Stormcrate Offers Stormwater Solution
At New Primary School
For a new primary school currently under construction in the West Midlands, Brett Martin’s lightweight and easy to install StormCrates have been used to create an underground attenuation tank for the temporary storage of stormwater, reducing the demand on built drainage.
In the Black Country town of Tipton near Wolverhampton, Sacred Heart Primary School is moving from its outdated Victorian home to a new state-of-the-art building just half a mile away.
In order to manage rainwater within the site and prevent flooding during periods of bad weather, the contractor Wilmott Dixon required a drainage solution that could be integrated within the site and found the solution in StormCrate, an engineered Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS).
Brett Martin provided the sub-contractor Forkers with 964 StormCrates which were used to create a 292 m³ underground storage tank, constructed at a depth of 840 mm, to offset stormwater run off from the developed area.
