The repair of reservoirs in five different works areas:

  • Cribbs Causeway Flood Storage Reservoir
  • Tubbs Botton Flood Storage Reservoir
  • Bruton Flood Storage Reservoir
  • Curry Moor Flood Storage Reservoir
  • Westford Flood Storage Reservoir

The project addressed issues highlighted by the flooding experienced on the Somerset Levels during the 2013/2014 winter.

The works were a result of recommendations by the reservoirs engineer following the floods and included: sheet piled cut-off walls, reinforced concrete headwalls, strengthening of earth structures such as dam crests and spillways and re-alignment of watercourses.

Whilst the construction activities were relatively straightforward the logistics of managing several remote sites concurrently were less so.

Knights Brown performed very well on this project in terms of quality, cost and time. The team worked very well as part of an integrated delivery team with the Employer to the benefit of the project

- Marc Bryan, Portsmouth City Council

Sites are always very well presented. First impressions count and if a site looks well organised and clean when you arrive then generally this is applied throughout the management of the projects. Indeed, all five projects I am Cummins PM for, have been managed to a high standard and equally the safety records and standards are very good.

- Iain Brooks, Cummins

Site staff were pleased to have had Knights Brown on the team, they were proactive from day one to the end towards potential issues and responsive to a changing site environment for works.
