Waste Treatment Site, Avonmouth

Project: New Earth Solutions Group Ltd, Avonmouth

System: Energy Building Valley gutter Stainless steel siphonic roof drainage refurbishment

Date: Completed March 2013

New Earth Solutions are renewable energy specialists who take an environmentally – friendly approach to business and expect the same standards from their contractors. Siphonic Solutions won this contract on account of being knowledgeable, flexible and vitally- value for money.

This building had an existing siphonic system in place which was leaking considerably and was not suitable for the high temperatures for waste energy recycling. Therefore not only was a new and improved system essential, it was needed urgently.

Siphonic Solutions were on hand to offer solutions and complete the project in a timely manner. In addition to the specific rainwater calculations, the design had to suit the high temperatures within the plant. Our design technician, draughtsman and rainwater consultant worked with our director who met with the client and surveyed the site, in order to create the best practical solution for the building’s and the client’s requirements. Team meetings with site operatives ensured the process was scheduled and ran smoothly. Health and safety matters were taken care of through surveys and our documentation, along with the help of our professional consultant.

The siphonic system was completely re- designed to optimise its functioning. Siphonic Solutions suggested an upgraded siphonic pipework system made from stainless steel be installed which would cope with high temperatures, be efficient and cost – effective. Disruption to premises can often mean disruption to business, but Siphonic Solutions planned the project so that the roof drainage would continue to work during the refurbishment works. Site managers managed the health and safety matters and the project was completed on time, within the budgeted costs.
