Polypipe puts Permavoid competition winner in the driving seat


Published by Construction1 for Polypipe in Housing and also in Environment

After receiving hundreds of entries for its highly popular Permavoid competition, Polypipe is pleased to announce that Daniel Kent of MLM Consulting Engineers has been named winner of its Silverstone driving experience.


Held to promote its Permavoid system, the company offered the chance for one lucky winner and a companion to take to the legendary circuit in a high-performance single seat race car, following in the footsteps of British racing royalty.


Daniel said: “I’m thrilled that I was chosen to take part in the track day, I’ve always been a big fan of motorsport and now I have the chance to be in the driving seat rather than just spectating. I didn’t think for a minute that I’d win, but it seems like luck was on my side and I can’t wait to get behind the wheel.”


Sean Robinson, Permavoid Project Manager at Polypipe, said: “Everyone here at Polypipe would like to congratulate Daniel on winning the competition. While Permavoid excels in surface water management, we hope that the conditions at Silverstone are more favourable for his track day!”


Light, manoeuvrable and precisely engineered, Permavoid is a close match for the car that Daniel will be driving.


Designed for shallow surface water management applications, the Permavoid System comprises of high strength modular cells which take the place of a traditional aggregate sub-base.


Permavoid systems capture water at source, removing silt and breaking down hydrocarbrons as part of a wider water management and treatment solution, and can work alongside other Polypipe products to form a bespoke solution for any project, offering improved reliability and storage volumes.
