Case study – Sewage Treatment Installation for Barn Conversion in Isle of Wight
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Date: August 2018
Location: Godshill Park Farm, Isle of Wight
Type of project: Commercial – Barn conversion for a seven-bedroom house and a yoga retreat
Industry: Sports & Leisure
Sewage treatment installed: Tricel Novo UK18
Following the decision of Mr and Mrs Domaille to transform their Godshill Park Farm into a seven-bedroom house as well as a yoga retreat, we were contacted by Dial a Rod Engineering Services Limited, the main drainage company in the Isle of Wight.
The aim was to find the perfect sewage treatment solution for a barn conversion and thus, upgrade their existing septic tank installation in line with their future projects.
Tricel supplied a Tricel Novo UK18 and then worked alongside DARES who carried out the sewage treatment plant installation and building work on the ground.
About Godshill Park Cottages
Near Godshill, Isle of Wight, the Godshill Park Cottages is a luxury self-catering accommodation that has allowed people to enjoy a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle and busy traffic for years.
Guests have access to a wide range of activities on the working livestock farm: walking with llamas and alpacas, fishing, riding, etc. They also regularly host yoga and wellbeing retreats.
The challenges of the project
The sewage treatment installation for the barn conversion had to be carried out quickly as guests were expected in the next few weeks during the peak season. Therefore, a short timeline was assigned to the project to ensure minimum disturbance to the typical day to day running of the farm. This timeline was also given to be sure that the owners would be able to welcome their new guests in the best conditions and on time.
Moreover, given the type of business the Domailles are running, many groups of people will be continuously using the facilities of the cottages. So, it was really important to install a solid and reliable sewage treatment plant which would not break down during busy times.
How we helped
Due to the nature and parameters of this project, it was essential to provide a solution which met all the requirements regarding both the system to be installed and also the timeline for installation. That’s why we chose to install a Tricel Novo UK18.
In fact, these plants are really simple and easy to install as they are lightweight and compact. Besides, they also have low maintenance and running costs, which is ideal for commercial installations. Finally, they have a very low visual impact when they are properly installed.
Dial a Rod Engineering Services Limited carried out the works and installation of the Tricel Novo UK18, including the discharge to the stream, while Tricel commissioned the plant.
Thanks to this reliable system, competitive pricing, speed and efficiency, the sewage treatment for the barn conversion was in place and operational by the end of August 2018. Less than three days were required for the installation and commissioning of the sewage treatment system.
It took only one day to install the tank itself. Mr and Mrs Domaille were extremely happy with the quick, neat and tidy installation.
