Highlights & Innovations

  • Comdain worked collaboratively with the client to develop an innovative commissioning plan that allowed for full pump station operation alongside Site Acceptance Testing activities.
  • Comdain proposed an alternate construction method for inlet and outlet pipework to be undertaken as HDD in lieu of micro tunnelling. This provided a cost saving to client and reduced project duration.
  • The architectural façade provided challenges as all recycled timber works had to be pre-fabricated prior to mounting on the building walls.
