Project: OCADO Warehouse Development, Tamworth, Staffs

Iron technology leader Saint-Gobain PAM UK, part of leading international materials company Saint-Gobain, has secured a major contract to supply its Ensign cast iron above ground drainage system for the construction of a warehouse in Tamworth, Staffordshire.

Ocado, the online grocery shop, is building the major new distribution centre for Tamworth with main contractor Bowmer & Kirkland. It will enable Ocado to expand across central and northern England and generate approximately 2,000 jobs.

Ensign cast iron drainage products will be installed for the rainwater stacks, having been specified for their performance over and above that of the original PVC specification. In addition, Ensign retains the traditional qualities of cast iron, with its strength, rigidity and guaranteed long life.

The Ensign system is being supplied by Drain Center of Leeds and installed by C Beverley.


The warehouse is set to be finished by the end of 2012.
