Four packaged pumping stations were required to remove foul water separately from four new-build domestic properties with basements.
The 3-acre site meant that horizontal pumping distances would be up to 100m and due to the site’s topography chambers up to 5m deep would be required.
The Edincare design team specified the pumping stations based on site drawings. The chambers were situated externally for easy access, however due to basement construction the chambers needed to be very deep. GRP chambers were manufactured to withstand the high hydrostatic pressures of the deep chambers and were installed by the groundwork contractors.
Edincare engineers fully commissioned the pumping stations, installing the floats, pumps and wiring back to the control panel.
• Edincare’s design team designed and situated the pumping stations to suit the site.
