A new luxury care home being constructed in Woking is utilising our HTA pipework for the domestic hot and cold water services.
Due for completion in August 2017, Streets Heath is a luxury new two-storey retirement complex comprising 60 bedrooms, alongside a variety of communal living, dining and laundry areas. The project, being constructed for Hamberley Developments, a developer of luxury care homes and retirement living projects, required a reliable pipework system for the domestic hot and cold water system and Hamberley tasked mechanical engineers J&B Hopkins to deliver an effective solution.
Having successfully used Durapipe HTA for the last 12 years, J&B Hopkins had no reservations about turning to the specialist hot and cold water pipework system for this project. As a result, our HTA has been installed, in sizes up to 63mm, to transport water from the plant room on the ground floor along the corridor runs before dropping down to feed each individual room.
Commenting on the project, Neil Harding from J&B Hopkins said: “We always look to reduce the amount of copper we install on projects to minimise the risks associated with theft and so Durapipe HTA was the ideal alternative to copper for this project. We have used Durapipe systems for more than 12 years and have always been impressed. HTA was no different on Streets Heath, it was quick and simple to install, saving us time during the installation.”
HTA is a C-PVC pipework system specially designed for domestic hot and cold water services. The product’s lightweight nature, combined with its quick and easy solvent weld jointing technique, offers significant installed cost savings, compared with copper alternatives. HTA’s limescale and corrosion resistant properties also ensure it maintains its performance over the lifetime of the system with minimal maintenance requirements.
