World Health Organization Manila Headquarters, now with QuickStream Siphonic Roof Drainage System

The Regional Headquarters for the Western Pacific, located in Manila, Philippines, represents World Health Organization in the Asia Pacific. The office acts as the health conscience of the Asia Pacific Region now with QuickStream Siphonic Roof Drainage System

The Regional Headquarters for the Western Pacific, located in Manila, Philippines, represents World Health Organization in the Asia Pacific. The office acts as the health conscience of the Asia Pacific Region.

In 2009, the original office building was extensively damaged by the historic strong typhoon Ketsana (known as “Ondoy” in the Philippines).   A plan was made to rehabilitate, renovate and improve the building and its facilities which involved the installation of a new roof drainage system that can withstand intense rainfall of over 400mm in 24 hours (Typhoon Ketsana, at its peak, was documented to have released 455mm of rainfall in 24 hours!).

Wavin QuickStream Siphonic System was the only choice by the lead designer and consultant, Meinhardt Philippines, Inc. for the new roof drainage requirements for this renovation project which was done in 2016.  The design had a roof area of 2,400 square meters, and mandated a flow rate of 168 liters per second capacity.   The roof drainage was designed with the help of the Wavin QuickStream Siphonic Software to ensure optimum performance for the whole system.

Taking the lead in this project is Wavin’s Philippine partner for QS Siphonic System:  Unitec Pipe Manufacturing Corporation.
