RAINBOX® attenuation system prepares the ground for high tech car supermarket

The RAINBOX® Cube attenuation system from water management specialists JDP has prepared the ground for a brand new state-of-the-art high tech car supermarket in Dundee. The new CarStore in Dundee follows the successful concept of the Glasgow store, and will be fitted out with cutting-edge technical innovations aimed at enhancing the consumer’s car buying experience.

JDP was asked to design and supply an effective stormwater drainage management solution to protect the impressive new facility, in conjunction with Graf UK who carried out the installation, on behalf of main contractors CM Steel Buildings.

The JDP technical team designed a system incorporating their RAINBOX® Attenuation Solutions. RAINBOX® Cube modular crates were selected for the project, being load bearing, and suited for the requirements of heavy traffic applications or difficult site conditions.

A total of 671.7m3 RAINBOX® Cube crates were supplied and delivered for quick and easy assembly on site.

The RAINBOX®Cube system allows two crate modules to be stacked one inside the other, providing significant savings on transport costs and CO2 emissions.

The system is designed to have a high rate of infiltration and barrier free inspection across the whole area allowing the entire system to be monitored. The crates are lightweight, and offer real benefits in terms of reduced time on site, speed of installation and in reducing transport costs, material costs and reduced maintenance costs when compared with traditional alternatives such as conventional drainage channels.
