The first phase of a brand new residential development is nearing completion on Moneymore Road, Magherafelt. Consisting of 120 semi-detached and detached homes, Foxfield Hall is being constructed by Magherafelt based housing developer, Valor Homes.
To date, FP McCann’s manufacturing facility based just outside Magherafelt has supplied a large range of precast concrete drainage products, including a DN2400 StormBrake™ chamber and flow-control device to regulate the stormwater runoff on the housing development. FP McCann’s StormBrake™ is manufactured using grade 304L stainless steel for increased durability, strength and resistance to corrosion and chemical damage. It consists of three main parts: an inlet section, a vortex chamber and an outlet. Each part can be configured to provide the most efficient solution to specific site requirements.
FP McCann’s precast concrete pipes, catchpits, Easi-bases™, manhole rings, BT comms boxes, cover slabs, seating slabs, trapped gullies, dwarf walls and garden edging have also been supplied.
Speaking on behalf of Valor Homes, site manager Adrian Quigg says, “We chose FP McCann’s StormBrake™ system because it is manufactured in a factory-controlled environment, producing a strong high-quality watertight structured walled chamber, eliminating wastage associated with in-situ construction. Being delivered as a one-piece modular solution has reduced installation time and cost on-site, as well as minimising health and safety risks. FP McCann’s precast concrete drainage products were all supplied to the highest standard on a just-in-time delivery schedule.”
