Case Study

Alumasc Water Management Solutions

Tottenham Hotspur's new state of the art stadium

AWMS played an integral part in Tottenham Hotspur’s new state of the art £1 billion stadium.
This was an exciting project for the AWMS team that featured a comprehensive “Rain to Drain” offer with the specification of various brands. Gatic special Stainless Steel CastSlot and PaveSlot drainage channels were installed around the stadium to provide discreet high capacity linear drainage, as well as the installation of Gatic engineered Access Covers and Assist Lift Covers. In addition Harmer SML Below Ground cast iron drainage systems were installed in combination with Wade cast iron floor gullies.
