McCORMICK MEADOWS DEVELOPMENT
ICONIX Waterworks Package Pump Station Gives McCormick Meadows Temporary Solution
When engineers for the new McCormick Meadows development in Langford, BC learned existing water services to the area wouldn’t meet domestic pressure requirements under the BC Building Code, they came to ICONIX Waterworks to find a solution.
From concept to delivery, our Engineered Products and Packaged Solutions team produced a package system that would provide increased water pressure to 40 homes situated on a hill within the development. The station is temporary as the Capital Regional District (CRD) develops and expands its watermains to connect the area to reservoirs.
“The elevation of the development was at the upper limits of the CRD hydraulic grade line,” said Richard Rebneris, Principal for On Point Project Engineers Ltd. “The booster pump station increases the pressure to the properties in the area.”
At 120 square feet (11.1 m2), the system was designed to have a minimal footprint in the neighbourhood. Since it doesn’t require a foundation, it can be easily removed when no longer needed.
“The station is both a low-maintenance and cost-effective solution,” said Rob Foster, Design, Sales and Project Manager for ICONIX. “It can also be run from a remote location using SCADA controls.”
The CSA-approved system was built off-site, reducing the developer’s insurance liability costs, and was pre-piped, pre-wired, and factory-tested at ICONIX's Langley, BC facility prior to installation.
“ICONIX was chosen because of their reputation and commitment to engineer, deliver, and commission the pump station and SCADA in a timely manner,” said Richard.
The station was delivered to McCormick Meadows on July 22, 2016 and commissioned on August 10, 2016.
