Contractor: Tonic Construction
Project Value: £15,000
Project size: 330m3 or 3 areas of attenuation tanks
Completion date: September 2022
Products used: StormForce using Wavin AqauCell CoreR
The biggest challenge for this project started on the site. Due to site level limitations, storage needed to be of an irregular shape to fit within the tight spaces of the parking area. Being based under the parking court, the tank needed to be able to withstand traffic loadings.
Tonic Construction have an environmental responsibility to ensure operations have minimal impact on surroundings and habitat, and products used during operations are environmentally friendly.
To overcome the complexities of the site, Wavin Technical and Wavin StormForce were called upon to provide an end-to-end solution, providing Tonic Construction with a single source solution of design, supply, and installation for piece of mind. Tonic Construction also utilisied Wavin Technical services to provide advice on technical aspects such as cover depths and drainage connections. Wavin Technical liaised with the drainage engineer to come up with a workable solution for the complex site. This is a perfect example of Wavin working with multiple parties to create an ideal solution for the client.
StormForce were able to supply, design and install 3 areas of attenuation using AquaCellCoreR within the tight programme of works, which suited all design and loading criteria. Ian Nicholls,Technical Manager, Tonic Construction
