JDP and Kier combine to provide effective stormwater management for housing development

Leading water management specialists JDP has supplied large diameter HDPE pipes for a stormwater attenuation tank to provide effective water management and protect a new housing development in Wheal Harmony, Redruth.

Kier Group one of the UK’s largest property and construction companies required an effective drainage solution to protect a new development of 65 affordable dwellings for Sanctuary Housing at Wheal Harmony, Redruth. JDP’s water management team supplied an attenuation tank of 59.5 metres in length comprising of 1500mm HDPE pipe from its depot in Launceston.

Large Diameter HDPE Pipes are a tried and tested method for carrying stormwater underground. Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) however, are much more than a single product. The objective is to design a system to deal with the flow at source, rather than transferring the problem further down the watercourse.

JDP has an extensive range of products that provide effective attenuation and infiltration including the recently extended RAINBOX® portfolio offering flexible solutions to minimise the risk to localised flooding and provide best practice SuDS.

Through its technical design department JDP provides expert design, advice and support for projects involving SuDS and ensures house builders and developers can achieve effective water management for each project.
