Tuffnell Drainage was established, in Ellesmere, in 2002, by Warwick Tuffnell who has a long family history in the plumbing and drainlaying industry.


Now based in Izone, Rolleston, the business has grown to become a well known and respected medium sized company that undertakes residential, commercial and civil drainage and excavation work throughout Canterbury.

Utilising the combined industry knowledge and experience of Warwick and his team we strive to provide an efficient service producing quality results for our clients. We have well established relationships with large companies who continue to award us ongoing contracts due to our ability to provide the service they expect and workmanship we are prepared to stand by.

Our dedicated team of staff are experienced in all aspects of drainage and excavation work and we take pride in their ability to work efficiently alongside others, comply with relevant Health and Safety requirements, provide good communication and maintain tidy worksites.

The large range of machinery and equipment we have available means we always have the right ‘tools’ for the job whether it’s big or small and we only use quality products from reputable suppliers. Any subcontractors we use are carefully chosen in order to maintain our expected quality standards.

Tuffnell Drainage Ltd is Sitewise Accredited and a member of SiteSafe.

We welcome any enquiries regarding our services and look forward to working with new clients.
