Bagnalls recently improved the integrity and safety of a cess tank facility for Severn Trent Water. Regular inspections are made across the Severn Trent Water infrastructure and essential maintenance works are undertaken by Bagnalls, the nominated building maintenance and minor civils contractor. Planned and programmed works ensure that the integrity of any Severn Trent Water facilities, in areas accessible to the general public, are retained to meet high safety and security standards.
The project work included the replacement of the existing covers to the chambers and uprating the concrete cover to the cess tank. To further complicate matters, the site was located within the boundary of a local resident’s garden and therefore access for materials, labour and plant needed careful planning and logistics.
Working closely with Engineers from Severn Trent Water, a local plant hire company, a crane supplier, a local farmer and the homeowner, we managed to secure safe access for a two-tonne cover, ten tonnes of concrete and chippings as well as the other materials required to deliver the project specification. The completed work was within schedule and budget and to the complete satisfaction of all stakeholders.
