IntegraPipe Spigot & Socket pipes from AquaSpira have been successfully installed by Costain on a recent Northumbrian Water scheme at Cullercoats. The large diameter steel reinforced polyethylene pipes were selected in preference to concrete pipes for a variety of reasons, ranging from cost efficiency to improved hydraulic performance.

With almost 1,000m of 1200mm diameter pipe and 200m of 1950mm diameter pipe to install on the major M62 Managed Motorway Scheme between J25 & 30 in Yorkshire, there was a great incentive for the Bam/Morgan Sindall JV and successful groundworks contractor K.Rouse Civil Engineering to explore alternatives to traditional concrete pipes. AquaSpira provided the perfect solution.
As part of a £9m investment by Severn Trent Water in Leamington Spa, NMC Nomenca are upgrading 3.5km of existing combined sewers under public highways throughout the town. AquaSpira Steel Reinforced Polyethylene composite pipes were specifically selected for use on this project because of the unique combination of installation efficiency and long-term structural & hydraulic performance.
With a busy programme of flood alleviation schemes planned, the Anglian Water One Alliance team were intrigued to find out if the clear theoretical benefits of AquaSpira Spigot & Socket Pipes would deliver tangible installation efficiencies and cost reduction.
AquaSpira pipes have been successfully installed on a complex project to replace a Local Authority adopted culvert beneath a road, originally constructed less than 10 years ago with corrugated steel pipes. The initial plan was to re-construct the culvert with 1800mm Ø concrete pipes. However, soon after the arrival on site of the first concrete pipes, it became apparent that it was going to be impossible to lay and joint such heavy, cumbersome pipes underneath the multitude of other pipes and services that had been laid above the original culvert.
