The Project

Gatwick Airport Limited (GAL) contracted Osborne Limited to install a new water fire main, connecting Pumping Station 24 (PS24) to the existing main.

Osborne Limited subcontracted the civils element of the work to Gatwick Construction Limited (GCL), due to our wealth of experience working within an airport environment and our ability to mobilise at short notice.

The scope of work included for:

  1. Isolation of existing fire main, capping and removal of valves.
  2. Construction of valve chambers and installation of 240 m of 300 mm dia fire main and connection to existing ring main located on the airfield and pumping equipment located in PS24.
  3. Maintaining CAT III status to the airfield at all times during installation.
  4. Provision of temporary works, which included the installation of cofferdams to Pond D, and excavations to a depth of 6 m adjacent to PS24.
  5. Reinstatement of Pavement Quality concrete bays including EJ and CJ joints.
  6. Renewal of compound fence.

The planning sequence of the work was fundamental to the success of this project, as any delay to the completion would have had severe consequences for GAL's Programme of Enhancements and major projects directly associated with the outcome of this project. Accelerated progress was made by holding weekly reprogramming
and maintaining continuous momentum in the construction phase.

By procuring bespoke designed Buchan pre-cast chambers with cast Di flanges, spigots and formed valve key voids, ensured a quality product was manufactured, saving time on site. GCL Co-ordinated with Black and Veach Design, Ham Baker Pipelines and Buchan to ensure the design achieved it's objectives and was fit for purpose.

The Outcome

GCL liaised directly with GAL Aerodrome to obtain accurate NATS information in order to enable lifting operations to be undertaken without effecting the operational effectiveness of the nearby adjacent runway during normal working hours. This enabled GCL to complete the work safely by the scheduled deadline in readiness for the main runway works to commence.
