Downlands College, Sports Science Centre

The Downlands College Sports Science Centre was a project that provided the school with two basketball courts, full length observation deck which also services the swimming pool, male and female change rooms and toilets, function centre, gym, storage space and undercover parking. 

Total Hydraulic Services carried out multiple plumbing works on the massive site including, stormwater installation and a filtration system as the school relies heavily on the use of bore water. 

Sanitary drainage from the amenities and changeroom area was suspended through the undercroft and connected to the schools existing underground drainage system.

Due to the expected high demands of the amenities area the hot water was supplied by a bank of 6 heat pumps through a circulating main to maintain a constant supply of hot water to the area. 

Upgrade of existing fire services and connection of a fire hydrant booster and diesel fire pump into existing mains.  Additional fire hydrants were also included within the structure.
