Working alongside Scottish Water – An External View

Working Alongside Scottish Water
Brian Campbell,
Connections
2energy
In the latest edition of Scottish Water’s e-Buzz, our very own regional manager for Scotland Brian Campbell was interviewed.
Please see below the interview where Brian shares his experience, challenges and the biggest positive of 2017 working with Scottish Water.

Can you tell us about your experience working with Scottish Water?

Over the years I have been fortunate enough to say I have worked both internally and laterally externally with Scottish Water. My experience working with Scottish Water, or to be more precise, Strathclyde Water started in June 1991 as a Junior Operative which was the training scheme the business ran to recruit trainee personnel who would grow and develop the skill sets required to progress into various departmental roles. I was with Scottish Water in various roles from main layer to development manager for just over 23 years before venturing on to learn multi-utility. My experience this year from a
consultancy view has been widely positive from various aspects since the business I manage in Scotland, Connections2energy, straddles practically every technical department from WIA project management, WIRS design, completing applications and
delivering newly constructed assets for adoption both on and off-site for the developer community in conjunction with our partners.

What changes have you witnessed and how has Scottish Water
adapted to the current demand?

The housing market in general has changed significantly since exiting the economic downturn with everyone expecting much more in a far shorter time than ever before to meet with the housing shortages, both private and affordable. This has led to enormous pressure on developers, consultants and Scottish Water to move concept site designs into actual homes. No one could really have anticipated that the upturn in the housing market would accelerate at the pace it has reached. However, it has allowed Scottish Water to introduce new teams and processes which look at assets that serve land which hasn’t even been zoned for housing, triage, PDE’s for new applications and a new vesting team. All of these new innovative steps in the process will help everyone at each stage progress at the pace expected from customers.

The biggest positive from 2017?

The biggest positive from 2017 for Connections2energy was being able to work for Barratt / David Wilson Homes on their 316 unit domestic housing site known as Merlin Gardens which resides on the former Rolls Royce Factory site in East Kilbride. This once was the epicentre of employment of 4,000 people for the town which sadly turned derelict when jet engine manufacture was relocated to Inchinnan. Barratt / David Wilson Homes have come to the area turning a waste land into a place where families want to stay. The project consists of 3 strategic diversions, 10” SI, 150mm DI and 6”CI mains including two tie in’s to
the 10” SI, one to the 6”CI main and over 3.3 kilometres of new self-lay water main. Being involved in such a vast re-development of the former Rolls Royce Factory site meant working closely with various teams within Scottish Water. Service Relocation were instrumental with support and guidance for the 3 strategic diversions including various meetings with Operations and the Asset Planner to ensure the mains that were being diverted by our construction partner, Total Pipeline Technology were moved safely and in sequence to minimise the shut off areas and disruption to the many commercial, business and domestic properties which are fed off these mains. When we progressed the new water facilitation application with our design partner the application was assigned to an adviser within a week and approved within 20 days which was extremely efficient given the size of the project.

We are now focussed on the self-lay areas within the site and to the credit of the teams and team leaders in Development Services when we are calling off mains and services, we are kept right and supported on process to ensure we meet our clients expectations. Please follow the link to our website to read our article on the Rolls Royce project http://www.connections2energy.co.uk/news

What are the challenges?

Looking forward, one the challenges that our business, developers and Scottish Water are facing is with certain Local Authorities not granting section 109 permits to work on roads for utility activities related to upgrades, diversions and reinforcements. While the issue is isolated to a minority of local authorities it is affecting and delaying these types of
works from starting. Fortunately various departments within Scottish Water have stepped in to assist with the challenge and in conjunction with pressure from developers and UCP’s it is hoped there is a swift and positive outcome.

I also need to mention the loss of Colin Ballie from the Service Relocation Team is in there with a challenge, the help and support he has provided to me both within Scottish Water and for Connections2energy has been appreciated.

What are your thoughts for the future regards development in
Scotland and Scottish Water?

There are several things that come to mind – The demand for housing is growing at an unprecedented rate in conjunction with economic growth and government backing which is driving everyone in the industry to look at making processes more efficient, or developers to find ways to build faster through pre-fab kits or rapid hardening concrete. Scottish Water as a world leader in water quality and leakage efficiency has a role to play in continuing its efforts to date in sourcing and approving new or improving on existing technologies such as self-anchoring fittings and under pressure tees to reduce shut down
of mains or with self-anchor fittings, potentially speed up commissioning times if no concrete thrusts are required.
Regardless, the future for development in Scotland is thriving and given the improvements Scottish Water has made to process and investment in people, the water utility will be the market leader in Scotland.

Glassinhall House

Connections2energy History

Connections2energy Ltd have been appointed to get new water supplies installed to Old Glassingall, Dunblane, Perthshire.

The development of this historic site requires a new domestic and fire supply to be taken almost 1km from the nearest point of connection.

A full UKWIR site investigation, WIRS design and construction proposal was developed for our client by Ashleigh Farquhar, Account Manager at Connections2energy.

The property is steeped in history with records going back as far as the 12th century and there is also a fascinating literary connection.

The B-listed, Georgian property is thought to have been the inspiration for the “House of Shaws” from the novel “Kidnapped” penned by the famous Scottish author, Robert Louis Stevenson.

The classic tale, set in Scotland following the Jacobite rebellion tells the story of David Balfour’s struggle with his scheming uncle to claim his inheritance.

Ashleigh has worked closely with our design and construction teams to reduce costs for our client and will provide dedicated account management through to project completion.

Top Safety Accreditation for Connections2energy LTD

SafeContractor Approved
Nationwide Utility experts Connections2energy LTD have been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.

Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.

Connections2energy specialise in providing utility connections to domestic, industrial and commercial projects and our major clients include Cala Homes, Barratt Homes, Kier and Omega Warrington Ltd.

Connection2energy Ltd’s Quality Manager, Wayne Storey said — “The safety of our staff and contractors on site is of paramount importance to us and we’re delighted to have our rigorous health and safety systems recognised and accredited by SafeContractor”

The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”

“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Connections2energy LTD has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

A Rolls-Royce Job

Connections2energy Ltd have been appointed by Barratt Homes West Scotland to divert and upgrade the existing water mains around the former Rolls-Royce Plant at East Kilbride.

The site is to be developed by Barratt Homes to accommodate the building of 316 new homes and a handful of commercial plots.

The complex diversion works include the up-sizing and re-positioning of 4no existing Scottish Water mains ranging in size from 6” — 10” to accommodate the formation of a new roundabout on Mavor Avenue, the re-profiling of the site boundary and the added demand for supply.

The plant, which closed at the latter part of 2015 and employed over 4,000 people at its height, ended a sixty year association that has lasted almost since the New Town was founded in the 1940s.

The remaining 1,100, aero-engine repair and maintenance staff at the South Lanarkshire plant have been relocated to the Rolls Royce site at Inchinnan, Renfrewshire.
