Pipe boxing to flagship ‘gateway’ tower blocks
Versatile pipe boxing has played an important part in the major refurbishment of two high-profile residential tower blocks in the West Midlands.
Essential renovation work to apartment interiors included remodeling bathrooms and kitchens and the rewiring of electrics to bring the flats up to Decent Homes Standards, the government’s technical standard for public housing.
Encasement supplied £20,000 worth of pipe boxing including internal corners and stop ends. The Versa 5 pipe casing provides an attractive way of concealing and protecting obtrusive pipework for the new ventilation systems installed throughout each apartment.
Wall mounted energy-efficient units provide whole-home ventilation and remove condensation. They introduce an almost imperceptible air supply through the living space, making it a fresh, healthy and condensation-free environment.
Both nine-storey tower blocks are recognised as high-profile ‘gateway’ buildings because they are on either side of a major approach road into West Bromwich town centre and are visible from the M5.
Versatile n-case pipe boxing has been used in a wide range of private and public sector projects, including new housing developments and other large-scale social housing refurbishments.
