Minimal disruption. Intuitive solutions. Complete package.

Hook, line and system.


Formally known as the Old Fish Processing Factory at London Fields, the scheme consists of a newly refurbished six-storey building including 31 residential apartments and 25,000 sq. ft of commercial space. Dutypoint were engaged in this project to design and supply the rainwater harvesting system to collect rainwater from the roof and pump greywater to the toilets in the building.


Dutypoint were brought onto the project very late in the programme, with the demolition phase already complete and the refurbishment work well underway. The contractor required immediate installation to minimise disruption and reduce any downtime so the project would be kept on track. Our team worked with the main contractor, project manager, structural engineer, M&E engineers and contractors, groundwork contractors and civil consultants to design a complete packaged pump solution.

The system included an underground rainwater collection tank, filters, and our ScubaTANK® cold water boosting system, to provide the entire building with adequate water pressure, even at times of maximum usage. As the project was mid-build, we needed to provide an adapted system to allow for ease of delivery and to fit the restricted space available.


Our pre-packaged unit reduced installation times on site and the flexibility of our polyethylene tanks allowed us to adapt our designs to meet the specific requirements and challenging installation conditions of the project. With a wealth of experience and product knowledge, Dutypoint approached the specific issues of the project to design and deliver every element of the system within a very tight timeframe and ensure the client’s requirements were provided on time.
