Structural Drainage - Deckdrain, Reservoir Drainage, Hagbourne Hill, UK

ABG creative geosynthetic engineering

As part of the Didcot water supply system, Thames water constructed a new twin cell covered service reservoir at their facility at Hagbourne Hill. Traditional construction required a protection board against the water proofing before back filling with clean no lines drainage stone. This method is costly and time consuming. A geocomposite layer was considered if it could meet the job of the drainage stone. ABG Deckdrain was proposed and approved to form a combined protection and drainage layer. The cuspates are thermally bonded to the textile. Deckdrain is quickly installed therefore reducing time and costs on site.

Brett Martin Plumbing & Drainage

To reduce the risk of flooding during times of excessive rainfall, the developer of 8 luxury homes on a site in Lower Pilsley, near Chesterfield, required a drainage solution that could be integrated within the site and found the solution in StormCrate, an engineered Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS). A total of 110 StormCrate modular units were used to create a 29m? underground storage tank capable of holding 29,000 litres of rainwater and this was wrapped in an impermeable geomembrane to create a sealed underground tank.

StormCrate is a Runaway Solution at Coventry Housing Development

Brett Martin Plumbing & Drainage

For this new housing development in Coventry, surface water management was a key consideration to prevent any future flooding and Brett Martin’s StormCrates were used to create an underground attenuation tank for the temporary storage of stormwater which would reduce the demand on the built drainage. The development of 15 new homes was built on an area susceptible to flooding during periods of bad weather. 180 StormCrates were used to create a 54.5m³ underground storage tank, constructed in three layers at a depth of 2m beneath the entrance road, to offset stormwater run-off from the developed area.

Structural Drainage - Reservoir Base Uplift, Deckdrain, Rushmore STW, Telford, UK

ABG creative geosynthetic engineering

Part of Severn Trent Waters e5 Major Projects Programme, Rushmore STW is a strategic centre for sludge digestion, de-watering and cake storage. Due to expected growth in the local population the PSTs would need refurbishment. A high water table below ground meant stability is constantly changing meaning tanks suffer uplift pressures when empty. Encouraged by the e5 programme a novel solution was proposed. Deckdrain 700S/NW8 was proposed as an uplift pressure reliever and under slab drainage. Deckdrain has a filtration layer and is virtually impermeable. Deckdrain structure exceeds the drainage capacity of 500mm stone giving significant cost savings.

Embankment Drainage - Rail Embankment, Pozidrain, Certaldo Poggibonsi Railway, Italy

ABG creative geosynthetic engineering

In 1850 the Siena to Empoli railway line became a central part of the wine making industry. After being destroyed in WW2 it was rebuilt to modern standards. 20KM of new embankment required construction to upgrade the railway to meet current requirements. This required 500mm starter layer requiring thousands of cubic sqm of stone. ABG Pozidrain was proposed as a starter layer. The 7mm cuspated drainage layer has six times higher flow capacity than traditional stone. In addition each delivery covered 9500sqm meaning a 400 lorry reduction on the project. This subsequently reduced the carbon footprint on site.
