As hydraulic designer of piping systems in our waterworks, we deal with following definitions on a regular basis:
. Pipe material and structure: homogen vs. composite, single wall vs. double wall
. Pipe mechanical properties against the external and internal loading including stiffness and service/bursting pressure, and working temperature during lifetime of project
. Pipe safety and health criteria
. Pipe fittings, installation and handling
There are baseline standards in the BC Building Code (2018), and we select the piping systems based on the conditions and needs in any project. With 25 years of experience in waterworks, stormwater, drainage, sanitary, and having understanding about pipes technologies , we do this process accurately.
