental requirements for deep-cut trenching operations and controlling high water tables by means of de-watering. We have our own Lamella Clarifier units for silt control of the dewatering process.

Camex installs a complete range of pump stations to client specific requirements. From small residential allotments to large urban bulk watermains, sewer and stormwater networks, Camex Civil can provide a expert 3 waters installation.

I have been acting as engineer to the contract for a residential development in Hamilton that has been progressing over the last 3 construction seasons.
Overall I have been very impressed with Camex’s performance and am willing to recommend them as a contractor for similar scale development projects. Of the larger contractors that I have dealt with, I tend to find them more relationship oriented and more inclined to work collaboratively to achieve best outcomes for the principal. By and large I have tended to enjoy working with them more than many other contractors I have been involved with.

I struggle to fault them for their health and safety performance. In nearly 3 years on this project they haven’t had any significant incidents of note. This is quite an achievement considering the work has involved some technical challenges including earthworks directly under low powerlines and drainlaying in a live collector road. In each of these cases they have used plant appropriate to the task to minimise risk and followed correct process in terms of notifications and standovers etc. We have also faced the unexpected discovery of asbestos on the site and they have followed correct process right through that journey.
