Pipekit, an independent distributor of specialist pipework systems and drainage solutions, supplied a range of pipework and fittings to meet the needs of the new heating and hot and cold-water systems installed into the new Allscott Meads Primary School, which has been constructed as part of the award winning Allscott Meads Development project.

The site, which was originally home to the British Sugar’s sugar beet factory before closing in 2007, has been redeveloped by SJ Roberts Homes to breathe new life into the rural village of Allscott. The Allscott Meads development will have a total of 470 homes on completion, as well as a primary school, sports and social club, nature trail and community orchard, as the visionary homebuilder puts community at the heart of homebuilding.

During the design and build of Allscott Meads Primary School, which was completed in September 2023, SJ Roberts Construction Ltd, sister company to SJ Roberts Homes, selected Pipekit because of the distributor’s locality and readily available stock levels, which was available for local collection and delivery, as well as offering high quality training for all new products. The team at Pipekit worked alongside SJ Roberts Construction to select the appropriate products for the job in hand, which saw a range of leading brands selected from Geberit Copper Mapress, Flamco Pipe Clips and Air Admittance Valves and Albion Valves to fit out, contain and secure the constant and variable heating circuits and hot and cold-water services throughout the building. The brands were selected to offer high quality fittings at a competitive price.

Commenting on the project, Matthew Roberts from SJ Roberts said: “We have worked with Pipekit before and were impressed with the smooth ordering process, quick delivery times and overall high-quality technical support and customer service. Working on this project, time management was particularly crucial as we worked to open the school on time for the new autumn term, and Pipekit’s locality and good stock levels of leading brands was key to meeting those deadlines”.

Adding to this, Jamie McQueen, Sales Director at Pipekit said: “We were really pleased to supply SJ Roberts and support an award-winning project that has been instrumental in creating a new community and strengthening the local infrastructure. It’s always rewarding to work with existing customers and be able to offer our expertise and service as part of an overall design and build project such as the Allscott Meads Development”.

SJ Roberts Homes and the Allscott Meads Development was recently ‘Highly Commended’ in the ‘Best Regeneration Initiative’ category at the national Housebuilder Awards and was named ‘Placemaking Project of the Year’ at the Insider Midlands Residential Property Awards in 2023.
