Durapipe SuperFLO pipework has been installed as part of the major £200m Collegelands development, one of Scotland’s largest regeneration projects.
The project consists of over a million square feet of space and has seen the regeneration of a former railway siding into a vibrant new commercial, leisure and residential district in Glasgow City Centre. Collegelands comprises a mix of offices, a hotel, multi-storey car park, student accommodation, residential units and retail space.
Durapipe SuperFLO pipework has been specified by contractors Vallectrics to cater for the cold water services on the 588 bed student accommodation aspect of the development.
Selected in sizes up to 110mm, Durapipe SuperFLO has been installed to transport chilled water from the main water storage tanks in the basement and then distribute it throughout the building to each individual flat.
Previous users of Durapipe UK pipework systems, Vallectric specified Durapipe SuperFLO due to its reliable proven track record and ease of installation that it provides.
Commenting on the project, Wayne Morgan from Vallectrics 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 the overall 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.
