Hauraton surface drainage and service channel systems installed at Central Park, Avonmouth

At 600 acres, Central Park, Avonmouth, Bristol is a warehouse and distribution development, strategically located between the M49 motorway on its Eastern boundary and the A403 to the West.

The shear size of the Central Park development has meant that various companies have invested the Park’s facilities. With areas designated for HGV access and hard standing, car parks and areas accessed by smaller commercial vehicles, the road and yard surfaces employed included concrete, asphalt and block paving. This meant various types of surface channelling were required by the contractor, Churngold Construction, to ensure the drainage needs of the site as a whole. Hauraton systems; RECYFIX® HICAP®, FASERFIX® SUPER, RECYFIX® MONOTEC and ENVIROKERB were chosen to meet the drainage requirements. FASERFIX® SERVICE channel was also specified to house cables and coolant pipe-work.

Cat Jones, the Hauraton Project Manager for this job, commented; “Although the original Hauraton channel selection was agreed, specification changes during construction meant the channels needed to be changed at short notice. Working closely alongside the contractor ensured that when changes were required we quickly provided a solution that ensured site-work could continue without delay. Detailed project management is essential when dealing with large sites”.
