The first major public building to be rebuilt in the city of Christchurch following the devastating earthquakes of 2011 is the new Justice & Emergency Services Precinct. This 300 million dollar project is led by New Zealand’s Ministry of Justice. The Marley New Zealand team supplied the Akasison Siphonic Drainage system for this prestigious project.
A major advantage of the concealed siphonic system is that it rapidly drains rainwater using horizontal pipes with no falls. This is a boon for architects, as it means less space required for services and higher ceilings, while making installation easier with no need to calculate falls.
Marley purchases the Akasison system from Akatherm, an Aliaxis unit with which the business has been working for a number of years. Working closely with Akatherm, the Marley sales team provided local design and technical support for the Akasison system. In this way, Aliaxis is raising the level of local knowledge to the benefit of all customers worldwide.
