Durapipe SuperFLO pipework has played a key part in the major £25m regeneration of Stockbridge Village in Merseyside.
Designed by 2020 Liverpool and constructed by Morgan Sindall, the development will comprise a new swimming pool, state-of-the-art gym and leisure facilities, learning resource centre, primary school and a children’s centre.
Durapipe SuperFLO pipework has been specified for the primary school and leisure centre elements of the multi-million pound construction project. A&B Engineering was tasked with installing an effective air conditioning system to service the primary school and leisure centre buildings and turned to Durapipe UK for the pipework requirements.
A&B Engineering selected Durapipe SuperFLO in sizes up to 110mm to transport chilled water from the chiller units to the air handling units that in turn provide the air conditioning throughout each of the buildings.
Commenting on the project, Kevin Sykes, Associate Director at A&B Engineering said: “We have used Durapipe SuperFLO on previous projects and it has always been quick and easy to install, as well as providing exceptional long-term performance capabilities.
“Easier to install than traditional materials, Durapipe SuperFLO eliminates the need for hot works and combined with its lightweight nature, significantly reduced labour time and cost for us.”
Durapipe SuperFLO is specially designed to cater for chilled or boosted cold water applications within the building services sector and offers many added benefits; the system is completely limescale and corrosion resistant due its smooth inner-bore and offers a 50-year design life.
