Innovations
Fire Hydrant flow and pressure testing at the start of the project indicated marginal compliance in regards to required pressure. However, instead of installing fire hydrant pumps, Aqualogical carefully designed the system to minimise system losses by installing a 150mm diameter ring main and locating the hydrants as near as practical to the ring main. In the event that in the future mains pressure is reduced, we designed in space and pipework provision to install a hydrant pump with minimal expenditure or disruption.
Specific Challenges
Contaminated soil due to a Petrol Station being located on the site previously.

Maximising lettable area – the use of syphonic rainwater drainage reduced the number of downpipes in lettable space.
