A trade association has been formed to represent the interests of the precast concrete drainage industry.
The new British Precast Drainage Association (BPDA) has been formed by amalgamating the Concrete Pipeline Systems Association (CPSA) and the Box Culvert Association (BCA) as one of the specialist groups within the British Precast Concrete Federation.
Stuart Crisp, Business Development Director of the BPDA is clear about the benefits: “While the two product groups have distinct characteristics, there is much common ground in the use of concrete products in drainage applications. Bringing the two associations together allows us to combine our resources more efficiently to promote the benefits of precast concrete drainage solutions.”
“The concrete industry has some compelling product benefits to shout about,” Crisp continues. “Our mission is to provide measured and accurate information and to counteract situations where inadequate and misleading opinions prevail.”
A distinctive new logo marks the launch of the Association and although rebranding and replacing the wealth of technical data sheets and guidance notes will be a gradual process, the new website is now live.
