Hunter Water required the Upgrade Works at Beresfield 5 due to insufficient storage capacity at the pump station.
The works included the construction of a 7 meter diameter cast in-situ Pump Well to a depth of 7.5 metres with integral valve pit, the installation of gravity sewer, discharge pipework and pumps. Eire Constructions were also managing the electrical installation, switchboard manufacture and telemetry installation.
The project team’s sound understanding of the scope and sequencing needed to complete the works was been a critical factor in dealing with the intricate connections into the existing rising mains.
This project was completed in September 2016.
