Storm Drain Construction
Standing water and uncontrolled runoff can wreak havoc on your property. When construction gets underway for your building, you need a reliable storm drain that is simultaneously up to code and a steady match for your worksite’s climate. If you live in a particularly rainy area, having a proper stormwater collection and drainage system is imperative to secure your foundations and underground facilities.
Precast Storm Drain Pieces
Many of the strongest storm drainage systems are constructed using precast pieces stitched together on-site. Because these pieces are usually made in a plant, their consistency and high quality are guaranteed. The sealants and protective agents utilized in concrete mixes from plants have time to set correctly and don’t lose any of their benefits due to inclement weather or accidents at a job site.
Precast concrete pieces are also highly durable, which makes them ideal for burial and under constant exposure to water. If you anticipate that your storm drain will encounter other chemicals, such as pesticides, poisons, or other strong corrosive agents, the concrete used in these pieces can be mixed with other chemicals that can withstand more severe chemical exposure.
