The stadium’s extensive concourse and car park are drained using 800 metres of Hauraton’s fibre reinforced concrete FASERFIX® KS surface water drainage channels. In addition 400 metres of KS units were also installed to provide pitch-side drainage.
The Stadium is part of a multi million pound development that also includes the 43,964 m² Capital Retail Park, a 5000 capacity, IAAF approved International Athletics and community sports venue and a 70 room hotel.
Landscaped roads into the Retail Park incorporate over 600 metres of Hauraton ENVIROKERB kerb-side drainage. Having the appearance of standard concrete kerb, the components are in fact made from 100% recycled material that weighs far less than concrete, allowing units to comply with the maximum 25kg “one-man-lift” legislation.
The drainage in the 1500 space retail car park was a tricky problem. Because of its position between the Stadium and Retail development it was essential that rainwater run-off in this highly used area would be effectively drained. 530 metres of Hauraton RECYFIX® HICAP® high capacity, slotted drainage channel was found to be the answer. A further 495 metres of HICAP® were used to drain the commercial access areas.
