The Client

Westbuild Homes Ltd, has constructed homes in the Thames & Home Counties for over 50 years. It has established an enviable reputation in creating homes of the finest calibre that are truly “Homes Designed to be Homes”

The Problem

In 2015, Westbuild Homes Ltd, wished to construct 4 off prestige houses close to the centre of Newbury. The idea site however would require a sewage pumping station for all the properties.

The Solution

Westbuild Homes Ltd, knew the levels, specification and position of the pumping station that was required for this site.

The pump station would be positioned at the bottom of the drive of the central property, the houses being in a nice crescent sweep, with the control panel mounted within an attractive wooden kiosk some distance away, so much so that a junction box would be required.

Westbuild Homes Ltd, naturally asked a number of potential pump station suppliers to bid for the work, eventually choosing Pump Technology Ltd.

Matthew Brook, of Westbuild Homes Ltd, says “Whilst we did select the PumpMatic below ground pumping station from Pump Technology Ltd, for ultimately best meeting our technical and commercial requirements, we were also reassured by their level of support.”

Matthew adds “In particular it was of great value to have Steve Murphy, Pump Technology Ltd, in-house consultant always on-hand to answer questions or visit site especially as we wished to position the control panel and kiosk in a nonintrusive location.”

As Pump Technology Ltd, manufacture its own tanks, this always helps us to provide detailed a customised specifications of the PumpMatic pumping station, control panel, pumps and cabling for the clients site layout. At order for example the tank inlet & outlet heights were then manufactured to the request of the site engineer.

Matthew says “The pump station arrived on time and to specification, the clear installation instruction, plus the tank being customised to our site drainage level meant our ground worker completed the tank installation easily and successfully.”

Pump Technology Ltd, then finished the project by commissioning the pump station, this was completed successfully as we had worked closely with Westbuild Homes Ltd, throughout the project.

Since the first property was occupied the pumping station has been operating without missing a beat, both Westbuild Homes Ltd and residence are very pleased.
