3DReid catches the scent of victory as sewage plant wins the green light

3DReid is enjoying the sweet smell of success after winning the go-ahead for its £300 million sewage and water treatment plant at Peacehaven in East Sussex.

The scheme for Southern Water, dubbed Poohaven by detractors, is the practice’s second attempt at delivering the huge facility after the first scheme was turned down by Communities Secretary Hazel Blears last August (AJ online 01.08.07).

The original design was branded ‘alien’ and incongruous with the landscape. The firm subsequently redesigned the scheme, giving it one of the largest green roofs in Europe (AJ online 04.03.08).

Once complete, the project will process around 95 million litres of waste water every day.
