Polypipe gives landmark Rolls-Royce development forward momentum

site in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire. The area is being developed over the next


seven years with a new road network central to the plan, which is being renovated for multiple purposes. The finished scheme will include a school, commercial buildings with warehouses and up to 900 new homes in a project backed by Rolls-Royce and scheme developer Muse. Polypipe worked with main contractor

Galliford Try to supply the main drainage and sewer infrastructure across the 150 acres of land. In addition, Polypipe has also supplied Ridgiduct cable protection to enhance the security and safety of the electricity and utilities networks. The holistic approach that Polypipe brought

to every aspect of the project ensured that the main contractor switched to using plastic systems ahead of the originally specified traditional materials, for speed of installation and ease of use. To provide the land assigned for homes with necessary infrastructure, Polypipe supplied

The project design was underpinned by

extensive use of Ridgistorm-XL large diameter pipe, with the stiffness classification intelligently engineered by Polypipe technical team to meet the differing ground conditions across the site. As part of the site’s impressive surface

Polysewer and Ridgisewer structured wall sewer pipes and fittings, and surface water drainage system Ridgidrain to assist with excess surface water discharge. Ridigullies and Connection Saddles were also used to help connect the drainage systems together. For the sewer system, 340m of 150mm

Polysewer and 250m of 450-600mm Ridgisewer were installed for both surface water and foul sewers for adoption by the local water company. Over 80 Ridgigullies were installed to capture surface water, which are connected to Ridgidrain pipes to direct surface water to local natural watercourses. To complete the systems, Connection Saddles were also used to connect smaller Polysewer pipes to Ridgisewer, and Ridgidrain to Ridgistorm-XL.

drainage water infrastructure, Polypipe was able to produce over 800m of Ridgistorm-XL, in diameters ranging from 750-1050mm. Each section of pipe was engineered to a specific length that met the exact requirements of the project. The final system allows for high volumes of water to be discharged into local watercourses. In addition to the drainage infrastructure,

over 20km of Ridgiduct has been supplied and installed to help protect the power lines, street lights and clean water systems. The advantage of this approach is that housing and building developers will be able to connect the new homes and commercial units to these pre-installed networks. Polypipe Civils’ role in the project is due to be

completed in Summer 2017. 01709 770 000

Gaia warms up Berkeley development

Berkeley Homes is now employing Gaia’s underfloor heating system across its Woodhurst Park development of 750 homes at Warfield in Berkshire. The underfloor heating provides hidden added comfort and, by dispensing the need for radiators, Berkeley is able to free up wall space to create crisp,

useable and appealing interiors. As well as supplying all the necessary components of the underfloor heating systems, Gaia’s own specialist teams are undertaking the installation, testing and commissioning on site. Gas boilers are used at Woodhurst Park with the water flow in the under- floor heating system controlled by Gaia manifolds and thermal actuators. Grundfos the over and above pump provider

Mention the name Grundfos and most people will think heating circulators. However, there is much more to Grundfos than this and today. Although these include the well-known Grundfos UPS2 and ALPHA3 heating circulator ranges and the SOLOLIFT range of macerators that have become increasingly

popular in recent years, today Grundfos can supply a range of additional pump ‘specialists’ that can meet a host of other specific demands, this includes a comprehensive range of shower booster and universal head shower booster pumps. The latest kid on the block is the WRAS approved Grundfos SCALA2. Each unit is a fully integrated water booster pump that will provide the perfect water pressure to up to eight water outlets.
