Alumasc Water Management Solutions (AWMS) and AquaSpira have signed a new collaboration agreement which will see the latest generation of adoptable rainwater attenuation solutions have emphasis on optimising performance while reducing both installation and maintenance expenses.
In bringing together water management specialists AWMS’ range of Gatic linear drainage systems with AquaSpira’s innovative large diameter Composite Steel Reinforced (CSR) pipe, engineers and contractors will reap benefits of substantial breakthroughs in material technologies and a gamut of design and on-site knowhow.
AWMS’ MD Steve Durdant-Hollamby spoke about how, from its inception, the company have always looked to collaborate with partners who are dedicated to advancing how they manager surface water.
“Our partnership with AquaSpira will put us in the best possible position to meet the many design challenges presented by climate change, flood prevention and sustainable development,” he said.
Neil Wallace, Managing Director at AquaSpira is predicting more innovations coming out of this shared approach.
“Working together, we will be able to develop new connective technologies that will allow a fully integrated and optimised approach to water management right across the built environment,” he said.
Offering a 95% weight saving over an equivalent concrete pipe, AquaSpira’s large diameter CSR pipe system drastically cuts down on installation time and costs.
Its HDPE encapsulated structural steel core provides an incredibly smooth inner surface with a ribbed external profile that binds tightly with the bedding stone.
Entwining the benefits of CSR pipe with Gatic’s famous range of high capacity slot drainage technologies offers a substantial and versatile solution package for surface water attenuation across all applications.
Steve Durdant-Hollamby concluded on how developers are ever more so focussed on the long term operational and maintenance costs of these below ground assets.
“Gatic slot drains have proven durability and, like CSR pipe, are easily accessed for cleaning and maintenance,” he said.
