Specialist contractor Prater has secured a contract for the complete building envelope on the £63 million redevelopment of Woolston Wastewater Treatment facility. Located near to Southampton, the project will see the construction of a modern wastewater recycling plant to comply with the latest environmental standards.

The existing facility, which was built in 1966, no longer meets the current Environment Agency standards and requires modernisation. The redevelopment of the site by 4Delivery, a joint venture between Veolia, Costain and MWH Global, will conform to the stricter standards for water recycled into the environment and solve many of the odour issues encountered by local residents and businesses. The buildings have been designed to blend into the surrounding area and complement other developments already being built.

Prater has been selected to deliver the complete external building envelope. The complex geometry of the roofing and cladding design will require a tailored solution and as such, Prater will be collaborating with its partner BEMO. The roofing and cladding specialist will utilise BEMO's Monro standing seam system, which has the capability to produce the required shape and intended finish. Prater will begin work on site during summer 2017 with the project due for completion in 2018.

"We are delighted to have secured the contract at the Woolston site," commented Stephen Walker, Pre-Contracts Manager at Prater. "Our team was able to solve a variety of technical issues throughout the tender process and add value to the conceptual stage of what will be a very challenging project."
