Prestons Road Pump Station

It is not often you get asked to design a sewage pump station. AP Design were engaged by Ngai Tahu Property Group to design the building to house the Waste Water Vacuum Pumping Station located in the Prestons Road subdivision. The Vacuum waste water system is the largest system ever installed in New Zealand servicing 2200 homes.

The building itself had to adhere to strict planning guidelines to fit in contextually in a residential area. It also had to be functional and minimise any disturbance to neighbours while its large vacuum pumps were operating. The project came in on time and under budget making it very successful all round.
