Project updates

Hello everyone. In this update, I want to tell you about some reinstatement work we did at the Croft's Lane play park. Our site teams worked with Northumbrian Water to "give something back" to the local community.

We worked with Horsley Parish Council and our neighbours. We removed the debris and soil from the north east quadrant of the play park.

We levelled the topsoil and seeded the area.

We replaced a section of timber post and rail fence after the reinstatement works were completed.

Hello again. In today's update, I want to concentrate on one particular aspect of our works. That is checking the integrity of larger diameter underground pipes using CCTV surveys.

We used this piece of equipment to survey the inside of the new pipelines before we tested and commissioned them. It is a remote controlled CCTV unit.

The CCTV unit operator gets a real time view of the inside of the new pipes. The operator will check the integrity of the pipe and note anything of interest.

We checked all of our new pipes and all the pipes are ready for testing and commissioning. This is a major milestone in this project.

The testing of the pipes is progressing very well. We will be commissioning the pipes next. The site team has done very well to get the large diameter pipes ready to transport water.

The pipelines at the new structures are being tested. We will commission the pipes once the testing is complete.

The cable installation works are almost complete. The electrical testing is going very well. 

The installation of the access steelwork and construction of the site footpaths are going well.

Hello. In today's progress update, I want to concentrate on the civils works particularly surface water drainage and concrete footpaths.

We are continuing with installing the surface water drainage along the Central Corridor. We are making steady progress as there are a lot of underground services in this area.

We have started constructing footpaths around some of the new structures. We are working on the west and south elevations of these new structures.

We are continuing with the MEICA installations. We are connecting many types of plant and equipment into the control centres.

The site team is progressing well on many work fronts at the Horsley site.

Hello everyone. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year break. I want to update you about our return to work.

The site will work in line with the latest Covid restrictions issued by the Government on Monday 4th January 2021. We already have a safe system of work in place for these difficult times.

Site works restarted after the end of year break yesterday. We have an ambitious programme of works to deliver. The civils, MEICA and commissioning works have all restarted.

We are continuing with the hard landscaping works. This photo shows the new equipment that are being installed on the new concrete slabs south of the Rapid Gravity Filters.
