Project Highlight:

Swiftdrain’s 6-Inch Wide Heavy Duty Trench Drain System for Gold Coast Crane

Swiftdrain recently had the privilege of collaborating on a high-profile project for Gold Coast Crane, a premier crane rental agency in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This project underscored Swiftdrain’s commitment to excellence and innovation in providing top-tier drainage solutions tailored to the unique needs of our clients.

Project Overview

Gold Coast Crane required a robust drainage system to manage the substantial runoff generated at their busy facility. Initially, the architectural plans, crafted by JF Smith Design and Build, specified a 5-inch neutral trench drain. However, after a thorough consultation, Swiftdrain recommended upgrading to a 6-inch wide heavy duty pre-sloped trench drain system to better address the drainage challenges presented by the site.

MSB Development expertly handled the installation, ensuring seamless integration and optimal performance.
Why Choose a 6-Inch Wide HDPE Trench Drain?

1. Increased Flow Capacity: The wider 6-inch trench drain offers a significant boost in flow capacity compared to a 5-inch system. This enhancement is crucial for efficiently managing the heavy runoff at Gold Coast Crane, preventing potential flooding and water pooling.

2. Durability and Strength: Made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), these trench drains are built to withstand heavy loads and harsh environmental conditions. Their resilience ensures long-term performance, reducing maintenance needs and costs.

3. Ease of Installation: The pre-sloped design of Swiftdrain’s trench drains simplifies the installation process. This design ensures proper water flow and drainage without the need for extensive site modifications, saving both time and money.

4. Cost-Effective Solution: Despite the upgrade from a 5-inch to a 6-inch system, the overall cost-efficiency remains favorable. The enhanced performance and reduced maintenance requirements translate to long-term savings for Gold Coast Crane.

Project Execution

The installation at Gold Coast Crane involved four trench drain runs, totaling 200 linear feet.

The Swiftdrain team worked closely with MSB Development to ensure precise installation, adhering to the highest standards of quality and safety. The result is a drainage system that effectively handles the high volume of runoff, maintaining a dry and safe environment for the crane operations.

Solving Drainage Issues
The strategic implementation of the 6-inch wide trench drains resolved several key drainage issues at the

Gold Coast Crane facility:

* Enhanced Water Management: The increased capacity of the 6-inch drains efficiently directs water away from critical areas, preventing
damage and operational disruptions.

* Reduced Flood Risk: By effectively channeling large volumes of water, the risk of flooding and related hazards is significantly minimized.

* Improved Site Safety: Proper drainage reduces water accumulation, decreasing the risk of slips, trips, and falls, thereby enhancing overall site safety.
