£½ Million of Works Completed

Plastica have recently concluded 2 major installation for fume cupboard and associated equipment ventilation systems, for up-to-the-minute laboratory complexes.
One appointment was made due to the failure to complete by the original plastic ductwork contactor, Plastica were called in to conclude the PVC/ GRP ductwork installation for a new Integrated Cancer Research centre.
The entire project was at an advanced stage, making access to the work area challenging.
Incorporated within the scope of works included some 70-fume cupboard connection, numerous grille connections, and extensive riser duct installations.
Separately, a contract was secured for the design, manufacture, and installation of extensive laboratory fume cupboard extraction systems for a new research facility within the Oxfordshire area.
The exhaust systems constructed in Upvc included extraction systems from 60 Fume Cupboards, in addition to ceiling and Low-level grilles connections.
The project also required 16 roof mounted stacks, 6 metre tall, multi-leaf volume control, and automated bleed dampers.

Plastica have successfully completed another Underground Plastic Ductwork project.

Plastica were commissioned by a leading UK design and build contractor to undertake the design, construction and installation of a Ductwork system at a state-of-the-art new build, multi-functional leisure complex which included a swimming pool.

Constructed in corrosion resistant Upvc and manufactured to an enhanced BESA154 specification, the system installed offers the perfect solution to meet the client’s needs. Over 150 meters of ductwork was installed, with sizes ranging from 1250 to 750 diameters, which now successfully forms part of the building’s air distribution engineering system.

The image shows the ductwork laid in position prior to back filling.
