A highly efficient pipework system from leading manufacturer Pegler Yorkshire, has delivered infinite benefits to endless modern construction projects across the UK, including a recent project by Scottish company Arc-Tech.
The £2.8m contract to construct the Hawkshead Centre was carried out on behalf of the Veterans’ Charities and the Royal Blind Association. The Day Centre has a striking roof design to replicate the wings of a Hawk jet, a subtle nod towards its military connections, whilst the 55-bed care home is a modern building with a sensory garden at its centre.
“Our integrated piping system fulfils the demanding briefs set by today’s architects and specifiers giving installers confidence in the fitting and commissioning process,” said Eleanor Johnson Fittings Market Manager for Pegler Yorkshire. “The heat free, push and press fit technology offers compatible pipes, fittings and valves and is an ideal solution in a variety of projects and continues to grow in popularity across all sectors.”
A shining example of this was when Arc-Tech (Scotland) Ltd, who have worked on flagship projects across Scotland, were commissioned to be the main M & E contractor at the Hawkshead Centre. The contract was carried out in a tough 40-week period on time, and on budget, and this was attributed to the products and the support received from the Pegler Yorkshire.
VSH Tectite push-fit system, by Pegler Yorkshire, was chosen as the preferred solution for this particular project for its credentials and ability to be easily connected. Its heat free technology ensures a clean and speedy installation of the system whilst the complementary valves provided the completed services with greater efficiency and control.
The Tectite system, combined with the entire integrated piping system, ensured a clean installation as the product negates the need for any solder or flux. No hot works permit is required due to its heat free nature and full training from the Pegler Yorkshire team was given to all installers to ensure the products were installed correctly and that the efficiencies of time and labour were realised.
John Gallacher Managing Director Arc-Tech commented; “The quality of the Pegler Yorkshire products is excellent and the team were very responsive when any assistance was required. It supported us in the execution of this flagship project reducing tooling, allowing us to meet the tight timescales and delivering a project that represented the quality synonymous with Arc-Tech and Pegler Yorkshire.”
