Campbeltown Waste Water Quality Project

Contractor: Black & Veatch
Client: Scottish Water
This final phase of a waste water improvement scheme required the extension of an existing treatment works outside the town, the extension of the town centre pumping station and the provision of new large diameter sewers in three locations.
The extent to which this site team was prepared to go with considerate construction was evidenced in their complete redesign of part of the works to reduce the overall size and visual impact when seen from the coastal path and across the bay. A further redesign was undertaken for the town sewer paths to avoid causing traffic congestion. To ensure that the access for diverted traffic was suitable for purpose, the team tested it with a fully-loaded forestry lorry, and in the process of town centre excavations, unrecorded services were mapped, colour-coded and passed on to the local authority.
Ivor Goodsite visited the local primary school and the winning entries from a poster competition were displayed on site hoardings. A large shed was donated to the community organic garden together with 10 tonnes of chippings for a voluntary group, and company volunteers helped out as stewards at the Kintyre Run.
These and many other detailed initiatives prompted the Scheme Monitor to comment: "The site management showed consistent enthusiasm to go one step further. From design innovations to integrating and helping the community, nothing has been too much trouble".
