In late January 2020, following the burst in the two wastewater sludge pipelines buried in a tunnel deep under Mt Albert, Wellington Water engaged engineering firm Stantec to identify repair options and manage the project.
Brian Perry Civil were then engaged as the lead contractor to undertake the enabling works and to manage the other contractors working on site.
A long list of options was quickly whittled down to a shortlist of two options for relining the existing pipes.
From the shortlist SaniTube, from German Company, Amex Sanivar, was selected because it offered the best value for money, could be installed quickly and highly experienced New Zealand agent and installer Hadlee and Brunton was able to undertake the work.
Despite the additional challenge of the global pandemic both pipes were successfully relined by the end of May 2020, thanks to the multi-disciplinary team brought together to deliver this innovative repair.
