Case Study

Road construction scheme aided by Sykes Pumps

Renowned for tailoring solutions to suit customers in the construction sector, Sykes Pumps regularly work alongside the industry’s biggest contractors and provide arrangements designed to accelerate various types of projects. Requirements can range from bypassing existing systems right through to flood prevention programmes which, if not assessed accurately, can cause major delays costing both time and money.

So when a road extension scheme in the Waterlooville area of Hampshire was being repeatedly disrupted by intermittent downpours, a pump hire was absolutely imperative to avoid further postponements. Prior to our intervention, the site was flooding every time it rained.

Our response was to deploy a super silent pump in each of two purposefully-created lagoons, and these were accompanied by settlement tanks which we also provided. A 4” Hydraset was then used to assist with drainage installation, with this product deliberately selected due to its excellent manoeuvrability.

Despite receiving the original enquiry out of hours, a Sykes technician visited the location the following day and proposed an appropriate pump classification based on his findings. The entire system was fully operational within two hours delivery and the equipment remained on hire until the project’s completion.
