High-tech innovation from north-west drainage contractors hebs Flowtech

The range of technologies available from north-west drainage contractors hebs Flowtech continues to expand with a high-tech innovation that’s a first for sewerage contractors in the north of England.

Flowtech can now provide cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) drain and sewer lining technology that until now has not been available from any other drainage contractor based in the north of England and operating in either the private sector or the facilities management industry.

The significant high-tech innovation is the use of cutting-edge ultraviolet LED technology to cure the resin in place, which gives the drain or sewer contractor excellent control over the curing process.

Advantages of UV-cured CIPP lining

There are many advantages of UV-cured CIPP lining for new drains and sewers, or to repair damage in old drainage pipes.

Some examples include:

  • Control of the time and location of curing by the position of the UV LED lights.
  • No need to race against a predetermined rate of curing, or stuck/failed liners.
  • Fast total curing time means faster progress and quicker setup of next section.
  • Rapid overall installation and ability to use multiple patches quickly.
  • Low total energy consumption – and no need for large generators on-site.
  • Small, compact packer and UV light equipment compared to other methods.
  • Compact size enables access to confined areas where standard lining rigs cannot reach.

It’s a list that goes on and on, but the main points are that UV-cured CIPP technology is faster, more directly controllable and can be used in more confined and compact locations.

Significantly for companies with an environmental commitment, it also uses less energy and causes less disruption to the local landscape due to bringing bulky generators and other equipment on-site.

This all adds up to a quick, convenient and eco-conscious process that hebs Flowtech are making available for the first time from an FM/private sector drainage contractor based in the north-west.

Pure Gym Fareham opens with hebs Group’s help

The newly opened Pure Gym Fareham is the 208th location for the budget fitness gym chain in under a decade, and hebs Group were delighted to go to work preparing the premises for the grand opening on time, on budget and to the client’s expectations.

It’s not the first time hebs Group have been chosen by Pure Gym to provide leisure fitout services for new gyms in the chain – in fact we were also principal contractors on the 200th Pure Gym outlet at Brighton.

For the Fareham project, we were given an eight-week deadline to have the building completed and handed over, on a budget of £580,000 – and that’s even before the fitness and workout equipment was installed – so naturally the hebs team rose to the challenge.

Parameters were agreed for the project as a whole, and hebs Group are proud to have delivered the finished premises on budget and within parameters, and to the very high standard of finish expected of a brand new and custom-built Pure Gym venue.

We worked diligently to bring the property to Practical Completion on time, before it was handed over to Pure Gym courtesy of project manager Jon Graley and their new openings manager Dan Blackhall, ready for them to take over ahead of launch day.

By bringing the project in on schedule, hebs Group were able to give the Pure Gym Fareham team the time they needed to carry out their own finishing touches, such as installing the gym equipment and preparing the premises for the official public opening.

Launch day was on Tuesday September 18th, adding the 208th state-of-the-art facilities to the group’s portfolio, less than ten years after they opened their first-ever gym back in 2009, and continuing their ambition to provide friendly and supportive fitness centres in convenient locations nationwide.

Pure Gym Fareham shared their own images of the ambitious fitness centre fitout throughout the process, with sneak previews of the banks of overhead lighting, the newly installed changing rooms and the “serious” air conditioning vents at the rear – helping to add to the excitement ahead of the official launch.

The newly finished facility is a great addition to the area, offering no-contract affordable gym membership in Fareham along with employment opportunities for personal trainers who live nearby – a truly win-win result from a project that was meticulously planned and delivered to the highest of hebs Group’s standards.

A warm welcome to hebs Flowtech

But Flowtech allows us to go further, with a dedicated sewer and drainage team that can carry out surveys, cleaning and repair work on every aspect of your premises from your roofs and gutters, to your drains and sewers.


Cutting-edge technology

The ‘tech’ part of the Flowtech name is a hint at some of the cutting-edge technology we use when carrying out surveys and maintenance work at high altitude, in confined spaces, and in any other challenging locations on your premises.
