Concrete Pipes

Welcome to the British Precast Drainage Association (BPDA)

Here at BPDA we provide information and advice on concrete pipes, manholes, box culverts, and other precast concrete drainage systems, including sustainable drainage systems (SuDS).

BPDA is formed from the integration of the Concrete Pipeline Systems Association (CPSA) and the Box Culvert Association (BCA). BPDA takes its place as one of the specialist product groups within the British Precast Concrete Federation.

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. Precast concrete pipe drainage provides a wide range of choices, which can lead to:

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

The inherent strength and durability of precast concrete pipe drainage can help protect the system during construction and throughout 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. Precast concrete pipe drainage provides proven long term performance and can help minimize lifetime costs.
