While a significant part of what we do at Apex is the design and build of turnkey water/wastewater treatment plants, we do undertake specialist design work in these areas. Recent work completed has been highly varied, including the design and specification of a mixing system for a trade waste sump, the modelling of upgrade options for an existing sewage treatment plant to achieve better consent compliance and the operational and performance review of a range of water and wastewater treatment plants for a municipal client.

Design projects range from specific elements through to optioneering of full treatment plants that include an assessment of capital and operational costs, consenting requirements & maintenance obligations.   

We utilise two specialist software packages as part of our design work – Biowin and AutoCAD Plant 3D.  Biowin is a wastewater treatment plant simulator that can be applied to the design of new systems, the troubleshooting of existing plants and the identification of upgrade options for plants that need a performance boost.  With the use of AutoCAD Plant 3D package, we can generate fully integrated process designs where P&ID drawings are linked to 3D models, construction drawings and equipment schedules so that any changes automatically update across the drawing set, ensuring a very high degree of accuracy.
