Durapipe is the cool choice for chilled water in regeneration scheme

Published:  01 June, 2012

Durapipe, chilled water
Chilled water is delivered from chillers to AHUs providing air conditioning for buildings in the regenerated Stockbridge Village in Merseyside by Durapipe SuperFlo pipework.

Chilled water from chillers in the £25 million redevelopment of Stockbridge Village in Merseyside is carried from chillers to air-handling units by Durapipe SuperFlo ABS pipework in sizes up to 110 mm. The AHUs in turn provide air conditioning for the primary school and leisure-centre buildings of the project. There is also a swimming pool, state-of-the-art gym and leisure facilities, and a learning resource centre.

A&B Engineering selected the Durapipe solution. Associate director Kevin Sykes comments, ‘We have used Durapipe SuperFlo on previous projects, and it has always been quick and easy to install, as well as providing exceptional long-term performance capabilities.

‘It is easier to install than traditional materials and eliminated the need for hot works, which, combined with its lightweight nature, significantly reduced labour time and cost for us.’Benefits of the system include a 50-year design life.
