Uponor Quick & Easy has recently been recognised as the thinking man's solution to flexible plumbing, by being installed at Oxford University's Balliol College. The College has recently added to its accommodation facilities with the construction of the Jowett Walk Building (JWD), which was designed by London-based architects MacCormac Jamieson Prichard, and includes a total of nine towers that will house bedrooms, seminar/social rooms and a host of other amenities.


The first stage of this prestigious project was the construction of three towers housing sixty-five bedrooms, with Uponor Ltd Quick & Easy pipes used to distribute heating to radiators throughout - meaning that thousands of metres of the cross-linked polyethylene pipe has been used during development. Uponor Quick & Easy PEX pipe was chosen for its flexible, light and easy-to-handle properties. The fact that installers did not have to use heat guns, naked flames or tricky-to-fit rubber seals meant that the time needed to complete the job was significantly reduced.

The biological treatment plant is worth its price

The Murto family, from Savonlinna, Finland, live in a sturdy log cabin built in 1845. The waste water system of the house had last been overhauled in the 1970s and the old concrete wells and absorption field had reached the end of their lifecycle. The choice was between renovating the old wells and getting an Uponor biological treatment plant, and the decision was not difficult to make.

Renovation of the district heating piping system of six housing companies

Six housing companies located in the Hurttivuori district in Turku have a joint heating plant – Nokikana Oy. The terraced houses, which were built between 1975 and 1977, contain a total of 104 flats. Heating and water are supplied to all flats by a joint heating plant. Renovating the piping system became a necessity due to leaks. The plant's insulated elements were renovated in such a way that all residents were able to live in their homes for the entire duration of the renovation.
