PINKSTON

CASE STUDIES

This project was to provide a multi discipline reconfigurable water course facility to provide year-round training for both white water sports enthusiasts and the local Fire & Rescue Service.

  • The patented pre-cast concrete base units complete with uni-strut rail installed to +/-2mm tolerances allow vehicles to be fixed down for fire and rescue training as well as the Rapidbloc system to create a canoe slalom
  • 3 x 7cumex pumps then push 21,000 litres of water per second down the course to recreate rapids
  • The project was completed on time and within budget
