ACO Water Management have supplied their ACO StormBrixx SD geocellular attenuation units for Star Carr farm in Scarborough.
Given the size of the planned storage area and distribution yard, which would need to have capacity for up to 65 potato bulkers at a time, providing
Adequate surface water drainage for the new site was extremely important in this project due to the size of the planned storage area and distribution yard.
To achieve this, Stockdales appointed local construction contractors, Harlands Builders Ltd.
ACO StormBrixx SD (Standard Duty) is a general-purpose extension to ACO’s high-capacity patented plastic geocellular system, comprising of a 914mm high injection-moulded stackable crate design suitable for use in a wide range of construction applications.
While the StormBrixx HD (Heavy Duty) offers the ideal solution for Local Authority mandated projects, due to the option for integrated man access units which facilitates maintenance requirements.
The new SD range is the ideal cost-effective storage and infiltration solution for non-government funded work, such as the potato stores and distribution yard at Star Carr Farm.
The SD system offers a high void ratio of 97% which limits the volume of excavation required to achieve a specified storage capacity, reducing both the installation time and cost.
With a high vertical compressive strength of 350kNm2, it’s ensured the StormBrixx system is able to cope with the intense and regular load challenges posed by the site’s sustained HGV traffic as they come to collect the potatoes for delivery.
The StormBrixx crates were easy to construct with a snap-lock system and in Starr Car Farm the half crates were brick-bonded to each other, which evenly distributed vertical loads down the aligned pillars.
The entire 1290m3 StormBrixx project in just two working days.
