Gondolin Land & Water are excited to be working in collaboration with a prominent renewable energy developer and operator on an Anaerobic Digestion Site near Glasgow.
Two of Gondolin's directors, Zak Ritchie and Richard Lucey, conducted a site investigation to assess the plant's current drainage system. Drawing upon their extensive expertise in drainage design in Scotland, and their experience in AD developments including planning stage support, post-planning/consenting, detailed construction design, and construction site supervision, they concluded that the current drainage system is unfit for its intended purpose.
Tailored Solutions: Designing Sustainable Drainage Systems in Scotland
Our experienced Civil Engineers are now at work designing a holistic surface water and nature based wastewater drainage system (includings SuDs) for the Anaerobic Digestion plant. With a high possibility of future extensions on the site, this new system is being designed in a way to accommodate expansion.
The team will also be undertaking a Drainage Impact Assessment the support upcoming planning applications.
The project's focus is on upgrading existing areas and expanding the AD facility to enhance throughput. Our thorough review of current drainage arrangements has led to the development a holistic design that combines upgrades to the existing system with a bespoke plan for the proposed expansion, prioritizing operational efficiency and compliance. This will include hydrological / hydraulic modelling using industry standard drainage design software and preparing outline design drawings / details to demonstrate compliance to the relevant design standards.
As a climate-conscious company, contributing to projects that align with sustainable values is what we are all about.
