Sustainable Urban Drainage systems

Due to worrying levels of climate change taking place year upon year, rainfall in the UK is becoming less predictable and more damaging.

When it comes to weather patterns, global warming can cause many long-term problems, but for our customers, one of the more immediate concerns is adequate drainage systems.

Sustainable Urban Drainage systems

Our systems enable contractors to achieve their obligations under building regulations (H) more cost effectively than using alternative solutions. Our systems also provide the additional benefits of developing green spaces for residents.

Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) are designed to mimic nature and typically manage rainfall close to where it drops. The systems are considered to be environmentally beneficial, causing minimal or no long-term detrimental damage.

We have tailored a range of Geosynthetic products specifically aimed at promoting and prolonging SUDS.

Often the most efficient and effective method of control is by installing infiltration and/or attenuation tanks, which act as slow release reservoirs for surface water run-off.

Our solutions

Our range of products to reduce the impact of unwanted extreme weather conditions includes water management systems, attenuation tanks – which act as slow-release reservoirs for surface water run-off – and SUDS-compliant permeable paving.

 

We also offer pond liners, which include prefabricated membranes and geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs), as well as bespoke headwall furniture such as grills, handrails and safety chains. Our woven and non-woven geotextiles – more simply described as protection fleeces – are a popular solution that protect attenuation tanks and stop problematic cases of impermeable membranes becoming punctured.

 

Choosing a complete system from a single, trusted supplier – like Wrekin – helps to ensure an effective and sustainable drainage solution across the whole project.

Success stories

Ornamental Pond at Fallow Park housing development

Fallow Park is an exclusive housing development on the outskirts of Cannock. The rural setting of the development and close proximity to Hawks Green Nature Reserve influenced the design and installation of shared recreation areas on the site.

A 1400m2 ornamental pond with green space was designed to enhance the development and provide a habitat for a variety of wildlife.The ground conditions and nature of the finished pond meant that an impermeable membrane would be required to line the pond.

Old Colwyn Embankment Repairs

Wrekin were approached by Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Limited, and Atkins to advise on a suitable geotextile to go beneath rock armour as a heavy duty separation and filtration layer. The geotextile would form part of the necessary repair work to Network Rail Wales’ embankment at Old Colwyn, Conwy.
