Concrete Repairs Limited were undertaking the refurbishment of the Durdham Down Water Tower and contracted JH Group to complete the groundworks. The finish result provides a clean appearance to the compound which forms the perfect setting the iconic water tower.

Durdham Down Water Tower is situated on Clifton Downs and was constructed in 1954 and is a twelve-sided reinforced concrete water tank with an inner and outer compartment supported on reinforced concrete fin piers and a reinforced concrete structure housing a concrete access staircase and landings. The total storage capacity is 2.73m litres of potable water. The tower and adjacent covered surface reservoir in turn supply potable water to the local population.
