Davyhulmepic

The Davyhulme Waste Water Treatment Works is the largest plant in the northwest serving over 1.1 million people. The modernisation of the site involves significant reclaiming of abandoned land, with the construction of six circular primary settle tanks, a large activated sludge plant as well as 10 circular final settlement tanks.

The upgrade is also a milestone for the further advancement in wastewater treatment, by using the most modern design and construction techniques such as building information modelling (BIM) and design for manufacturing and assembly (DfMA). This will involve a larger proportion of time invested into design and prefabrication of the plant in advance off site, and allow construction of a plant of this size faster than ever, while impacting the surrounding environment as least as possible.
