AquaTech Pressmain has provided their A-Pod unit for Union House in Middlesex. The A-Pod unit will provide the water services to a building through a combined booster set and a break tank, both inside one transferable pod.
Designed as a single piece item with two sections, one for stored water the other for a booster set, the unit can be delivered to site where, once positioned, it requires the simple connection of mains pipework, outlet pipework to services and electrical supply, making it a “plug in and play” unit.
The Union House is a block of 5 floors of serviced offices ran by Avanta. The challenge was to save space for the plantroom without the expensive option of structurally reinforcing a roof floor to support the tank required. The engineer opted for an A-Pod outside the building; the available space was found without any parking lot sacrifice and the planning permission was obtained.
Once the A-Pod was delivered, the installer was able to connect swiftly to the building’s pipework and today the system runs smoothly offering ample water flow to the tenants.
