Seacoal House A tall building roof garden – in central London.
When it came to providing a new, sustainable roof garden at Seacoal House to replace a failed sedum roof, Gustafson, Porter and Bowman chose Polypipe to trust as their preferred partner. Our expert design team engineered a solution that manages rainwater at source using our Permavoid geocellular system – ideal for Blue-Green roofs with its shallow depth and 95% void ratio. The roof now provides important amenity space for people to enjoy, whilst enhancing the building with a sustainable drainage solution.Download case study
Providence Tower high rise repetition made simple
When it came to specifying a drainage system for Providence Tower, Polypipe was the partner of choice, working alongside the contractor to meet exact project needs. The Terrain Fabrication Service manufactured a bespoke product off-site and delivered it complete – making for a faster, smoother more efficient installation; whilst saving on cost and on-site labour time. The fabricated drainage stacks were also manufactured using Terrain FUZE for its lighter-in-weight attributes for a more manageable installation compared to traditional materials. But don’t take our word for it, download the case study and see how Providence Tower and its 43 storeys takes insight, off-site.Download case study

Millbrook Tower stands at 240 feet tall and homes residents in 144 flats and when it needed a replacement drainage system, we used Polypipe’s Live Stack Replacement Service. This not only meant the system was designed and fabricated to exact specification and delivered to the site but, residents could remain in their homes while the work was completed.Download case study
