We supplied wall sections for this sewerage treatment plant. Our use of crosswall construction meant the walls could come complete to site and be craned into position from the sea. They were then simply ‘stitched’ together at the joints creating a monolithic structure.
This method minimised the amount of fresh material on site as batching and distributing fresh concrete was extremely difficult.
The building was designed to blend in with the external environment so we used a rubber formliner system in the moulds to replicate a rock face pattern.
The complexity of the contract has been reflected in the fact that it won the ICE Major Project of the year for the South West.
