Existing sewer systems
The design of drainage projects for water companies usually involves modifying an existing sewerage system. It is therefore very important to
fully understand this existing infrastructure and to make the most of what is already there so that a solution is arrived at which meets the
client's requirements and which is cost effective.
Balancing conflicting requirements
We aim to produce a 'good design' which balances the often conflicting requirements of hydraulic performance, 'buildability', construction cost and the
need for low maintenance to produce an overall cost effective design. We are also mindful of the possibility of using
techniques to alleviate problems where possible.
The design work would probably involve liaising with various interested external authorities, agencies and companies, as appropriate. It would also
involve the procurement of surveys (topographical, manhole, and environmental, etc) as necessary.
