Minimal disruption on a tight timeframe with pre-packaged pump station.

Attenuation to detail.


The Project Crown development at 39-40 Lowndes Square, Knightsbridge involved the demolition, re-construction and final internal fit-out of eight luxury residential apartments over seven floors and a subterranean basement.

Dutypoint were involved in the design and delivery of a pre-packaged pump station for foul water and stormwater attenuation installed below the basement slab.


Dutypoint were brought on to this project very late, and due to restrictions on discharge rates still being worked through with Thames Water, the programme became very tight. Dutypoint worked to a very tight and challenging schedule to successfully deliver the pre-packaged pump system within just a few days of receiving the order.

Working closely with McLaren Construction, Dutypoint needed to conform with particularly stringent flow restrictions imposed by Thames Water.


The pre-packaged pump station developed by Dutypoint provided a bespoke solution to exceed the requirements of the client and was delivered on time to a site with extremely restricted access, causing very little disruption to the build project.
