Innovative Solution to Water & Waste Handling
Modular concepts are being seen more and more within the construction industry. Such techniques are being used for entire structures as well as structural components.
Precast concrete has led the way in providing contractors with an alternative to in-situ construction which can be more difficult, require heavy equipment and take longer.
More recently, synthetic materials such as plastics and fibreglass composites and other materials have been demonstrated to be as durable and reliable as an alternative to the heavier precast options available. Utility companies, particularly those involved with potable and waste water management, now use plastic and synthetic pipework, even for large diameter pipelines.
One company is now offering a simple solution to this sector, in the area of access and storage chambers - but one with a difference.
They have developed a flat-pack solution using composites and steel, thereby providing superior strength and eliminating larger, bulkier modules or elements of preconstructed units. Clients and contractors quickly recognised the benefits of this system especially as it was from an established supplier.
Two recent projects in France at Morbeque and the Parc du Mercantour are classic examples of how the system overcame logistical challenges as well as providing a fast, cost-efficient solution. The projects involved delivery and installation of the innovative ULTIMA Connect flat pack access chamber.
