Kijlstra precast helps with Glasgow waste water improvement project

Posted: Thursday 10th November 2016

Kijlstra has supplied a variety of precast concrete drainage products to Scottish Water’s SR15 Waste Alliance partner ABV which comprises Amey and Black & Veatch.

Structures being installed at various sites in and around Glasgow are the pre-assembled Vario CSO chambers, which measure up to 5m x 3m, plus larger CSOs and holding tanks constructed using Kijlstra’s panel system.

At Elmvale Row, just north of the city centre, Amey Black & Veatch is installing three structures. These are a screen chamber, flow splitter chamber and a valve chamber assembled using components from Kijlstra’s panel system. The screen chamber and flow splitter chambers have already been installed.

The contractor is also constructing two 25m-diameter underground storm water storage tanks as segmental shafts at this location using a caisson system.

At nearby Avonspark Street, a similar tank constructed from Kijlstra’s Vario range has also been installed.

South of the city at Hugh Murray Grove in Cambuslang, Amey Black & Veatch has constructed a CSO using a combined insitu/precast design. Kijlstra precast panels have again been used here to create the base slabs and roof slabs.

Close by in the Rutherglen district, Amey Black & Veatch is installing a large CSO, once again using the panel system. This chamber, with internal dimensions of 5.1m x 2.7m and 4m in depth, is currently in production at Kijlstra’s factory in Henlade, Somerset.

All these works form part of the Waste Water Alliance which is Scotland-wide and provides both sewer flooding and aesthetic (quality of discharge to water courses) solutions.

Kijlstra has been nominated as a preferred supplier during SR15 and its products have already been installed on numerous other contracts.

A Kijlstra CSO chamber was installed for Scottish Water more than five years ago for a scheme in Edinburgh. Several more CSO chambers were subsequently installed in the Greater Glasgow area under SR10 by civil engineering contractor George Leslie.

All the Kijlstra products installed on the current project have been supplied under a framework agreement with heavy side builders’ merchant Keyline. Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE
