FP McCann's Box Culverts specified on Exmouth Housing Development

Precast concrete box culverts from FP McCann are being installed as a major element of the drainage network on Plumb Park in Exmouth, Devon.

This brand new housing site is being constructed by Taylor Wimpey in partnership with landowner Clinton Devon Estates.

Once complete, some 265 new homes will initially occupy the development with outline planning for a further 86 properties.

Helston based groundworks and civil engineering contractor, MJL Ltd is installing the site's drainage system which comprises five runs of box culvert sections all interconnected by pipes to form the large on-line network.

In total, 81 individual precast concrete box culvert units weighing a combined 890 tonnes have been supplied from FP McCann's Byley manufacturing depot, with the design team in Weston Underwood working closely with the drainage consulting engineers and MJL to ensure correct detailing of the bespoke culvert project.

Commenting on the box culvert drainage system, Marvin Lee, Site Manager for MJL says, “To install such a large storm attenuation tank in any other material than precast concrete, would be both costly and impractical. Precast concrete is a durable, long-life option that requires little to no maintenance in this type of drainage management scheme. The FP McCann teams at both Weston Underwood and Byley have worked closely with MJL site personnel to ensure the accurate detailing on the special precast units for this bespoke drainage project, enabling us to quickly install the system in a safe and efficient manner.”
