As part of the expansion of Network Rail’s depot at Bletchley, installation of a new septic tank for the sewerage system was required.

After being directly engaged to the project by Jamieson Contracting, MGF’s Rail Sales Specialist met with the Jamieson and Network Rail teams both virtually and in person to firm the design and establish suitable equipment for the job. Once agreed, the temporary work solution was then designed and supplied to an approved brief.

The Solution

Working around the existing sewage treatment infrastructure, the tight site conditions, proximity to the rail lines paired with a groundwater run off into the neighbouring embankment meant MGF’s design solution needed to be focused on flexibility of the connecting component parts.

MGF supplied 5.5m KKD sheets with a frame comprising 203 and 254UC braces to suit the excavation at 8.4m x 3.8m x 4.85m deep.

The sheet and frame system was chosen as opposed to a box system as it was most suited to minimise deflection in the rail environment.

The service has been second to none. MGF personnel came to site as soon as we had a query, I cannot be more thankful to such a good company.

The Verdict

Once the tank had been successfully installed, further drainage connections were required with the potential for additional box systems on site.

Delivering the most appropriate kit to suit site conditions and ensuring that an economic but safe design solution was provided ensured that Jamieson Contracting were able to save time on their project delivery.
