The Alder Hey Children’s Health Park in Liverpool has benefited from the installation of high performance Roof Outlets and SML above ground drainage, designed and supplied by Harmer Drainage.
The £250m paediatric medical facility aims to set a new benchmark for the delivery of children’s healthcare in the UK, it includes: six wards, a large critical care unit, 16 theatres and a host of clinical services, as well as shops and cafés set across 60,000 sq. metres of floor space.
Designed by Architects BDP, the building itself incorporates a mixture of curved and flat roofs to enhance the overall design, whilst the surrounding park area and large windows help to blur the lines between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
The hospital won the Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award at the British Construction Industry Awards.
To help achieve the high performance build set out in the design brief, Harmer SML cast iron soil and waste pipes, in addition to high capacity aluminium flat roof outlets were specified.
Harmer SML is a dry jointed above ground drainage system that is BBA certified, Kitemark accredited and CE Marked conforming to BS EN 877. The system is noise attenuation tested to BS EN 14366:2004 and is non-combustible, meaning that fire protection collars are not necessary.
Ideal for flat roof drainage applications, Harmer outlets are lightweight, non-corrosive and highly durable. The high flow performance ensures the outlets drain up to 4 percent more roof area than conventional gravity outlets.
