Project: Richmond Education and Enterprise Campus – Twickenham
Products: Flexi light – flexi frames. Flexi heavy – flexi modular frames & flexi QUAD frames.
Application: Air-handling units & Chillers.
Roof build-up: Inverted roof design – (upside down roof).
Pump House recently supplied a number of their flat roof plant support frames to the REEC School development on Egerton Road in Twickenham, West London.
CMB Engineering (Cardiff) the mechanical contractor on the project, chose Flexi Support Systems on the day to support a number of rooftop air-handling units and chillers. A combination of our flexi modular light and heavy duty frameworks were chosen to support a variety of services ranging in different sizes and weights.
Pump House provided appropriate support frameworks, to safely manage the imposed loads from the services being supported, back down to the roof finishes beneath the frames. All flexi frames are fully adjustable, due to their M24 adjustable leg assemblies supplied as standard. On heavier services we utilise our larger 500mm2 support feet. Pump House carry out a load management review of all services that are being supported on our frameworks. This information is then passed onto the project team on site to review, prior to delivering the support solutions.
The flexible nature of our systems combined with even load distribution through our non-penetrative feet, provides the simplest and most cost effective alternative to conventional concrete plinths supports.
