Organisation Description

We represent the industry working on improving the business environment for the £2bn precast concrete products industry in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

CPD Courses and Workshops Available

  • Choosing The Right Pipeline System ? Now And For The Future

    Seminar | British Precast Drainage Association

    British Precast Drainage Association

    Seminar highlights current waste water industry challenges and shows how concrete pipeline system characteristics can help address these issues. Areas covered include installed capital costs, maintenance and operational costs, installation, integrity and durability, design flexibility, sustainability, quality and innovation.

  • 20 Reasons Why Concrete Pipeline Systems Are The Best Option Now And For The Future

    Literature | British Precast Drainage Association

    British Precast Drainage Association

    This document complements the seminar and highlights current waste water industry challenges and how concrete pipeline system characteristics can help address these issues.

  • Carbon Footprinting Demystified

    Seminar | British Precast Drainage Association

    British Precast Drainage Association

    Do we understand what a carbon footprint actually is?? Confusion is widespread and ?carbon accounting? can still be considered to be in its infancy.? Seminar explains how a credible, consistent and transparent methodology is essential if meaningful comparisons are to be made between alternative designs and materials.? Covers the fundamentals of carbon accounting, identifies information sources and indicates limitations to the reliability of some data.

  • Surface Water Management Using Proprietary Precast Concrete Suds Systems

    Seminar | British Precast Drainage Association

    British Precast Drainage Association

    This seminar provides an understanding of the legal framework driving changes in the design and construction of surface water management systems in the UK and the basic principles associated with sustainable drainage systems (suds) and their ownership, operation and maintenance. In this context, proprietary precast concrete suds components and systems will be identified and their specific uses examined.

  • Optimising Pipeline Bedding Design To Achieve Installed Cost & Carbon Efficiencies

    Seminar | British Precast Drainage Association

    British Precast Drainage Association

    This seminar demonstrates that substantial savings in pipeline installation costs and embodied carbon can be achieved through the effective use of structural design and the resulting selection of appropriate pipeline embedment detail relevant to the pipe material and strength.
