Type of works: supply of Harmer drainage products, including roof outlets and floor drains, from Alumasc.
Alumasc has provided a package of Harmer drainage products for a multi award-winning landmark building in Northern Ireland.
Harmer SML Soil and Waste Systems, Roof Outlets and Floor Drains were used at Mossley Mill in Newtownabbey which has achieved the Times/Gestener Office of the Year Award, NI Construction Excellence Award, RICS Award and Civic Trust Award.
Designed by Ostick & Williams, Mossley Mill was originally a flax spinning mill built in 1834 by a local cotton manufacturer. The recent £16million redevelopment by Graham Construction was undertaken in two phases, restoring the mill to its former glory. It is now home to Newtownabbey Borough Council and a Civic Arts and Cultural Centre with a new theatre, museum and conferencing facilities.
Harmer SML cast-iron socketless soil and waste system and Harmer floor drains were chosen for the public facilities in the Theatre. SML is an Agrement certified system and meets European Standard BS EN 877. This lightweight, dry jointed pipework system is suitable for both soil and waste or rainwater installations, offering ease of installation and low maintenance requirements.
Harmer floor drains comprise drain bodies in powder coated aluminium, available with an extensive range of round and square grates in stainless steel or nickel bronze. The range is suited to virtually any interior drainage application and all types of flooring. The drain bodies are available either trapped or untrapped, with vertical or horizontal spigot connection and with or without side outlets for connection to sink, bath shower and waste.
High performance Harmer AV roof outlets were chosen for the flat roof due to their high flow rates and suitability for use with all waterproofing membranes. Tey are available in aluminium alloy or gunmetal with spigot or screw connection for vertical, horizontal or 45º discharge.
Harmer SML, floor drains and roof outlets are fully compatible, enabling flexible design solutions to be found for all soil, waste and rainwater drainage applications.
