Getting the right drainage system for your building project

Posted by judy


If you’re involved in construction projects, you’ll know how demanding they can be. The stakes are high when it comes to creating new buildings. Large sums of money are involved, and then there is the issue of safety to consider.

The key to success when it comes to these projects is attention to detail. It’s only by paying attention to every single element of the construction process that you’ll be able to achieve the results you’re after. For example, it’s imperative that you source suitable drainage systems. True, these solutions aren’t immediately obvious when you look at new buildings, but they quickly get noticed if they don’t work properly. Here at Alumasc we offer a host of superb water drainage systems and should have exactly what you’re looking for.

You’re not alone

You’re certainly not alone in seeking out drainage solutions. According to research conducted by Deloitte Real Estate, there has been an increase regional construction activity. The firm revealed that office, residential and student housing projects are all on the rise. Each and every one of these building programmes will require drainage products of some kind.

Deloitte Real Estate suggested that an improvement in developer sentiment has led to the rise in activity.

Facts and figures

In its UK Cities Crane Survey, the firm recorded an 80 per cent rise in the number of new schemes starting construction over the last 12 months. In total, 45 new projects have been launched across the country’s five major regional cities, namely Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Commenting on the figures, head of research at Deloitte Real Estate Anthony Duggan said: “Compared to the less than positive story last year, our regional research now illustrates a rise in development activity, matching the recent improvement in the UK economy.

“We have recorded construction increases in office space and student accommodation as demand for both continues to rise. Similarly city centre residential is beginning to appear back on the agenda with a number of schemes breaking ground.

Good across the board

Mr Duggan went on to note that while the majority of the development activity has occurred in Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow, the results are good “across the board”, with four out of the five cities showing an increase in new starts. This is up from last year, when just one city registered a rise.

In conclusions, the expert stated: “This increase in construction is unlikely to be a one-off.  With an improving residential demand, supply shortages appearing in a number of the commercial property sectors and signs of increasing activity from investors in regional commercial real estate. It looks like we will see more development activity over the next 12 months.”
