Polypipe Reaches New Heights with appointment for Prestigious Residential Development
Thursday 10th August 2017
Polypipe Terrain has been appointed by project contractor Renaker to supply ventilation, drainage, and soil and waste systems for Owen Street Towers, one of Manchester’s most prestigious residential developments to date.
The project includes four impressive high-rise apartment blocks of between 38 and 64 storeys. The towers will offer 1,508 luxury apartments for residents in the heart of Manchester city centre.
Polypipe Terrain has been selected to supply the development thanks to its advanced engineered products, which are ideally suited for use in high-rise projects, and its years of experience in designing, manufacturing and delivering high quality, tailored systems for tall buildings.
The existing vent piping will be replaced by a P.A.P.A. and Pleura Vent System, eliminating the need for a secondary ventilation pipe. This will mean a reduction of the coring of floor slabs and a decrease in the requirement for vent penetrations through the roof, delivering greater freedom and flexibility for the towers’ design.
Terrain FUZE HDPE fabricated drainage stacks will provide a robust and reliable drainage system to meet the demands of 1,508 apartments. Its longer pipe runs are perfectly suited for use in tall buildings, with the presence of fewer joints reducing the potential for future leaks. Polypipe Terrain’s electrofusion jointing also improves system integrity, while ensuring quick and easy installation on site.
To meet the development’s soil and waste needs, Terrain’s PVC piping system will be installed, the tailored system showcasing its reputation for setting the industry benchmark for quality.
Polypipe Terrain’s ability to design, manufacture and deliver products to the exact specification required, together with its high-level service offering including on-site support and training, will also ensure substantial savings in time, labour and material costs.
The Owen Street Towers development is being overseen by main contractor Renaker and architects SimpsonHaugh and Partners, who together have been responsible for some of the UK’s most iconic projects.
