BBC Broadcasting House

Interior Building Drainage

The British Broadcasting Corporation is a British public service broadcaster. Its headquarters are at Broadcasting House in London. It is the world’s oldest national broadcasting organisation, and employs over 21,000 people in total.

Component Developments was approached to design, manufacture and supply stainless steel drainage channels suitable for vinyl sheet flooring for the kitchen area.  The systems designed included a built in fall to Component Development’s type 5200 gully. The 5200 gully has a flow rate of 3 L/s and is very popular for use in commercial kitchens.

The gully assembly included a removable waste basket, odour trap, rodding port and 110mm diameter vertical outlet spigot. The removable waste basket helps prevent blockages in the system, and allows for quick and easy removal and maintenance.

Both drainage channels were topped with Component Developments anti-slip grating, which has a 23 x 23mm open mesh and a 30 x 2mm load bar. The open mesh allows food and other debris to fall into the channel system, and be caught by the waste basket.

The final systems supplied were sustainable and durable drainage channels which met all hydraulic and hygienic requirements.
