Halcrow is helping Northern Ireland Water improve services for its customers under a key capital projects delivery framework.
Since being appointed regional project manager in 2004, Halcrow has successfully steered the delivery of projects to a value of £45 million, with a further £20 million projected for completion by the time the framework ends in 2012.
In this role we represent the client throughout the appraisal, design, construction, commissioning, performance testing and handover processes. Projects comprise both infrastructure and non-infrastructure works, ranging in value from £250,000 up to £5 million.
As well as liaising with statutory consultees and serving as Construction Design and Management co-ordinator, Halcrow provides contract management, programme control, cost management/control and process engineering services.
Projects range in complexity from pipelines and pumping stations through to replacement wastewater treatment works, including oxidation ditches, activated sludge and rotating biological contactor processes.
To date, we have helped manage the delivery of a range of infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects, including:
Claudy wastewater treatment works
The new permanent works for the Claudy catchment include installation of new rising mains and gravity sewers and the construction of a new activated sludge works. The project also involves the demolition and removal of the existing treatment plant and structures at Claudy, as well as existing works at Clagan, Killycor, Glenshane and Kilcunbrack.
Derrylin wastewater treatment works
This project involves the design and construction of a new wastewater treatment plant on the site of the existing Derrylin WwTW, including construction of access roads, concrete hard-standings, control buildings, landscaping and accommodation works.
Islandbank pumping station and sewer
A new sewerage sub-catchment within Newry city centre was created through the design, construction and commissioning of new pipeline infrastructure and pumping stations.
Designed to deliver one of the recommended solutions within the Newry drainage area plan, the project involved the construction of a 2,000 l/s foul and storm water pumping station, a 1.5km-long, 750mm-diameter trunk sewer, street sewer replacement, a submersible pumping station and a flood defence scheme.
