On being appointed by the Paris region water authority (SEDIF) to provide design studies and construction supervision for the redevelopment of its water supply works in Palaiseau, Artelia began building a 3D digital mock-up right from the preliminary design stage. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an invaluable aid for this project, which combines rehabilitation and new construction (a reservoir and a pumping station) and imposes exacting standards in terms of facility safety levels, architectural treatment, landscaping, and keeping the site operational during the works
- Booster pumping station delivering drinking water to the networks referred to as “PALAI190” and “PALAI210” (two pumping units with a fixed delivery rate of 180 m3/h)
- Two water towers are balanced on the second pumping level network (referred to as “PALAI170”), with a total capacity of 6000 m3.
- A back-up pumping station comprising two motor-driven pump units (respectively 170 and 250 m3/h) to provide a back-up solution in the event of a power cut.
