Building resilient cities together
Green Infrastructure isn’t new. But as we take steps to ensure our cities are sustainable and more resilient, it’s something that needs deeper understanding.
Green Infrastructure isn’t simply about adding greenery to urban developments – it’s about incorporating water management solutions to deliver multifunctional benefits that help reduce the impacts of climate change while improving the health and wellbeing of the people who live within our cities. Put simply, there can be no ‘green’ without ‘blue’.
Flood mitigation, rainwater storage, reusable resources and innovative ways to encourage trees, vegetation and biodiversity should all be a part of your project design. And involving us at the early stages will guarantee more considered results going forward; helping with Balanced Scorecard criteria, for example to ensure swift approval through a clear understanding of the procurement process.
Polypipe water management solutions for green infrastructure
To help you get the best from your next project by including Green Infrastructure, we’re producing two new ‘go-to’ publications; a design guide and a more concise brochure. They’ll provide useful information that covers the challenges the construction industry faces with climate change and urbanisation – whilst demonstrating resilient solutions simply by making space for water.Register your interest
Solving the problem with Polypipe
In the UK, we already have a clear understanding of the water management issues facing our cities and have responded by developing products for successful blue-green infrastructure with multifunctional benefits, which we’ve outlined below.
Surface water management
With hard man-made surfaces dominating our cities, managing run-off from heavy rainfall is vital to mitigating the risk of surface-water flooding. That’s why we’ve designed and manufactured systems to act as soakaways or to capture water at source and store it below and above ground.
How we do it
Our market-leading systems are designed to effectively support Green Infrastructure. Our engineered SuDS have been designed to work as an effective solution, either on their own or integrated with soft SuDS – providing controlled retention, attenuation and infiltration at source and further afield. These are some of the ways we can make it happen with the support of our specialist design, planning, products and systems.
- Green-Blue Roofs
- Rainwater Interception
- Filter Strips
- Filter Drains
- Permeable Paving
- Bioretention & Rain Gardens
- Attenuation Storage Tanks
- Infiltration Systems
- Detention Basins
- Ponds & Wetlands
- Cycle Paths
- Podium Decks
- Sports Pitches
- Treatment Systems
