Utility works at Beaulieu Road Pony Sales Yard

MJ Abbott Limited successfully tendered for the installation of the utilities and facilities which were not previously provided at the Beaulieu Road Pony Sales Yard in the heart of the New Forest.

Mains water was taken to the site and relevant air gaps were provided to safeguard against backflow contamination. WC facilities were provided (including disabled access) which were served by a new underground sealed cesspool.

Floodlights were installed along with external power connection points around the sales yard. A new vehicle wash down facility was also provided to cleanse the transport lorries prior to leaving the site.

The project scope of works comprised:

  • Installation of 22,000 litre sealed underground cesspool
  • Hydraulic trench beam and sheet piles were used to support the unstable ground during excavation
  • Temporary 6” dewatering pumps employed to dewater the excavation
  • Installation of WC facilities with disabled access
  • Installation of mains water supply with relevant water supply byelaws compliance
  • Installation of water storage tank and booster pumps
  • Installation of hydrant points around the Pony Sales Yard
  • Installation of floodlights and external power points
  • Construction of new concrete wash down facility and Aco channel drainage
  • Installation of 2.5m x 2.5m GRP control kiosk to house electrical control gear, tanks and pumps
  • Electrical connection and installation works by MJ Abbott electrical engineers to NICEIC standards.

Following the completion of the works to a tight schedule in time for the grand opening and the next pony sales day, the New Forest Park Authority's project manager Dave Reedhead was delighted with the works. He commented: "From conception to completion MJ Abbott managed the project with determination and accuracy and overcame all the hurdles associated with working in the New Forest, including the unexpected high ground water table and unstable ground conditions. All credit to MJ Abbott Limited who were flexible and professional in all aspects of the project."
