Drain Center supplies high-profile development in Aberdeen

Published:  16 December, 2009

ABERDEEN: Drain Center, part of the Wolseley group, has been chosen to supply above and below ground drainage products to a high profile development in Aberdeen.

The distributor of specialist drainage solutions has supplied a wide range of products to Kepplestone – Stewart Milne Homes’ £20m development of premium properties. Products include the Ensign cast iron soil system, which consists of lightweight cast-iron socketless pipes and fittings, Marley PVC soil and waste systems and Alutec rainwater drain pipes – as well as Marley Equator, which is manufactured from cross-linked polyethylene, for the hot and cold water services.

In addition, Drain Center supplied Marley Quantum sewer system which incorporates a twin wall pipe and offers consistent high quality to groundworks contractor WM Donald Ltd.

Wallace McKillop, Drain Center business development manager, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen to supply this award-winning, prestigious development. Drain Center has the required technical expertise and focus on delivering excellent customer service, with the backing of Wolseley’s efficient and established supply chain which is committed to delivering on time and in full.”

Situated on the site of the former Robert Gordon University, Kepplestone comprises 16 spacious townhouses and 52 stylish apartments, surrounded by outdoor space and landscaped gardens. With its close proximity to the city centre and local amenities, the development has proved hugely popular since its launch, and only a few of its apartments and townhouses now remain available.
