By Chris Britcher

A contractor from the county is riding high after working to help complete the UK's tallest residential complex.

Polypipe Terrain, in Aylesford, is supplying ventilation, drainage, soil and waste systems to the £385million Deansgate Square development in Manchester city centre.

The firm specialises in manufacturing waste and water management systems.

Site was formerly known as Owen Street Towers (4757396)

The 2.7-acre site will comprise 1,508 luxury apartments across four high-rise blocks, including the 200m, 65-storey South Tower – the UK’s tallest residential building, surpassing the 50-storey St George Wharf Tower in London, which stands at 181m.

The complex, designed by award-winning architect Simpson, Haugh and Partners, will include a 20m indoor swimming pool, performance studios, a three-storey underground car park and indoor tennis court.

Jonathan Greenwood, technical sales manager at Polypipe Terrrain, said: “The height of the development posed a unique challenge for the designers. The drainage stacks throughout the building had to manage huge amounts of pressure so a robust solution was required."
