Llanmoor Homes, a family run housebuilder in South Wales, has turned to ACO Water Management’s StormBrixx with man access for the management of rainwater on its Rogerstone, Newport development. With the system being proposed for adoption under a Section 104 Agreement (Water Industry Act 1991) subject to the successful completion of a trial, its ease of access for monitoring and maintenance was key.
Llanmoor Homes has been utilising SuDS solutions on a number of its developments to capture and retain as much water as possible at source and ultimately provide discharges much closer to the undeveloped state. With this attenuation system on its Rogerstone site being potentially adoptable (dependent on a successful trial), the principle of maintenance was key and therefore the system’s access and maintenance ability was paramount in its specification.
The company has utilised underground geocelluar storage systems in the past on several projects but the lack of access was a real issue. For the Rogerstone development Llanmoor Homes had a requirement for 200 m3 of attenuation and was looking to take the use of geocelluar storage to the next level in terms of the monitoring and maintenance. ACO’s StormBrixx system with its man access provision met the project’s exacting needs. This project is providing the ideal trial for this product where it will be monitored for 12 months. It is hoped it will then become an exemplar project, showing the real benefits of utilising an accessible and maintainable system such as StormBrixx for sites such as this.
StormBrixx is designed for surface water infiltration and attenuation. Its open cell structure allows easy access for CCTV and jetting equipment, which enables the whole system, including all the extremities, to be inspected and maintained from just a few access points.
