Following a five-year, 750m investment programme, the new Gateway New Street railway station in Birmingham opened in September 2015.

Gateway New Street is now a world-class transport centre, with a concourse three and a half times larger than before, and a striking atrium roof the height of 8 double decker buses. 6000 tones of concrete were removed from the original station, built in 1965, to create the space.

Stainless steel was used for many parts of the building including the facade, cladding as well as throughout the building, where BLÜCHER supplied its EuroPipe drainage pipework system.

The project required 3090 metres of BLÜCHER's hygienic stainless steel pipe EuroPipe – a length that is 10 times the height of the Shard, the tallest building in London.

EuroPipe was chosen for Gateway New Street due to stainless steel's non-toxic, corrosion resistant, hygienic and the fire resistant properties. It can also be recycled indefinitely without any loss of its properties. This, along with the environmental benefits in its production, make it a popular choice for designers who are conscious of the carbon footprint of their projects.

BLÜCHER® EuroPipe is one third of the weight of a traditional cast iron drainage system and can typically offer 40% labour savings as well as superior whole life costs compared to alternative drainage materials.
