ACCORDING to Muswellbrook Shire Council, construction of the new Recycle Water Treatment Work is progressing well.
Council stated the project was on schedule and budget, while satisfying quality and safety requirements, among other expectations.
In September, the significant milestone of pouring the post tensioned single pour slab of the main process reactor (IDEA tanks) was undertaken.
This innovative construction technique proceeded as planned and with all risks mitigated.
“The concrete base pour marks a significant project milestone in the construction of the Muswellbrook Recycle Water Treatment Works (RWTW), a world-leading recycled water treatment solution that will see long term economic and sustainable benefits for the local community,” Downer’s project manager Mark Tildsley said.
“Local suppliers delivered more than 800 cubic meters of concrete and in close partnership with Muswellbrook Shire Council and the Downer team on the ground, the day ran smoothly with no incidents or injuries.”
The slab pouring was a milestone for council – their single largest ever concrete slab pour, comprising of 116 deliveries of concrete, from a fleet of 20 trucks, and two crews of more than 40 workers.
