Islington Pumping Station is a new flood defence system being installed on the banks of the River Great Ouse to replace the existing pumping station that was originally built in 1959.

The new pumping station will increase the pumping capacity from the current 2,800 l/s to 16,000 l/s (1.4bn litres per day) through four fish-friendly, concrete-encased pumps.

The pumps and concrete casing have been rigorously tested to ensure that they are future-proof and therefore able to protect the 6000 hectares they are designed to protect for decades to come.

As the structure is mainly concrete, Hampsey Ltd is constructing most of the building, but, at the most basic, we are providing concrete walls and concrete slabs - including the concrete casing for the pumps.

The project is significantly more complex than buildings you might come across in urban areas. Being a building that is intended to battle mother nature, an environmental infrastructure project like this was never going to be easy but Hampsey have demonstrated that the complex engineering and practical challenges of building on river banks were not too big for us to overcome.
