Naylor- contributors to the success of the 2012 games
So we didn’t grab the headlines of Jessica Ennis and Mo Farah but in our own way we contributed to the success of the 2012 Olympics- and now we’re allowed to talk about it, having secured a license which permits us to talk about our involvement.
Naylor was a key supplier of pipes providing services and infrastructure across the Stratford site including to access roadways, the Athletes’ village and to venues such as the basketball arena:
- Clay pipes for sewerage infrastructure
- Plastic pipes for ducting- street lighting, cabling, CCTV etc
- Plastic pipes for surface water drainage
We supplied a number of different contractor customers with product including Volker Fitzpatrick, BAM-Nuttall and Delta Civil Engineering.
Our Plastic pipe ranges primarily comprise corrugated single and twin wall coils and pipes manufactured from HDPE; we scored a brownie point in terms of sustainability as we use recycled materials wherever possible to minimise our carbon footprint.
Most noteworthy in terms of the Olympic construction programme was the supply of Denlok- Naylor’s DN150-700 Clay jacking pipe system which allows the installation of pipelines through trenchless methods. Denlok pipelines serve as carrier drains for surface water, cable ducts and foul sewerage pipelines. The fact that Denlok can be installed without needing to dig a trench meant that pipeline installation could continue below the ground with minimal disruption to the Olympic construction programme: construction work, deliveries and vehicle movements could continue unimpeded.
Maybe someone out there could do with some materials for use on the Rio 2016 build programme?
