We are delighted here at ACO. StormBrixx has once again been shortlisted for an award – this time for the highly prestigious Environment and Energy Awards in the category for Innovative Water Product/Service. The winner will be announced at a ceremony on 16th April but whatever the outcome, the fact that StormBrixx has been shortlisted again affirms the innovative solution this system offers in surface water management, especially in a year where the awards organiser states there has been a high quality of entries and judging has been tough.
The StormBrixx surface water infiltration and storage system was designed to address specific industry issues and has been integrated as part of a sustainable urban drainage scheme (SuDS) in all construction environments. The system is packed full of features based on detailed understanding of the historical problems the construction industry were battling with. It has full 3D access for inspection and maintenance, which is a requirement for primary adoption by Local Authorities. A stackable design reduces storage and transportation costs and, importantly, the carbon footprint of using the system. Cell brickbonding and crossbonding offer unrivalled strength and stability while maintaining easy installation and flexibility to minimise excavation requirements.
StormBrixx is already an award-winning product with the British Construction Industry (BCI) Awards for Product Design Innovation. The industry recognition of its clever design and successful application in numerous projects confirm it is the very special product we were aiming for. Its success has proven that it is something that brings value engineering, delivers real benefit and solves many challenging issues for successful, sustainable surface water management today and for the future.
