WATER TREATMENT AND
HOSPITAL GETS THE
Polypipe, the UK’s leading manufacturer
of sustainable drainage and water
management solutions, has supplied more
than 300,000 Permavoid and Polystorm-R
components for water attenuation systems
at the new £150 million Royal Hospital for
Children and Young People in Edinburgh.
Polypipe, working with primary
contractor Multiplex, has supplied 11
shallow attenuation tanks, that will hold a
combined volume of up to 2020m3, installed
at key points across the site. The tanks
have been installed under parking bays
and beneath crucial entrances, including
the hospital’s Accident and Emergency
departments by civil engineer and
groundwork specialist, Crummock.
An intelligent sub-base replacement
design was needed to store the appropriate
level of water, above the high water table,
that gathers on the site during heavy
rainfall. Following discussions with
Polypipe’s technical team, the Permavoid
geocellular system was chosen by the
project consultant engineer as the primary
engineered solution. Polypipe also supplied
the additional attenuation tank using
components from its Polystorm Range,
which included Polystorm R, Polystorm
Inspect and Polystorm Access.
The Permavoid tanks are being used
beneath permeable and non-permeable
paving, wrapped in geomembrane to
make the tanks watertight for attenuation.
Permatex, the polypropylene geotextile,
has been installed between the Permavoid
layers to ensure passive water infiltration
into the tanks.
The innate strength of Polypipe
geocellular solutions makes them ideal for
heavily trafficked areas, and the 95% void
fill ratio of the Permavoid system enhances
ground attenuation by storing excess water
below ground level, mitigating the risk of
localised flooding. www.polypipe.com

FERNOX HELPS MAINTAIN HEATING SYSTEM
EFFICIENCY IN SOLIHULL
When facilities support contractor, Dodd
Group, was tasked with improving the
efficiency and longevity of heating systems
within Solihull Community Housing’s
portfolio, the team selected the Fernox TF1
Omega Filter as the product of choice.
Significantly reducing the need for onsite
maintenance and repairs, this nickelplated,
brass in-line filter also prevents
increased heating bills for tenants and
consequently has a positive impact on the
eradication of fuel poverty.
Paul Davies, partnership manager at the Dodd Group, said: “To help offer ongoing
protection for central heating systems by capturing this debris, we specified the use of
the Fernox TF1 Omega Filter.
“Easy and quick to install, the TF1 Omega Filter is suitable for installation in even the
most confined of spaces, making it ideal for use on large contracts such as this, where
every property is different. Supplied with a 25-year warranty, the filter offers significant
long-term benefits for both Solihull Community Housing and its tenants.”
Helping to reduce the impact of fuel poverty, the TF1 Omega Filter ensures system
running costs do not increase, while maintaining the lifespan of both newly installed and
Maintained in-situ with no need to dismantle the unit, emptying and cleaning the filter
is a quick and mess-free process – an essential benefit for affordable housing providers
with large property portfolios. www.fernox.com
