Concrete pipe drainage systems have been the material of choice for over a century and can offer the most environmentally friendly and competitive installed option today. With a wide range of precast concrete pipes available the options vary, each offering different benefits including:

  • Installed cost savings
  • Faster construction
  • A long service life
  • Lower whole life cost
  • Reduced environmental impact

The strength & durability of precast concrete pipe drainage can help protect the system during construction and its long lifetime of operation.

There is a growing demand for sustainable urban drainage systems (SuDS). Concrete drainage can offer many advantages for proprietary SuDS components and systems. Legislation highlights the need for effective operation over the lifetime of the development.
