Arsenal Youth Academy

  • Client: Contractor
  • Number of Pumping Stations: 1
  • Project Location: London
  • System Type: Surface Water Pump Station

Paradigm recently completed a contract to design and build the surface water pumping stations for the new Arsenal Youth Academy.

Arsenal’s plan was to transform the club’s training ground at London Colney and continue development at the Hale End yout academy.  The project involved major works including a new gym, a 40-metre running track, ice baths, a spa, a cryotherapy chamber and a number of player meeting rooms.  The facility will be used by the first team and house first and second year professionals in the academy.

The pumping system is a dual packaged pumping station with a GRP constructed chamber fitted with dual 4 l/sec Grundfos pumps mounted on guiderails.  The station is designed to discharge the surface water below the permeable draining as well as run-off from the impermeable areas.
