Civil & Infrastructure

New treatment works for Wessex Water.

 

Designed to replicate a stone barn, the steel framed building on piled foundations is clad with a blockwork cavity wall with a natural stone facing and bespoke oak doors beneath a roof of Cotswold slabs over a profiled metal underlay.

Sewage treatment for Sanders Garden World, Brent Knoll.

 

To improve the sewage disposal system at Sanders Garden World a 39,000 litre proprietary GRP tank was installed below ground at the site. Robust temporary works were required to maintain an open excavation within the upper layers of the soft alluvium deposits in the area and the tank was provided with sufficient concrete encasement to resist buoyancy when empty and a flanged top to prevent sinking when full.

New entrance to housing estate, Taunton.

 

Section 106 of the planning agreement to develop land for housing in Taunton required the developer to upgrade sections of the existing public highway in the vicinity of the development. DEA were employed to produce construction details for a new bellmouth entrance to the site, new bus laybys, new toucan crossing and new links to the existing cycle network. Within the site itself DEA detailed the new roads and sewers to serve the development, which have now been adopted by the relevant authorities.

Easyfit, Winterstoke Road, Weston Super Mare.

 

This steel framed building incorporates a two storey glazed screen to display an actual size replica of a formula one racing car that hangs from the structure.

David Edwards Associates won an award for this scheme from the Weston-Super-Mare Civic Society.
