Major Investment For ACO PIPE®
Major Investment For ACO PIPE®
ACO Building Drainage, one of the world's leading commercial drainage specialists, has completed a major investment in new tooling at its stainless steel pipe plant in the Czech Republic and has plans for further investment at its UK manufacturing site in Bedford later this year.
Designed to support ongoing growth in ACO PIPE® sales across the UK and Europe, the investment in the Czech Republic has increased the company's annual pipe production capacity by 100% enabling it to offer exceptionally short lead times on UK deliveries. It also means ACO Building Drainage can produce 250mm diameter pipe to meet a growing requirement across Europe.
Andy Buchan, Divisional Managing Director of ACO Building Drainage, comments: "The continued investment in pipe production underlines our commitment to providing customers with a comprehensive range of the very best pipe systems and related products. It also supports the launch of new products and through our commitment to providing a high quality service with increased levels of stock, means we can now deliver pipe to UK customers almost immediately upon receipt of an order."
Manufactured from 304 and 316 grade stainless steel, ACO PIPE® products come in sizes ranging from 50mm to 250mm and are fully pickle-passivated as standard for optimum durability, virtually zero maintenance and long product life. ACO also manufactures a galvanised range - 'GMX'.
Suitable for use in a wide range of applications including commercial offices, transport infrastructure projects, food production facilities and even ship building, ACO PIPE® products feature a dual-seal design with double lip for optimum system reliability.
Products can be used with range of more than 2000 stainless steel accessories including branches, couplings, rat-stop pipes and bottle traps. They are also fully compatible with other ACO stainless steel systems to ensure the end user always gets the best high performance solution.
To support its investment and reinforce its position as a leading service provider for construction industry professionals, ACO Building Drainage is also expanding its in-house design and specification team.

ACO Building Drainage provided a bespoke drainage system for London's City Hall
Standing water removed from London’s City Hall
ACO Building Drainage provided a bespoke drainage system for London's City Hall, one of the most visually striking buildings in London and the home to the Mayor of London's office, the London Assembly and the Greater London Authority (GLA). Located on the south bank of the Thames, alongside the More London development, City Hall is one of the capital's most symbolically important buildings.
To develop a drainage system that would tackle the problem of standing water that was accumulating around City Hall's perimeter because of surface run-off from the granite slabs that surround the building, its proximity to the Thames, tidal action and high water table levels. The new system had to be designed so it could run exactly parallel to the faceted glass facade and be installed close to the structure in order to complement the building's design.
ACO Building Drainage recognised that instead of removing the original drainage system, the problem could be solved by increasing its capacity along a 35 metre section of the perimeter and installing a series of direct connections to the existing mains system. The new systems was manufactured in modular form so it could be easily assembled on site with each section comprising two 1500mm straight runs of 155mm wide grade 304 stainless steel channel. Sections were welded together to form a wide 'V' shape that fits exactly to the angle of City Hall's glazed panels. The flanged ends of each panel are precision cut to form the same angle when they're bolted together. The channel also has 'Heelsafe' grating which is locked in place for additional security and pedestrian safety. Two 100mm outlets connect the sump sections to the existing rainwater manholes.
"The close working relationship established from the outset between ourselves and the ACO team gave us the assurance that the system would operate effectively in all soil conditions and, critically, would take into consideration the very sensitive visual environment around this important building. It was also easy to install, ensuring minimal disruption to the main entrance."
