Mackenzie Construction very impressed with HS Pipe at Cala Homes site in Glasgow

Funke HS® Pipe was specified by Scottish Water for this difficult site by the River Clyde at Bothwell in Glasgow because of the failure of both concrete pipes and plastic pipes (from a prominent UK manufacturer) over previous years due to chemical attack.

The site was on a steep slope next to the River Clyde. Static calculations were carried out and it was decided that the HS® Pipe System was ideal for this application. The 630mm pipeline had to be installed on a terraced slope between the new houses and the river, with 1800mm concrete chambers at each change of direction.

Mackenzie Construction were awarded the work package by Cala Homes. It was the first time their team had used the HS® Pipe System and they were very impressed with the products, the ease of handling and the straightforward installation. The HS® Pipes were supplied to site shrink-wrapped to protect them from damage right up to the point of installation.

The project was supplied by MJ Abbott’s Scottish merchant, Civils and Drainage Supplies Ltd of Bellshill.

Cala Homes’ exclusive development of five bedroom homes, Riverside at Bothwell, enjoys the perfect semi-rural setting carefully nestled on the banks of the River Clyde and adds much sought-after contemporary style to this affluent South Lanarkshire village. With its enviable waterfront position and leafy surroundings, this location provides and overwhelming sense of tranquillity and exclusivity, yet is still within easy reach of Glasgow and the west of Scotland.
