StormCrates Provide Storm Water Management at Poplar Grove Development 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.

Blue Roof, Green Extensive, Huddersfield University, UK

ABG creative geosynthetic engineering

The design in this project was to have a Green Roof and warm roof system The aim was to place standard green roofs which retains water but allows most of the rainfall to run into buried SuDS tanks. Following consultation with ABG the design was changed to the ABG Blueroof system. The primary advantage of the system is that utilising the roof construction for water storage reduced the need for underground attenuation tanks. The simplicity of the design allowed for attenuation capacity and green roof installation at the same time saving the client time and money.
StormCrate is a Runaway Solution at Coventry Housing Development

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.

Blueroof - Green Biodiverse, Moreland Primary School, Islington, UK

ABG creative geosynthetic engineering

Moreland Primary School is a purpose built school, nursery and Children's Centre requiring a multipurpose usable outdoor space. Due to lack of space, the ground attenuation tanks planned would reduce site storage and limit access to other trades, therefore delaying the project, The challenge was to develop a storage/discharge system which wouldn't impact the project and be sensitive to the local biodiversity action plan. ABG designed a versatile Blue Roof System removing the need for attenuation tanks and allowing the roof finishes required. ABG bio-diverse roof system helped maximise the BREEAM credits laid out in the action plan

Gardens Sorted

Gardens Sorted

Lindab Ltd

Eco conscious barn conversion Landscape Design company Gardens Sorted specialise in renovation and bespoke garden installations. This project is a former farmyard and threshing barn conversion, the brief was to follow sustainable principles, the artifacts used around the garden are largely reclaimed, reused or recycled agricultural items.The client gardens by organic principles therefore the need for non-PVC galvanised rainwater goods was paramount. Chris Bligh, designer and installer at Gardens Sorted describes the installation: ”The rainwater solution required the high roof gutters to be deep profile, maintenance free, non-blocking outlets, and a long elegant downpipe into the storn water drain accross the yard. The addition of a rainwater diverter at the lower section afforded connection to a pressure water hose under grounded to two bends emptying into a reclaimed galvanised water tank. The hose is always full of water to the height of the tank. The important value of this is that the client can then dunk a large watering can into the deep water at waist height.” Chris adds that Lindab’s Rainline products are very good and he was grateful for a high standard of customer service.

SuDS Permeable Paving - Attenuation Car Park, Sudspave, Devour, Holmfirth, UK

ABG creative geosynthetic engineering

In 2017 permission was granted for the re-devlopment of an abandoned mill in Holmfirth into a cookery school and restaurant. The design required the car park to look as natural as possible but to withstand the manoeuvring of large delivery vehicles. ABG offered a re-engineered solution showing that a porous type 3 attenuation stone over the whole car park removed the need for expensive attenuation tanks. The main car park was covered in Sudspave interlocking pavers coloured to match the gravel. Truckcell was used for the turning area and filled with the same gravel for a natural finish.

J Range & Control Panels - The Scottish Salmon Company

T-T

The Scottish Salmon Company was losing approximately 5000-6000 fish to a skin disease that was amongst the fish born in seawater habitats. They needed a process that would clean the fish before putting them into the farming habitats. This freshwater cleaning process would reduce the lost fish to around 6. The client approached T-T for a solution that would transport 4000m3 per day from a freshwater source to a holding tank for the fish to be cleaned in once delivered. The pumps would need to transfer the water quickly when the Well Boat arrived.

Blue Roof, Green Extensive, Rathbone Market, London, UK

ABG creative geosynthetic engineering

The designer obtained consent under the latest SuDS regulations in the densely build area of London. Restriction on outflow rates to sewers demanded high attenuation. The original design for stormwater attenuation involved discharging tanks under the ground. This was expensive and took up valuable space, an alternative was required. ABG proposed their Blueroof system which could be installed directly on to the hot melt waterproofing system allowing various surface finishes. Due to height limitations a cascade system was used. Various roof finishes included paved access, landscaped areas and bio diverse to attract wildlife. This increased the potential for BREEAM points.

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.
