Oxford Grove Tank Ilfracombe

Client: South West Water
Project Value: £450,000
Scope:

When Delta Civil Engineering was tasked to alleviate flooding at peak storm conditions, we decided that installing a segmental concrete storage tank would tackle the issue. We constructed the segmental concrete storage tank in a popular public car park within a tight 13 week programme. We had such a tight turn around due to the public car park needing to be back open to the public to use for the beginning of the summer season.

 

Hydraulically, the Construction of a 15m dia tank x 8m deep was needed. Initially, the tank was excavated to formation level with the first 3m battered. The installation of a 150 dia augerbored connection to the existing sewerage network then followed, after which the tank was lined up from base using precast concrete segments each weighing 3 tonnes. When lining was completed four roof beams, weighing up to 38 tonnes each and precast on site, were lowered into position using a 200 tonne crane. The project also required open cut works, manhole and CSO improvements and was completed on time.

 

Here at Delta Civil Engineering we welcome challenging jobs where tight turn around are needed. We have our own fleet of low loaders and open back Lorries ready to transport our equipment to your site now. Please enquire now to see how we can help turn your job around to the Delta way of working.
