Context

The Derriford Hospital Interchange scheme is part of a master plan of highway improvements on and around the Plymouth's  ‘northern corridor’.

Developed in partnership with Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust, the scheme cost just over £2 million and was part-funded through the Heart-of-the-South-West Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

A cost-effective lifetime cost was the key aspect of this project, along with a robust system which would never need to be replaced as there is a high level of trafficking within the area; Derriford hospital is Plymouth’s second busiest bus interchange, and the constant bus overrun meant a high loading drainage solution was crucial.

Product supplied

Pave Drain was chosen as it provides a cost-effective solution, which is robust enough to withstand frequent heavy vehicle overrun. Even with the heavy trafficking, the system will never need to be replaced keeping the lifetime costs extremely low.

Through Marshalls’ concrete expertise and heritage in natural stone, Pave Drain was developed to complement their most popular paving products. By having a co-ordinating top unit, the drainage can blend seamlessly with the surrounding paving, with no need to break up the overall aesthetic with a traditional grated solution, whilst also retaining an excellent inlet and loading capacity.

Amey utilised Marshalls’ complimentary design service for the drainage packaging of the scheme which ensured a fast turnaround. This was important as the scheme was delayed by 3-4 months before construction works could proceed, which affected travel in the surrounding area, so speed of construction was essential.

Outcome

Marshalls was ultimately able to deliver a drainage solution that met all the necessary requirements outlined by the client, and which is tough enough to withstand the heavy trafficking throughout its lifetime.
