The requirement of a reliable and effective internal drainage system in today’s developed world is expected and taken for granted.
The general perception of drainage systems is to remove human waste from a building with the least disruption and impact on our daily lives as possible. This perception is not completely wrong; however, the other main objective of a drainage system is to prevent foul odour ingress into the built environment and thus prevent the possibility of bacterial infection occurring.
The design of modern building drainage and ventilation systems has been developing since the 19th century to improve both the efficiency of the drainage systems and mitigate the escape of foul air into habitable areas.

"Cosgrove & Drew were employed by CHt to install the cast iron drainage system at the 55,000m2 Gwent Critical Care Hospital in Cwmbran, South Wales. Initially, they were an unknown quantity to CHt, but following some good tender returns, some positive and encouraging meetings and positive feedback from some of their references, we decided to give them an opportunity on the project.
Since starting the project, Cosgrove & Drew have performed much better than expected and exceeded our expectations. They have been able to keep up with our very challenging programme, interfaced well with other trades, monitored and maintained a high level of quality and successfully tested and handed over a large proportion of their installation in line with the programme.
As a result of their good performance on the drainage, we have subsequently awarded them the mechanical installation for the education block (a 7000m2 part of the project), which is testament to performance on the project. We would highly recommend Cosgrove & Drew and wish them all the best for the future."
