Lee Tunnel – Planning and Reference design
London, United Kingdom
Due to shifting weather patterns and greater population, London’s excess
sewage frequently overflows into the River Thames, which decreases oxygen
in the water and causes overall health risks. The Lee Tunnel is part of a new
40-kilometer storage-and-transfer network of tunnels below London that will
halve the volume of untreated discharges into the river.
The Lee Tunnel project comprises 7 kilometers of 7.2-meter internal diameter
tunnel and runs from Abbey Mills Pumping Station in West Ham to Beckton
Sewage Treatment Works. Faber Maunsell created a model of the pumping
station, tunnels, and adjoining shaft that was used as the basis for creating
visualization. Project Wise controlled the flow of data across the project team and
enabled potential reuse of the data for lifecycle management of the project.
MWH Global, Inc.
Brighton and Hove WWTP
Brighton, United Kingdom
This $300 million project provided interceptor sewers and three lift-pumping stations in Brighton, United Kingdom. M WH had overall conceptual
responsibility for the treatment works, pumping stations, and marine outfall.
M WH provided overall design coordination as well as detailed design of the
civil, architectural, and reinforced concrete at the treatment works and the
pumping sewerage systems’ station superstructures.
M WH relied on MicroStation, TriForma, PlantSpace, Bentley Architecture,
Bentley Structural, and Bentley Navigator to design systems serving a population
equivalent of 300,000. M WH also used Project Wise to collate, store, and version
control all of the CAD design files and drawings for this project and to launch
design models by a design team spread across multiple locations. The ability to
store files in one central, universally accessible data store proved invaluable.
