Good impression right from the start

Close up of custom slotted channel for Central St Giles

Managing a major building site in a very busy part of London was no mean feat for the main contractor, Bovis Land Lease and landscape contractor, Grants International. All the surface water drainage components supplied had to be easy to transport and installed without the use of handling machinery.

  • Channels weighed no more than 17 kg per unit

  • Lightweight, flexible and also extremely stable and durable

The RECYFIX channel components made from our 100% recycled PE-PP were matched with galvanised steel slotted inlets with neck height and slot width specifically made to match the decorative stone paving slabs.

Lightweight products, a high degree of flexibility and maximum durability and safety were the decisive factors of why these solutions were acquired for this project.

BREEAM rating for Saint Giles

In a commitment to sustainability, the Saint Giles project has earned an excellent BREEAM rating. The rainfall from the roofs and public square is collected, treated and stored for re-use in irrigation of the planted areas. It is estimated around 3000 m3 of water can be collected per year. This, alongside other carbon saving features such as green roofs and roof gardens which attenuate rainfall and heat build-up with ecological benefit, gave the development an excellent BREEAM rating.
