An example of a SUDS installation.

Glowing report for new suds service from SBS

Published:  02 August, 2013

Sustainable Building Solutions (SBS), part of the Travis Perkins Group, has partnered with Geo Environmental Sciences Limited (GESL) to offer a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) design and installation service which is already garnering positive reviews.

Monmouthshire Development approached SBS after struggling to acquire a competitive quote for work on a development of nine houses in Wales. A clear and cost-effective quote from GESL, backed by the product support of SBS and Travis Perkins, meant that a plan was in place very quickly.

Brian James of Monmouthshire Developments, said: “GESL completed a detailed SUDS assessment, a professional scheme design, full supporting calculations and drawings, in just five days. Backed by support from SBS, we received a first class service that made it simple to pull together the design and implementation of this renewable solution.”

Paul Joyner, director of sustainability at Travis Perkins plc, added: “By partnering with GESL we can now offer access to a comprehensive SUDS design service. This is a fantastic addition to our portfolio; we’re committed to continually improving the integrated solutions we provide for customers - not just products, but also training, services, technical advice and sustainable consultancy.”
