Following a successful tender, Stonbury was engaged by a client to design a trash screen that incorporated a manually operated vertical penstock screen.
Stonbury was contracted to complete works along a tributary of the River Avon in Worcestershire. The works were necessary to maximise conveyance and improve the positive impact of the flood storage area upstream.
Stonbury was contracted to extend the life of a water tower in the South of England. This included the removal and replacement of the entire roof slab.
Due to a flood event inside a high voltage building, which was situated on a Water Treatment Works, Stonbury were asked to relocate the existing transformer onto a new concrete bunded base and waterproof the building to prevent future ingress.
Earlier in the year, we began carrying out repairs to a failing reservoir which showed signs of severe water ingress. The original scope included 180 linear meters of crack repairs. However, following an inspection, this increased to more than 300.
Stonbury was contracted to carry out repair works at a ‘Water Recycle Centre’ (WRC) to extend the life of the existing filter channels and outlet chamber.
Following a condition appraisal, Stonbury were contracted to complete refurbishment works to an existing reed bed, constructed to treat the leachate from a capped putrescible tip. Reedbeds provide a relatively low-cost solution to treat a range of effluents and they produce fewer carbon emissions than using traditional civil and process engineering technology.
Working with an ecologist, Stonbury recently cleared 650 metres of dry channel, including the removal of obstructions to flow. Site won, green materials were then used to enhance the stream. Gloucester Wildlife Trust commissioned this work as part of the ERDF Wild Towns Project, which had been developed to create, connect and enhance green spaces for wildlife across Gloucestershire.
Stonbury were contracted to build a full-height division wall to create two separate compartments inside a potable water reservoir. This was due to the high demand for supply, which meant the tank could not be taken out of service for inspections and maintenance works.
Stonbury completed refurbishment works to extend the life of a 40ML underground service reservoir which indicated signs of severe ingress from rainwater.
