Concrete Pipes

Welcome to the British Precast Drainage Association

British Precast Drainage Association, bringing you information and advice on precast concrete drainage systems including pipes, manholes, box culverts and sustainable drainage solutions.

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

Concrete drainage systems have been the material of choice for over a century and remain the most environmentally friendly and competitive installed option today. Compared to other drainage materials, concrete provides a wide range of designs which can lead to:

  • Substantial installed cost savings
  • Faster installation
  • Lower environmental impact

There is a growing demand for Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS). Concrete can offer many advantages for proprietary SuDS components and systems. With legislation highlighting the need for effective operation over the lifetime of the development, concrete provides proven long term performance. The British Precast Drainage Association offers useful information and case studies on SuDS. Click here to find out more.

A proven service life over more than 100 years ensures that lifetime costs are kept to a minimum. The inherent strength and durability of precast concrete can help protect the system throughout its operation, during maintenance and extend replacement periods.

This website provides information from the British Precast Drainage Association to help you design, install and maintain concrete drainage systems and explains why they are the best option, now and for the future. As well as the information within the website there are also a range of informative downloads brought to you by the British Precast Drainage Association which will help in making the right decision for your specification.
