RAINBOX® attenuation chosen for 10-acre cutting edge office development

A RAINBOX® 3S attenuation system from water management specialists JDP has been chosen for a brand new 10-acre cutting edge office development just outside Durham. The £10 million site will be home to a new, state of the art, IT, data and marketing centre for leading wholesaler City Electrical Factors.

The project was designed by Newcastle based Faulkner Browns Architects, with the main contract for the project build awarded to Sir Robert McAlpine. Joyce Construction & Civils were subcontracted to implement the ground works package.

JDP was asked by Joyce Construction & Civils to design and supply an effective storm water drainage management solution with the capability to hold excess run off from the site during storms and to protect the impressive new facility.

Due to the flexibility and sustainability features of the crates, the JDP technical team proposed a storm management system incorporating the RAINBOX® 3S geocellular system.

A total of 300m3 of RAINBOX® 3S crates were supplied and delivered for quick and easy assembly on site.

The RAINBOX® 3S system consists of two half-boxes and a centre plate delivered flat-packed to site for easy transportation and assembly. Boxes and plates are quickly and simply snapped together to make a full-size crate.

RAINBOX® 3S is designed to have a high void ratio to maximise storage volume and is recommended for light and medium loading class usage. The crates are lightweight, and offer real benefits in terms of reduced time on site, speed of installation and in reducing transport costs, material costs and maintenance costs when compared with traditional alternatives such as stone filled pits.

JDP provides a range of products to create an effective water management system including flow controls and orifice plates, pump stations, permeable and non-permeable membranes, protection fleeces, silt traps and drainage pipework and inspection chambers.
