At this week’s ‘Year in Infrastructure 2019 Conference’, Bentley System’s annual conference, which took place in Singapore from the 21-24 of October, we had the chance to speak to Tom Price, BIM Information Manager & Innovation Lead.
Representing the project: ‘Thames Tideway Tunnel’, nominee and winner of the award for the Water, Wastewater and Stormwater Network category, Price told us a bit about the project and its main objectives.
Currently the capital of the UK has a sewage system dating back to the 1850s, which was designed for a capacity of two million people. Since then, the city's population has grown to nearly 10 million.
The ‘Thames Tideway Tunnel’ project wants to provide a new sewage system for the city. Tom Price stated during the interview that one of the most important aspects of the new plan is to stop untreated sewage seeping into the Thames River.
