Dublin’s stunning new architectural triumph, the Aviva Stadium, was designed to provide first-class facilities for spectators, players, media and backroom staff. But behind this beautiful poly-carbonate façade, the nuts and bolts of the stadium needed to comply with some strict ground rules. The contractor Mercury Engineering had to ensure the venue was constructed as sustainably as possible, working towards the BS8901 certification of sustainable management for events and event venues and this is where Geberit stepped in.
Geberit played a key role in helping the venue achieve this level of sustainability by supplying its HDPE pipes throughout the stadium. Not only is this material completely recyclable, it also provides a total solution for all types of drainage, including soil, waste and rainwater.
Besides the sheer versatility of the piping system, Geberit HDPE was chosen because of the ease of installation. The contractor could ensure that all joints had been properly fused due to the yellow indicator on the electrofusion coupling, which could be touched in areas hidden from view - a major advantage for installing piping in more restricted areas of the Stadium.
Geberit also provided a full technical back-up service and on-site training for joint coupling to the installation team, ensuring complete peace of mind throughout the project
