An End to End Solution
TSL Projects engaged Capcon Engineering to design, supply, prefabricate and install a highly efficient roof drainage system for a 10,000m² data centre for their client, Amazon. The building in Southwest England has a large, double-pitched roof, typical of data centres and logistics facilities.
A traditional gravity drainage system could have been proposed for the large building and would have worked adequately. However, our expert rainwater drainage designers determined that siphonic drainage would be the most efficient and effective rainwater roof drainage solution.
Capcon’s design team determined the two eaves’ gullies would require four siphonic drainage systems, which would terminate in strategic locations to suit the on-site civils requirements. In the final design, only 14 outlets and 367m of fully welded HDPE pipework, capable of draining 590 litres / second, were required to drain the 10,000m2 building.
Siphonic Solution Reduces Costs And Raw Materials
