POLYPIPE TERRAIN HELPS REDEVELOP A PIECE OF HISTORY
An above-ground drainage system from Polypipe Terrain has been used on a high-profile project to transform the previous home of Arsenal Football Club into one of the most sought-after residential developments in London. Terrain Drainage plastic piping products have been installed throughout ‘The Stadium’ development at Highbury Square which now houses over 700 apartments in 1, 2 and 3 bedroom configurations.
The project involved the retention of the Highbury Stadium’s original West Stand facade and the Grade II listed East Stand facade. New accommodation blocks were created around the old pitch area, which has been transformed into communal gardens for the residents.
“We have worked on very many previous high profile developments and the level of engineering expertise we have brought to these projects has often been an important factor in winning the contract,” comments Adam Turk, Sales and Marketing Director of Polypipe Terrain.
In addition to its standard range of above-ground soil and waste products, Polypipe Terrain also supplied this project with quantities of bespoke 2-inch soil manifolds which were specially prefabricated offsite in the Terrain factory in Aylesford, Kent. This helped speed the installation process and save installation time on site. “This also demonstrated just how we are able to use our advanced manufacturing capabilities to meet the individual requirements of our customers,” adds Adam Turk.
“The plastic piping systems we provide are ideal for creating this type of bespoke product. They are also well-suited to today’s construction industry as they can easily adapt to suit the demands of offsite fabrication and other modern methods of construction.”
