DRILLING WELLS AND BORES SINCE 1946
Richard’s father, Frank senior, wanted a well on the family property in Greenmeadows and engaged a local drilling contractor Mr T. G. Willan. Unfortunately, Tom Willan was unable to start drilling due to the lack of an assistant, so Frank senior volunteered Richard. Richard turned out to be very capable and was taken on permanently. Six weeks later, Tom had a heart attack and at age 17, Richard took over the business. Shortly after Richard and brother Frank, formed a partnership with their father as a sleeping partner and so Baylis Bros was formed. Dick and Frank snr bought out Frank jnr after a year or so, and then in 1954, Dick bought out Frank snr.
WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
Napier City Council (NCC) lost Bore Security status on our bores in early 2017.
With NCC review of our existing bore infrastructure against the Drinking Water Standard New Zealand (2008), some of the requirements were not being achieved.
We decided to raise some bores above ground and complete full conditional assessments on all bores. For bore raising NCC went out to two contractors and split the sites between them, due to the urgency of the works.
Baylis Brothers Limited were awarded the raising works (fabrication, installation, management of the water flow and traffic) on two of the three bore able to be raised.
After the raising works Baylis Brothers Limited were also awarded the conditional assessment of 7 NCC bores. This assessment included CCTV (before and after cleaning), cleaning of the casing and re-development of the bore, pressure testing of the casing and cable gland pressure testing on the bore raiser. All these works were required to provide evidence on the security of NCC bores. Baylis Brother provided a comprehensive report on these works for each bore.
All of the works completed by Baylis Brother Limited were instrumental in providing evidence to Napier Drinking Water Assessor that NCC bores were secure under the Drinking Water Standard New Zealand (2008).
I am highly impressed with Baylis Brother Limited work. They communicate well (with a quick reply time), are efficient onsite, great public interaction awareness with neighbours of the work site, very helpful with any situation that occurred onsite, they went beyond what was required in dealing with changes in scope. When working with Baylis Brothers Limited I was confident that the works met what was required.
