The Gregory Hill Pump Station was part of an extensive system upgrade to multiple water facilities throughout the City of Westminster. After almost 60 years of service, the city decided to upgrade the existing tanks and pump station to increase efficiency and capacity.
The upgrades required the team to demolish the old facility and construct new tanks, a new pump station and new underground pipelines to transmit water. The old steel tanks were replaced with two new prestressed concrete tanks that hold three million gallons each, and a new pump station that has a capacity to pump 13.8 million gallons per day.
The team devised a proactive approach to ensure a smooth project completion with minimal disruptions to the neighboring subdivision, including open communication and educational tours of the new pump station. The team also lent a hand to help neighbors relocate fences, if needed.
