Durapipe chosen for luxury care home


When asked to develop hot and cold water pipework for a new luxury care home in Woking, mechanical engineers J&B Hopkins had no reservations about using Durapipe HTA.

J&B Hopkins was tasked with the job by Hamberley Developments, a developer of luxury care homes and retirement living projects, for its Streets Heath home.

Neil Harding from J&B Hopkins said: “We always look to reduce the amount of copper we install on projects to minimise the risks associated with theft and so Durapipe HTA was the ideal alternative to copper for this project.

“We have used Durapipe systems for more than 12 years and have always been impressed. HTA was no different on Streets Heath, it was quick and simple to install, saving us time during the installation.”

Durapipe HTA is a C-PVC pipework system specially designed for domestic hot and cold water services. The product’s lightweight nature, combined with its quick and easy solvent weld jointing technique, offers significant installed cost savings, compared with copper alternatives. HTA’s limescale and corrosion resistant properties also ensure it maintains its performance over the lifetime of the system with minimal maintenance requirements.

Due for completion in August 2017, Streets Heath is a luxury new two-storey retirement complex comprising 60 bedrooms, alongside a variety of communal living, dining and laundry areas.
