Prefabricated Solutions

Dutypoint are able to offer a wide range of standard and bespoke prefabricated solutions including packaged booster sets with storage tanks, packaged pumping stations and modular equipment skids. When compared to installing multiple separate units, these solutions offer the potential to drastically reduce the amount of onsite installation time for a project.

Optimise™                                        Underground Packaged Plant Rooms.

The Dutypoint Optimise packaged plant room provides a cost-effective, safe and efficient solution to plant room space, and for installing water systems underground.

By combining industry-leading technologies, Dutypoint can offer a system which overcomes many of the challenges associated with underground plant rooms, with lower overall costs, unique safety features and ease of maintenance.

Highly Configurable

Dutypoint, as a leading manufacturer of plant and equipment, offer the flexibility to install almost any cold water booster set as well as additional equipment in the Optimise, such as:

  • Electromagnetic water conditioners to prevent scale build-up in pipework and other plant equipment

  • Ultra-violet disinfection and filtration equipment

  • Boilers, air handling, CHP plants, generators and other equipment

  • Modular system for larger installations where additional capacity is required

  • Fire pump systems

Fast and Safe Installation

By utilising a pre-fitted concrete shuttering system, the Dutypoint Optimise can be installed in a fraction of the time of a conventional underground chamber.

The shuttering system allows the concrete work to be completed in only two pours, vastly reducing overall pour time, reducing the number of entries into the excavation and therefore reducing the number of working hours required to complete the installation.

Safe Access for Maintenance Personnel

Unlike other systems on the market this does not require two maintenance personnel, personal lifting gear or breathing apparatus (subject to site conditions). This is due to a combination of features:

Optimise - Underground Packaged Plant Room_new


- A full-size staircase and over-sized access cover allows ease of entry and exit - A mechanical ventilation system ensures the environment is always safe without the need to carry respiratory equipment

- An underfloor flood bund area ensured that in the unlikely event the water cistern is accidentally emptied into the plant room, the risk of drowning is greatly reduced

- Twin, independently controlled sump pumps in the bund area ensure that any excess water is quickly removed

- A remote monitoring system provides alerts and warnings in case of any problems

Additional features

Also compatible with boilers, air handling CHP plants, generator and other plant

Product benefits

  • Developers to regain prime space in their developments by locating essential plant equipment underground under dead space such as car parks
  • Provide a safe alternative to the confined spaces that currently define underground plant rooms, leading to more straightforward maintenance

  • A system which allows for a safer and faster installation by the civils contractor, saving valuable time on site and therefore saving on installation costs

  • Protecting the environment by an efficient use of concrete

  • Protection against drowning in the underground plant room

  • Ability to form a modular network of plant rooms composed of transportable parts which are connected on site in order that the range can cover functions of plant rooms which are larger than the transportable size
