A new 450,000sq ft Lidl distribution centre scheme, equivalent to six professional football pitches, alongside Junction 9 of the M6.
Marshalls' Civils & Drainage Solution
The scheme required a robust, high capacity and high loading drainage system that could withstand a high volume of water and heavy vehicle overrun.
We value-engineered the original design using Drexus XL as it enabled a more cost-effective install in terms of speed, but more importantly a high inlet and hydraulic capacity.
Drexus XL provided 38% more slot inlet area than an equivalent straight slot assuming the same width. On the 440m of Drexus XL supplied to the project, this equates to 615m of inlet slot; this extra 175m of slot provided both interception and ongoing maintenance for the client.
The scheme was designed to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, with energy and water efficiency.
