Pump stations

Brian Perry Civil delivers pump station construction and upgrades for a range of Councils and Water authorities across Aotearoa New Zealand.

Alongside our design partners, BPC has applied innovation to their construction – particularly in busy urban environments, with the introduction of the segmental caisson method into New Zealand. Using precast concrete segments, the system allows each shaft ring to be constructed above ground and then the structure is jacked into the ground before the next ring is added. It is faster, quieter, and safer than traditional construction methods and requires a significantly smaller construction footprint.

BPC also constructs portable and floating raw water pump stations, in often challenging conditions, using specialist marine equipment including several jack-up-barges.
