Aliaxis UK demonstrated the power of customer intimacy and its role in driving innovation when it was asked to propose wastewater drainage systems for a new high-rise residential building in Glasgow.

As part of its plans to redevelop the Harbour district on the north bank of the River Clyde, the City of Glasgow gave the green light for Granary Quay, a 16-storey, 342-unit build-to-rent complex.

The developer, Dandara Living, was impressed by the features of our triple-layer dBlue drainage system, thanks to its acoustic performance, ease of installation, resistance, and minimal maintenance requirements.

When Dandara asked us to suggest other innovations, we took their team to our Northampton drainage test facility. At 96 metres, the single stack tower is the tallest test facility in the world.

It is equipped with active drainage and ventilation, 40 flushable toilets at different levels and a raft of monitoring and control systems.

Thanks to this exceptional reference, Dandara opted to install active drainage solutions including the Positive Air Pressure Attenuator and our HDPE drainage range.

This resulted in cost and time savings and allowed them to replace secondary venting, increasing the overall rentable space in the building. A win for us – and for the customer.
