Alumasc Rainwater, part of Alumasc Water Management Solutions (AWMS), has featured in part of phase one of a £48m project to redevelop the Royal Edinburgh Hospital.
The building contains 185 mental health bedrooms and accommodates an adult acute mental health inpatient service.
Alumasc’s aluminium Guardian security downpipes were the ideal match for this contemporary building. The range is purposely designed for high security environments and benefits from a sharp aesthetic look.
The downpipe profiles are fitted flush to the wall with a unique concealed bracketry and jointing that makes them vandal resistant and anti-climb.
Architects NORR worked with contractors Morrison Construction to deliver the project.
The style of the building meant regular gutters and downpipes would not work, so Alumasc Rainwater’s technical team were tasked with designing and manufacturing a bespoke solution to overcome this, as well as delivering it within the required timescale.
This unique service was greatly recieved by Morrison and helped avoid potential problems and delays at a later stage of the project.
Guardian downpipes are available in BBA approved polyester powder coated finish, with a range of 26 standard RAL colours, along with the ability to match any RAL or BS colour.
