We inspect, clean & disinfect hundreds of potable water assets as part of ongoing annual maintenance programmes but are also called in to prepare assets for first use.
Today we remain first choice for many clients whether it is a short section of 50mm HDPE pipework or a whole new treatment process at a critical Water Treatment Works combining a broad range of services, some unique products and vast experience gained over the past 21 years.
We are able to provide a more efficient commissioning process creating a single interface between specialist and principal contractor, and our reputation for excellence in Water Quality and hygienic working practices allow for the removal of duplicated supervision.
Their commissioning services include:
Consultancy & Advice: Engineers are often asked to provide advice at the detailed design stage ensuring that pipework can be installed with safer and swifter commissioning in mind, this can include modification to sample points, the provision of de-chlorination chambers or the location of air release valves and washout points.
Pipeline Flushing and Swabbing: With dedicated potable water equipment and extensive experience Panton McLeod engineers are able to remove any residual construction debris and entrapped air.
Pressure Testing: Through the use of GPS tracked data loggers, offsite 3rd party verification and bespoke equipment pressure testing can be completed with full traceable assurance for the end client. Testing is always completed to the latest standards and with minimal disruption to program.
Pipeline Cleaning & Disinfection: Whether it is 3 metres of 50mm or 12,000m of 900mm we can take on the project. They able to employ a variety of methods and products to best suit the asset and its surroundings including the removal of contaminants such as cryptosporidium and hydrocarbons.
Flood Testing and Asset Condition Grading: During commissioning, we are often asked to provide an independent assessment of the asset condition to the shared end client.
Reservoir Cleaning & Disinfection: As industry leaders, we can provide a range of cleaning and disinfection methodologies similar to those offered to the pipelines to suit the asset. This can include PM100 chemical treatment, low-pressure cleaning to protect the asset substrate or high-pressure cleaning where required.
Onsite Waste Treatment: Where commissioning works produce wastewaters, we are able to provide a full range of treatment options to ensure compliance with EA or SEPA discharge consents. All of our procedures have been designed to provide a cost-effective, sustainable and portable solution often removing the need for liquid waste to be removed from site.
Reactive Snagging or Repair Works: Although every new build project aims to be delivered without any snagging it is prudent to have a partner who is agile enough to help out if issues are identified at short notice. Panton McLeod teams are multi-disciplined and are often able to carry out reactive waterproofing, protective coating or joint works to ensure ‘into supply’ dates are met.
All of these factors have resulted in us being integral to many of the largest and highest profile investments including the expansion to Frankley WTW in Birmingham in 2010 and 2014 and the Loch Katrine and Glencorse WTW projects in Scotland. In 2010 the upgrade to the GAC plant at Frankley required over 13 mega litres of water to be pumped, dosed and disposed of safely but we can be equally important on the smallest rural scheme involving only a few hundred litres of water.
