Construction of new luxury hotel benefits from Polypipe Terrain’s wide product and service offering

24 Oct 11 The construction of the first new-build luxury hotel to be developed in central London in almost 40 years is benefitting from Polypipe Terrain’s wide selection of products and services.

The UK’s largest British-owned plastic piping systems manufacturer was called on by building services engineers, Briggs & Forrester, to supply prefabricated Terrain FUZE soil stacks and Terrain PVC soil and waste drainage to the 10-storey, 5-star Knightsbridge Palace Hotel.

Terrain’s prefabricated FUZE soil stacks are particularly well-suited to hotels and other buildings that require repeat pipe work configurations, and have previously been used on many other prestigious developments in the UK. Together with Terrain’s PVC soil and waste drainage products they are helping create a reliable and maintenance-free system, which offers the benefits of rapid installation, a high degree of product quality and proven performance.

Tim Mills, Lead Project Manager at Briggs & Forrester comments: “With a site footprint of only 1,100m2, Polypipe Terrain’s ability of offer a bespoke, off-site prefabricated drainage solution was a key reason why we placed an order with them, as it would significantly reduce the quantity of individual piping components which would need to be installed in the restricted work area. Having worked successfully with them in the past, we were certain that they would be able to deliver on both quality and customer service.”

 “We were delighted to work with Briggs & Forrester once again, especially on such a high profile project as this,” adds Polypipe Terrain’s Stuart Herd. “The Knightsbridge Palace Hotel is set to be a unique, luxurious experience for guests and residents alike and we were able to help create a suitably high-specification drainage system for the project. “

Terrain’s PVC soil and waste drainage products are often regarded as the industry benchmark for quality, installation flexibility and product innovation, while Terrain FUZE offers a top-to-bottom solution for all above ground drainage and chemical waste applications.  They are supported by the company’s extensive prefabrication service. This enables customers to overcome specific on-site installation issues through the use of bespoke prefabricated units which can also help create significant reductions on installation times and on-site costs.

The Knightsbridge Palace Hotel will open its doors in 2012 on the site of the former Normandie Hotel, overlooking Knightsbridge Green in the heart of London.
