Dutypoint in grandstand finish

The challenge of maintaining reliable high water pressure in the new grandstand at Cheltenham racecourse in the face of substantial differences in demand between race days and non-race days has been met by a system designed by Dutypoint systems. The new grandstand consists of five and a half storeys — with bars, toilets and private boxes.

Dutypoint designed a 3-pump booster set with an associated break tank. The system can remotely vary the amount of water stored to allow more storage on high-demand race days and minimal storage on other days.

The package supplied incorporated a compact VR 3-pump booster set, pressurisation units, pressure vessels and an associated break tank. All were covered by the commissioning service offered by Dutypoint.

Tom Burke, key account manager with Dutypoint, explains, ‘By designing a tank with booster controls that can be linked to the building-management system, tank storage levels could be pre-determined to switch between low-level and maximum storage to meet the peak demand on race days, whilst maintaining lower levels of storage at other times.’

To support the smooth running of the project, Dutypoint sought to ensure equipment was delivered only when required, thus also minimising the risk of damage to expensive equipment stored on a busy site.
