Pump House goes to school in Southampton

Pump House, school, Southampton

As part of a wider expansion of secondary schools across the city of Southampton, Bitterne Park school was constructed by Kier Construction who appointed Hopkins Mechanical & Electrical Engineers. The school replaces an older building, accommodating around 1800 students in 90 teaching spaces. The building also features a theatre, assembly hall and drama studios.

Hopkins ordered Pump House Flexi Support Systems via Bison Industrial in Botley, Southampton. An assortment of products was required to support various services such as cable trays, ductwork, condensers and air-handling units. In addition, due to one of the air-handling units being extremely wider than usual, we also had to manufacture a bespoke custom framework for this item.

Removing the requirements for traditional concrete plinths, Pump House solutions offer a fast and simple installation process, avoiding awkward waterproofing details or roof penetrations. All solutions provide the installer with greater flexibility to make last minute changes and are supplied hot dip galvanised to suit external environments.
