Wavin presents modular Q-Bic Plus stormwater solution at London’s Flood Expo 2016
London’s Flood Expo 2016 (October 12th & 13th) is the largest event of its kind to present solutions to the epic flooding problems plaguing the world over. Industry leaders in flood prevention showcase the latest, cost-effective and efficient ways to prevent and manage floods. And Wavin’s innovative, modular storm system – the Q-Bic Plus – breaks all the rules... but for all the right reasons.
So when the rise in heavy flooding makes the news headlines this rainy season and the question “Are we doing enough?” comes up, Wavin’s response is “Not just enough – but much, much more.”
Flood prevention – a number one priority
Winter is just around the corner, bringing with it the inevitable heavy rains that have become an annual event in recent years – not only in the UK, but across Europe. In the UK, the Government has invested heavily in flood protection schemes across the country, which is a start. However, floods take an emotional toll on individual homeowners and small businesses. In many cases, flood damage can be devastating. And the financial cost for restoration is huge – regardless of whether it’s a single family home, an apartment building or a large commercial establishment. That’s why Wavin takes stormwater management very seriously and developed a system that takes flood prevention to the next level.
Q-Bic Plus rewrites the rule book of geocellular stormwater management systems
So, why is Wavin’s Q-Bic Plus the ideal stormwater solution for urban housing developments and commercial infrastucure projects? The answer is simple. “Q-Bic Plus opens up a real opportunity for modular plastic geocellular systems to be adopted as part of the development drainage scheme”, said Martin Lambley Product Manager - Foul, Utilities and Water Management at Wavin UK. “Its open structure allows real, workable access for inspection and maintenance, something which historically has been a barrier to such systems being considered for adoption.”
It’s all about the modularity
Modularisation is the key. It helps with configurability, making the Q-Bic Plus suitable for a wide range of applications – from small domestic developments to the largest commercial applications. The integrated push-fit connectors help speed up the system’s installation by up to 50%, thus reducing the overall cost. After all, time is money. And the lightweight nature of the system adds to the seamless installation
Modularisation has become the buzzword among developers and architects. With the Q-Bic Plus, Wavin has paved the way for a buzzword to become an industry standard.
