Hepworth Clay brings it home for new housing development
Commissioned by developers Anwyl Homes and Bellway Homes to provide a tried and tested below-ground sewage system for a large housing development in Llay, Wrexham. Civil engineering experts Hollingsworth Brothers worked with Wavin to deliver the ideal solution.
With over 7,000m of pipe required for the road and sewer drainage systems that make up the 350-home development, Hepworth Clay was quickly identified for the project due to its strength, durability and long-life expectancy. Geraint Dodd, buyer at Hollingsworth Brothers explains, ‘We knew this was going to be a large, 48-week project so we wanted a product we knew and trusted’.
Hepworth Clay SuperSleve
Suitable for adoptable, domestic, commercial, or industrial drainage, Hepworth Clay SuperSleve pipes and fittings are
all made in the UK, providing high durability and longevity. With over 150 years’ expertise working with the material, using locally sourced raw clays and moorland rainwater, the production process of SuperSleve offers an impressive environmental profile.
Chris Pancutt, Keyline’s Deeside branch manager said, ‘Hepworth Clay is a popular choice for contractors around this area, and we often find that clay drainage is specified from the beginning of a project. We’ve worked with Hollingsworth Brothers for a number of years on various projects, so we knew this solution would be a great fit for the team.’
