When using precast drainage products, it is important that you get the right information for the job. We recognize that you may have some important questions that you need to ask. Some of those questions occur regularly and we have collated these as Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and listed them, along with the answers, on our new FAQ, Search and Enquiry page.
Since the formation of the British Precast Drainage Association from the merging of the Concrete Pipeline Systems Association and the Box Culvert Association, the case for precast concrete drainage systems is stronger than ever. The new updated version of 20 Reasons to Use Concrete brings together in one useful booklet key benefits and references for precast concrete pipes, manholes, box culverts, sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) and other related drainage components.
