Water management for sporting venues – the guide

A new water management brochure specifically for the construction and management of sporting venues worldwide has been launched by Polypipe, a major international supplier of plastic piping systems.

Polypipe’s experience includes work on Wembley Stadium, Millennium Stadium, Etihad Stadium and Old Trafford. The company supplied pipework systems to every venue on the Olympic Park for the London 2013 Games.

The brochure introduces a complete water management offer for sporting venues and highlights key products for the unique challenges posed by sporting venues, such as Polypipe Terrain HydroMax, a siphonic drainage system designed to rapidly drain away extreme rainfall on the often complex roofing systems of stadiums and arenas.

Also featured in the brochure is Terrain Permavoid, a structural shallow geo-cellular modular system which collects sub-pitch rainwater to prevent flooding or water logging – a highly popular solution for sporting venues as Rod Green, Polypipe Technical Manager, explained:

Shallow application systems like Terrain Permavoid are vital in maintaining a playable sports surface in moderate and wet climates, protecting turf from both drought and flooding, therefore reducing the need for costly resurfacing. Polypipe’s expertise in water management and irrigation means we can advise on the correct system for each application, taking into account different climates worldwide, the demands of the sport in question, and the possibilities for water re-use.
