We are currently working with Severn Trent to deliver a £3m project designed to improve the sewer network and alleviate flooding in Nottingham City Centre.
Our wastewater infrastructure team are constructing an underground storage tank and deep weir chamber located on Shakespeare Street, near the Victoria Centre.
The 12.5m diameter x 18m deep tank has now been completed to depth and will protect the surrounding areas against rainfall and flooding events. In addition to the storage tank, a 7.5m diameter x 6m deep weir chamber will be constructed on top of the existing sewer in Shakespeare Street.
The two chambers will be connected by a 1.2m diameter overflow pipe, which is to be constructed by the pipe jacking method.
The area of the city centre is home to many Nottingham Trent University buildings and a number of these are listed buildings. Many properties in the area have basements and these works are key to prevent any future flooding occurring.
Works are due to complete by February 2020.
Roger Brailsford our Site Manager, said: “Working in a congested city centre location on a project of this scale comes with a host of obstacles. Not just the complex construction but the planning and enabling works, it is a challenge to stockpile materials and manage deliveries, which can only come in and out one way during specific times. We are very limited to a small compound and parking has been restricted and monitored.”
“We have worked hard with stakeholders including NTU and NCC to minimise disruption, there has been great interest in the work we’re doing here and public response is positive.”
