Building services specialist merchant Brymec has helped to supply product and technical expertise on the construction of the landmark Bailey Point development, Bournemouth University’s new £31 million student accommodation project.
The modern student accommodation, located at the heart of the university’s Lansdowne Campus, will home 550 students in ensuite bedroom apartments and studio flats, all served by full modern kitchen and communal areas.
Brymec supplied copper press and valve systems, along with technical guidance, to equip the plant room of the block, which serves all 550 bedrooms and communal areas, with a robust, high-performance water supply system.
The Brymec Copper Press system of pipe fittings was selected to provide the on-site contractors with the ability to perform multiple aspects of the plant room install at the same time. The two-point press system on each fitting removes the need for more time-intensive jointing methods to be used.
In addition, Brymec Cast Iron Valves were used throughout the system installed by the William Coates team, while WRAS approved, full bore Brymec Lever Ball Valves were fitted to help the building facilities management team maintain and control the finished water supply system.
Lyndon Fielder, Account Manager at Brymec, said: “Bailey Point is Bournemouth University’s flagship student development, with its modern design, layout and facilities providing the new residents with the most communal space available on campus, including a roof terrace and free gym.”
