New retail park receives Gatic CastSlot drainage system

  • 25 May 2017

Gatic’s CastSlot drainage system has been installed at Queens Retail Park, a new 16 acre retail development in Preston.

The new shopping centre features 80,000 sq ft of open retail space and parking for over 800 visitors. Cassidy and Ashton designed the project, ‘Gateway to Preston’ as it develops into a highly visible entrance to the city.

Gatic’s CastSlot with a Treadsafe option was specified as the slot drain for the landscaped areas which needed major works. Working with Castle House Construction and supplied through specialist civil merchant JDP, CastSlot was suitable for the new development.

The slot drainage system is designed with an unobtrusive profile that sits discreetly within concrete, asphalt or block paving.

The slot opening is reduced from 30mm wide to 2 x 9mm wide slots with the Treadsafe option, making the channel safe to cross for pedestrians. The reduction in slot opening has no impact on the intake capacity of the system.

Andy Lyon, Project Manager, Castle House Construction comments: “We were impressed by Gatic’s CastSlot Treadsafe system – it’s an easy to install, reliable and cost effective drainage solution. The team were on hand to help with any technical issues and worked closely with us. The finished site looks great and the scheme obtained a BREEAM ‘very good’ rating.”
