MSJ have undertaken foul, surface and waste water drainage designs on numerous industrial, commercial and residential developments. We prepare designs to the requirements of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) and make use of the latest Microdrainage software. We can check/design the network for flooding potential and to calculate flood attenuation volumes. Our designs have been adopted under Section 104 Agreements and have also complied with the Code for Sustainable Homes. We have also prepared flood risk assessments and drainage strategies to assist in planning applications.
Wharfedale Homes - Laburnum Farm, Hessay
Melia Smith & Jones were commissioned to design the foul and surface water drainage for this development of 7 large detached houses.
Clevedon Drainage Scheme
In addition to our involvement in the structural design of this project, MSJ were also commissioned to design the foul and surface water drainage. The system was modelled using Microdrainage software that enables us to accurately and efficiently determine the size of a range of attenuation features.
MSJ have prepared designs for housing/industrial estate roads and car parks which often get adopted under a Section 38 Agreement.
We provide layout drawings and details, which typically include plans, sections, kerb details, horizontal and vertical alignment and setting out co-ordinates.
We use Autotrack software to produce swept paths to ensure that the layouts are efficiently designed and easy to use. We can also co-ordinate the road design with the drainage scheme.
PF International, Kart Track Extension, Grantham
P F International kart circuit is a world-class karting facility located in Brandon, near Grantham. In 2011 MSJ were commissioned to design an extension to the circuit and to include a bridge and flyover.
Jersey Infrastructure - EfW Enabling Works
A new Energy from Waste (EfW) facility was to be built on reclaimed land. The existing roads were inadequate to serve this new facility and MSJ were commissioned to design a new access road, associated drainage, retaining walls and pipe bridges.
