SVSR specialises in high-quality and compliant sewer vent installation, fabrication and design, for Sydney Water, regional councils and major names in construction and civil infrastructure. One of those clients is Ferrycarrig, a leading provider of large and complex utilities and civil infrastructure.

Malachy Quinn, Senior Project Engineer with Ferrycarrig, recently contracted SVSR for a sewer vent installation project. From his initial contact with SVSR’s Chris Antoun to project completion, he was very happy with the results.

Chris and the team were very easy to work with. Chris was more than helpful with anything we needed, and everything went smoothly start to finish.”

About the Ferrycarrig project

Ferrycarrig is a major infrastructure contractor, having contributed to landmark city projects, including Sydney Light Rail, Sydney Metro, Western Sydney Airport and the New Sydney Fish Markets.

Malachy contracted SVSR after a recommendation from a colleague who had previously worked with us on a sewer vent cowl design and fabrication project.

As part of the recent project, Ferrycarrig contracted SVSR to install 20 sewer vent shafts at St Marys in Sydney’s West. We additionally installed four sewer vents in Tahmoor for a separate project.

We had to upgrade two existing sewer lines that run from St Marys water treatment plant to Quakers Hill water treatment plant,” explains Malachy. “We needed SVSR to install air valves at 58 locations. The majority were manual and there were 20 automatic ones with sewer vent shaft installations.”

The locations were spread over a 12km stretch between treatment plants. From start to finish, the sewer vent installation took a week. Malachy found the SVSR team to be knowledgeable and very efficient.

They were very good. They knew the locations so they just took the drawings and away they went. I had an engineer with them each morning to make sure they knew where they were going, but they were very good. They knew exactly what they were doing.

SVSR also sorted all of the permits and compliance elements. All their paperwork was in order and good all round. There were no issues whatsoever.”
