Installation of a bespoke foul pump into a particularly poor ground with a high water table without holding up building work on the site.
Marshalls CPM’s precast concrete Off Site Solutions team who came up with a prefitted 2100mm diameter pump chamber and an 1800mm x 2400mm x 2000mm deep valve chamber that fitted the bill, saving on both time on money.
“From setting up pumps to deal with the high water table and establishing the temporary works to provide the earthworks to support both the pump chamber and valve chamber were placed and back filled within eleven working days. The integrity of the design gave the team involved the security that the chambers would not leak and the accuracy of the manufacture within the chambers was so good that the installation of the pump gear that could have taken four days was completed in just over one. Facing a similar challenge in the future, be it with a pumping station or a large control manhole, I would certainly discuss with Marshalls CPM again.”
