Barhale were awarded the scheme by Thames Water to alleviate flooding within the Bayswater area of London.
The scheme involved the connection of the existing Victorian sewers to a new pumping station from which discharge would be carried via a new rising main to another existing brick built egg shaped sewer.
The pumping station was designed for storage of a 1 in 15 year storm. Discharge passed through a reinforced concrete valve chamber some 6m long, 3m wide and 3m deep, to a 600mm concrete outlet pipe laid in open cut trenches to the existing Victorian brick built sewer at Inverness Terrace, a narrow road with a number of Embassies to one side.
