GPJ Consulting Engineers were asked by one of our long term Clients to propose a method of replacing the existing troublesome symphonic roof outlets with a new item. On the face of it, this appeared to be a simple challenge, however the Client could not allow the rooms and ceilings below the outlets to be disrupted. This prevented a traditional approach to renewing the drainage system.
GPJ Consulting Engineers carried out an accurate site survey and designed a new stainless steel roof drain unit that could be replaced from above maintaining system integrity, whilst minimising disruption to the office workers below.
GPJ Consulting Engineers worked closely with a local specialist contractor to oversee the fabrication of a prototype. This was successfully installed on site with the scheme being rolled out across the building.
