McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, has used our plastic pipe solutions for 12 new developments across Scotland in areas including Edinburgh, Perth, Paisley, Glasgow and Kinross.
Already a major force in Scotland with 3,600 apartments over 80 developments, McCarthy & Stone is planning to double the size of its business over the next few years.
Looking to form lasting partnerships with building products manufacturers and suppliers to deliver its ambitious new build programme, the property developer is utilising pipework from Durapipe UK for the cold water systems installed within all of its new Scottish developments.
Located across Scotland, the developments are a mix of private retirement apartments and assisted living developments and are all constructed using a similar design and specification to ensure continuity of quality across its schemes. With the properties specially designed for retirement living, it is essential that domestic services, such as the cold water system, are reliable.
Durapipe pipe has been selected for the cold water mains within all of the developments and installed for the main central risers and distribution risers on each floor. Offering advantages to both contractor and end client, Durapipe ensures a high quality, reliable solution for McCarthy & Stone, while the installers benefit from the product’s superior installation properties.
Durapipe has completed the first four McCarthy & Stone developments, with construction of the next eight planned for completion by the summer of 2016.
