This project is nestled in a stunning location, between the Cambrian Mountains and the Irish Sea. The Aberystwyth Innovation and Enterprise Campus will provide new facilities for research into bioscience, agri-tech, and the food and drink sectors. It is a £40m new development boost the university’s current portfolio.

F. P. Hurley & Sons, a building contractor from Bridgend, was appointed to the project, and required a suitable heavy duty framework, to support a very large 8,000kg rooftop air-handling unit.

Using its Flexi-Heavy Modular Framework, the Pump House engineers designed and calculated a support frame to manage this demanding load. Pump House also supplied full working drawings, together with foot pressure, and roof load calculations.

Following an order from BSS Swansea, Pump House met the goods on site to ensure F.P. Hurley & Sons had a trouble free installation, which included being on-site for the crane lift of the equipment onto the framework.

The flexible nature of the Pump House systems, combined with even load distribution through non-penetrative feet, meant this removed the risk of potential leaks. It also reduced the risk of thermal cold bridging, which may occur with traditional supports breaking through the waterproofing. The lightweight and portable nature of the products made installation system very simple and fast.
