Northumbrian Water Limited Bran Sands PTA Biogas

Faithful+Gould has delivered a £1m upgrade project on time and within budget for major water company, Northumbrian Water Limited (NWL), providing ECC project management and cost management services at Bran Sands Sewage Treatment Works (STW). It involved placing a new gas holder, pipeline and dehumidifier on the 52-acre site to improve the efficiency and environmental sustainability of NWL's operations.

Bran Sands STW treats 300,000 cubic metres of waste every day, therefore minimal disruption to the site was of optimum importance. Regular operational meetings forced careful planning at an early stage of the programme allowing all parties a clear understanding of the challenges, proposed methodology and actions required to ensure success.

Charles Harman, NWL’s Project Manager for the works, said: "Faithful+Gould played a very full part in this success, managing the design and construction contract in a very professional manner, and effectively dealing with a number of challenges during the implementation phase."
