Project Description

The project involved the construction of a new compressed natural gas re-fuelling station within the Omega Business Park in Warrington, Cheshire.

We were appointed by our Client, CNG Fuels, to carry out a variety of services including Drainage and Structural Design, Site Investigation and Principal Designer services. CNG Fuels are currently in the process of expanding their UK network of re-fuelling stations that utilise renewable biomethane sourced solely from food waste. 

A large element of the project involved the design and detailing of the various reinforced concrete bases required to support the refuelling plant and equipment. One of the challenges faced by the design team included building over an existing water main that runs beneath the site.

A message from Thomas Consulting
Here at Thomas Consulting as other organisations during this time of uncertainty with COVID-19 we are responding to the Government recommendations to try and reduce the spread of the virus. Staff have been made aware of the steps that need to be taken if they show any signs of the infection or have been in contact with others with the symptoms and are updated with any changes daily. That said we are focused on delivering safe, reliable on-going support to both new and existing clients; having implemented measures to ensure that we are able to have staff working remotely (i.e. at home) reducing their contact both with each other and clients to keep all as safe as is possible.

Unfortunately site meetings are postponed until the current restrictions are reviewed and updated and each meeting/site visit will be assessed individually at that time. All other elements of each project will continue to be progressed where possible and each member of the team will be updating clients on their progress.

Thomas Consulting are committed to continue to review the Governments recommendations and make the necessary changes that enable our projects to be delivered on time collaboratively during this period with the minimum amount of risk.

Unfortunately this is going to be an ongoing process for the next few months with constant review; however should you need to contact any member of our team the following numbers will always be available during our normal working hours of 9am - 5pm Monday - Friday 01743 237940 (Shrewsbury), 01772 299040 (Chorley) and 01524 846022 (Lancaster).
