Evac Turns Residential

Monday, 16 May 2016 09:12

 

EVDS Ltd have recently installed a vacuum drainage system into 16 residential flats in Summertown Oxford.

 

Previously two storeys of office space stood above a Marks & Spencer store when a developer purchased the premises to convert into apartments. With there being an issue with taking the drainage down into the supermarket below the design consultant Elementa was able to recognise the benefits of a flexible drainage system that Evac can offer. This enabled all of the new living accommodation to be drained without having any effect on the retail space below; small bore pipes run at high level in the communal areas taking the sewage from each flat.

 

Working with Keyshel Interiors, the Evac system is now fitted to each unit draining all of the household waste from the bathroom & kitchen areas.

 

European Vacuum Drainage Systems Young Engineer Training Program

Monday, 16 May 2016 08:59

 

EVDS welcomed ten members of the Arup young engineer’s network to our training facility at our Kent offices for our inaugural young engineers training program.

On the day we were joined by the following delegates who are a mixture of graduates and apprentices who all aspire to progress as public health engineers.

 

  • Anna Cesenni
  • Bartlomiej Gumula
  • Kate Anderson
  • Emily Spangler
  • Yasmin Chamadia
  • Hannan Stephenson
  • Marius Wlodarczyk
  • Jack Dash
  • Finley Thomas-Milne
  • Neil Cologne

 

We were able to discuss the benefits and uses of vacuum drainage whilst being able to demonstrate the equipment in our working showroom.

As the feedback we received from the young engineers was very positive, EVDS will plan to make this program an annual event as Arup have a regular intake of young talent.

 

The Hospital Club

Thursday, 11 December 2014 09:19

 

This building was originally constructed in 1749 as a maternity hospital. It stayed as a medical facility witnessing such pioneering events such as the creation of the first artificial kidney and the first tests in dialysis until it finally closed its doors to the medical profession in 1992.

 

The building now boarded up was re-discovered by Paul Allen, co founder of Microsoft & Dave Stewart formerly of the rock duo the Eurythmics. Their plan was to produce a venue that would actively encourage its members to create, connect and collaborate. Their creation, the aptly named Hospital Club re-opened its doors in 2004.

 

In 2014, the club decided to convert the 3rd floor in 15 varied sized hotel rooms. This would range from small pod style rooms to two suites with balconies. However, the designers faced a problem in the fact that the club generated lots of noise from the lower floors from the clubs, restaurants and music studios below. However, by using vacuum drainage technology, the waste was lifted to high level and directed towards the existing building riser that had been already sound proofed.

 

The Hospital Club rooms will be available from January 2015.
