Alumasc’s Flushjoint offers rainwater solution for CityScape

Alumasc Rainwater’s contemporary Flushjoint aluminium downpipes have been used on a sophisticated new scheme built under the National Housing Trust initiative in Edinburgh.

Built in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council, Scottish Futures Trust and Scottish Government, the "CityScape" complex features 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments close to the city centre, overlooking open parkland.

Alumasc’s Flushjoint aluminium downpipe system was specified by EMA Architects who required a contemporary design offering clean lines that would enhance the building’s stylish geometric architecture. Flushjoint features concealed spigots that give a completely smooth external appearance, with circular, square or rectangular pipes mounted on brackets standing clear of the structure, to perfectly complement modern building design.

More than 300m of Flushjoint was installed by CCG Scotland, the main building contractor for the development. Plumbing Supervisor at CCG, Greig Wilson, commented:

“The Flushjoint system provided an attractive and innovative drainage solution for Lochend, and the finished product looked very impressive in situ. Given that this was such a successful installation, we are already planning on using Alumasc products for our next prestige project which involves the conversion of an old hotel into residential apartments.”
