POLYPIPE TERRAIN Reaches Out To Sea To Rebuild An Historic British Institution

An historic British landmark has been rebuilt with help from Polypipe Terrain. The company’s Terrain Soil and Waste range of plastic pipes and fittings have been used as part of a £51 million project to rebuild The Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare, which was destroyed by fire in 2008.

The solvent-weld Terrain system was chosen to create a new piping system which carries soil and waste, underneath the new boardwalk, between the pier’s holding tank and the main seafront drains. “Once the system was installed, there would be no easy access to it if any problems arose, so it was vital that a thoroughly proven and reliable system was chosen,” explains Polypipe Terrain’s Andy Benden. “Given the unusual location, the system’s ability to withstand the effects of the harsh marine environment over a long period was also crucial. “

Polypipe Terrain made visits to the site to advise on the most effective system design for this unique application. “We were able to give guidance on details such as expansion and contraction joints and that meant we could be sure that the system will go on giving outstanding performance for many years to come,” adds Andy.

The Terrain system was specified on the basis of its light weight, ease of installation and the flexibility offered by the 4” and 6” diameter system components

This is the second time that the 1904 Grand Pier has been rebuilt, the first time being after a major fire in 1930.
