GROUNDWORKS :: CASE STUDY:


Soakaway System installed at Mount Vernon Hospital:
At Mount Vernon Hospital, A-Z Construction were required to install two concrete ring chambers creating a soakaway conforming to enviromental issues. This was required to take all rain water from the hospitals downpipes, outbuilding etc, channeling it through the ring chambers, back into the environment.

Mono Grifter System:
Mount Vernon Hospital required the installation of a Mono Grifter system, which enables natural streams and wells to be pumped out where large amounts of water can create problems for nearby buildings, requiring 3 phase duty/standby. Mono are the first progressive cavity pump system.

The photos below show the excavation of a channel in order to fit the required pipework before the Mono Grifter system was then installed. This system would also work in basements and any confined areas subjected to flooding. (Click images to enlarge)
