Aquaflow SuDS System

Sustainable urban drainage systems (SuDS)Ever changing weather systems, increasing urbanisation and rapid run-off have put a tremendous strain on conventional storm water drainage systems, resulting in sewers and culverts becoming overloaded and contamination of streams and rivers.

SuDS help prevent flooding by replicating natural systems and processes to drain surface water run-off in a controlled way. This is done through collection, storage and cleaning before the water is slowly released back, either into the watercourses or directly into the ground. Alternatively the water can be stored and used for flushing lavatories, washing cars and watering plants. 

These systems are increasingly being used and will soon become mandatory on all new major developments.

Forterra continues to innovate with new investment

April 2022

The investment will capitalise upon growing market demand for brick slips, a material which combines the aesthetically appealing finish of traditional brick with a number of sustainability benefits, including the reduction of raw material and energy usage relative to the manufacture of traditional bricks.

Manufacture is expected to commence in late 2023, with a production capacity of up to 48 million brick slips per annum. This investment and the increased manufacturing output is expected to lead to the creation of 10 new jobs.

Brick slips, or “thin bricks” as they are sometimes known, are specially manufactured brick tiles which, when installed, have the appearance, colour and texture of an authentic brick wall. Typically used to create a façade wall, they are lighter weight than traditional masonry. Thanks to a speedier build-process, brick slips enable wind and water-tight buildings to be created earlier in the build programme. They also offer many of the benefits of standard bricks, including long-term durability, and easy and low cost maintenance.

The Accrington plant has been making bricks for well over 100 years. It is famed for its NORI bricks, whose iron-hard resistance and strength have been used in the construction of famous buildings such as the Empire State Building.

Currently estimated at around 120million units per annum, the brick slip market is predicted to grow significantly over the next few years, with a large proportion of the increase driven by the expansion of the modular construction market, as well as through a growing demand for new fire-safe façade solutions suitable for high-rise constructions.

Stephen Harrison, Chief Executive of Forterra, said, “This investment will allow Forterra to continue to be a leading player in innovation across the construction industry. We’re always on the watch for exciting new developments which can both reduce costs and secure an eco-friendly and sustainable output; the brick slips investment is a really exciting venture which will streamline our production and provide long term benefits, not only to the industry as a whole, but also to the Accrington area.”

The Racecourse Newbury - Formpave block and permeable paving

July 2018

Project case study: The Racecourse Newbury (housing)

Product: Golden Brindle and Charcoal block paving;
Aquaflow® SUDS with Red Brindle permeable paving

Developer: David Wilson Homes
Area: 8,000m2
Location: Newbury, Berkshire

A range of Formpave’s block and permeable paving has been specified by David Wilson Homes for its new £350 million development, The Racecourse Newbury.

The project is a joint venture by David Wilson Homes Southern and Newbury Racecourse to regenerate the 106-year-old site. Work is expected to take up to 10 years and will include improvements to the racing, hospitality, conference and events facilities, as well as providing up to 1,500 new homes.

Formpave is providing 8,000m2 square metres of Golden Brindle and Charcoal Grey block paving from its Royal Forest collection. In addition, the company is supplying Red Brindle permeable paving incorporating its Aquaflow Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS).

David Wilson Homes specified Formpave’s SUDS system to meet sustainable criteria under the Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM and to reduce the risk of local flooding.

David Wilson Homes’ project manager Daniel Pavely said: “Formpave offers a large range of paving options and colours which meant they were able to provide the perfect paving to complement the new homes and the surrounding area.”

Formpave has provided paving solutions to David Wilson Homes on a range of developments, using its design service to offer a bespoke solution that suits each project’s criteria.
