Glanville Cleansing Provide Vital Services Across South West
Glanville's Cleansing East team in Highbridge have been exceptionally busy over recent months carrying out a variety of works alongside our key clients in North Devon and Somerset regions including Wessex Water, Milestone, Bridge Civil Engineering, and the Environment Agency.
Nick Luke, Cleansing East Manager, and Chris Wall, Assistant Manager manage a team of 21 CCTV and Jetting operatives that cover a variety of works across the region from Sewer Cleansing at Hinkley Point to Highway CCTV Surveys in Bridgwater and emergency flood repairs in Bath.
Recently we completed a 5-week project alongside Milestone Infrastructure to survey and cleanse the highways drainage system, a project that is part of long-planned improvements to the Clink and Cross Rifles Junction in Bridgwater. Blockages and heavy silting along the main line foul sewer meant that this project was much more complex than previously thought and the requirement of temporary traffic management and lane closures meant that the safest option was to carry out the works during nightshifts in December and January.
Our teams produce the very best work in every situation they're thrown into, and in this instance working 25 nightshifts with two weeks below freezing temperatures was a challenge but they completed the work within the estimated framework time to the satisfaction of our client.
Viv Newsam from Milestone Infrastructure said, "Thanks to you and the team for getting this one completed in such atrocious weather!"
Every day comes with a challenge at Glanville, and New Year’s Day is no exception! Unfortunately for the residents of Entry Hill Gardens in Bath, a severe flooding event occurred that needed fixing immediately before more damage transpired. But the geographical location of the site posed a significant challenge for our teams to access and carry out the emergency works.
Upon surveying the cause of the flood, the team discovered significant calcite build-up within the drainage system and this was found to be the cause of the flooding incident. With emergency works required, Nick Luke, conducted a site visit with the client to devise a way we could safely set up the site, and once out together our partner BANES applied for an emergency road and footpath closure for the duration of the job.
With very little time to prepare, our teams got to work on the site for three days in early January, removing the flooding from the rear gardens of the residents of Entry Hill Gardens and restoring flows to the drainage system.
The client & residents were very thankful for a job “well done”!
