Component Developments External Drainage Concord College

October 2019

Concord College is a co-educational international boarding school for children between the ages of 13 to 19. It has a reputation for impressive grades, and even more impressing facilities. Component Developments’ were approached to help design, manufacture and supply the stainless steel drainage to the exterior of the new science block.

This project was the architect’s final job before he retired, and his tools of choice were a pencil and paper. This meant that Component Development’s had to draw up his designs on AutoCad to ensure the dimensions, and radius of the channels would be exact.

The final design agreed was for curved slot drains and drainage channels that had the same radius as the curve of the building above. Due to the curve in the slot drain, Component Developments had to include multiple discrete access points within the slot drain, which could be infilled and hidden with the floor finish, whilst still allowing access to the system if required.

From drawing approval it took 3 weeks to manufacture and despatch to site as per the request of our client.

The final solution was a sustainable, impressive drainage solution which mirrored the architect’s vision and bought it to life.
