Project Mary in Avonmouth

Project Mary, a new distribution centre in Central Park, Avonmouth was strategically selected by The Range to provide excellent transport channels to their stores throughout the UK.

The building has a floor area of over 1,000,000 ft2, over 130km of pipework and the roof area will discard over 7000 l/s in worst storms.



Five strategically placed sewage pump stations were required around the perimeter of the building to keep the sewage waste alleviated to a certain level. The build program for this project was very tight and carried numerous challenges.

The rising main lengths varied from 200 to 600m due to the size of the building and had to be carefully selected to ensure the velocity was calculated correctly to keep the pumps running to maximum efficiency.


Dutypoint designed a complete foul water pump station package to meet the demands of the entire facility. The system included 5 pre-built packaged pumping stations, pumps and 5 rising mains which were all selected specifically for the project.

The system was pre-built off site and delivered within a specific time window to allow the build program to progress smoothly. Dutypoint also assisted in reducing installation times to get the job on site done quicker and cut out any disruption to other contractors on site.
