If you live in the West Midlands, when you turn on the tap to take a shower or put the kettle on for a morning cuppa, you’re probably not thinking of the civil engineering and technology it has taken to get that H2O from the reservoir to your home. You’re probably even less aware of the HGV’s that play their part in the process.
Here at ND Brown we have been supporting contractors and partner organisations to Severn Trent Water, the region’s water supplier and those responsible for the utilities. The water is transported via a network of pipes and treatment facilities from reservoirs in the Elan Valley. This series of man-made lakes were created from damming the Elan and Claerwen rivers within the Elan Valley in Mid Wales. Getting the water from the Welsh mountains to the West Midlands conurbation, Birmingham city and the suburbs is an amazing feat of engineering.
Supplying Vehicles to Birmingham Organisations
Whenever new or replacement pipework needs to be drilled and laid underground, soil and aggregates need to be extracted and removed. We have been supplying grab hire and other HGV vehicles to utilities companies and the construction industry. Tipper grabs are highly efficient vehicles for extracting and removing spoil from excavations. The driver can also operate the crane and bucket to ensure a speedy process and reduce disruption to the transport system and roads.
Civil engineering and construction companies working on projects in Birmingham and the continued development of the region have benefited from a flexible and reliable HGV hire service from ND Brown.
