Doncaster Racecourse gets £32m refurbishment

Doncaster Racecourse in South Yorkshire has completed the installation of a syphonic drainage system on the new grandstand and conference centre as part of the £32 million refurbishment.

The old grandstand, built in 1969, has been replaced by a five-tier structure which includes private hospitality suites, a wide range of catering outlets, bars and luxury dining areas with panoramic views.

The new grandstand and conference centre with a combined roof area of approximately 7500m2 required a flexible drainage system which could remove rainwater efficiently from the roof, without compromising the appeal of the building.

Fullflow installed a syphonic drainage system which is designed for a maximum rainfall intensity of 270mm/hr and required only 11 downpipes for both grandstand and conference centre.
