Durdham Down Tower is known to generations of Bristolians simply as the Water Tower. Built in 1954 for Bristol Water it stands at the highest point for miles around and is due for a major overhaul later this year. gcp has been appointed to design and co-ordinate the refurbishment which comprises extensive concrete repairs externally and lining internally as well as reroofing, improving access and safety for routine maintenance. A substantial amount of telecoms equipment will be relocated to scaffold during the works which will last 16 weeks and complete by November. This is the latest of a number of projects gcp has carried out for Bristol Water over the last twenty-five years.
