Regional Issues

Rapid urbanisation and population growth across the Middle East has put significant stress on the region’s infrastructure and resources. Additionally, the shift in climatic conditions and the increased frequency and intervals of rainfall often causes a problem of either too much water or too little water.

With an increasing requirement for a more engineered and considered approach to the management of water in the built environment, solutions to address these challenges are in increasingly high demand. 


At Polypipe, we understand these challenges and have developed a range of innovative products and robust water management solutions, relative to the needs of today’s construction industry. As a regional expert, we not only understand the elements driving increased water consumption but also the need to capture, control and re-use it.


We recognise that different areas and cities have varying capabilities and requirements and are well-versed in regional legislation and compliance such as Green Building Codes, GSAS, EGBC, Estidama and LEED. We liaise with all levels of government over the latest technologies and have good working relationships with local Water Councils, all of which positions us to offer the highest standards of service to Middle Eastern customers.

Our solutions and expertise can help with:

  • Sustainable urban Drainage Systems

    Our Sustainable urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) can provide an effective controlled detention, attenuation, infiltration or soakaway system as part of a resilient city strategy. 

  • Source Control

    Our pioneering Polystorm and Permavoid systems can help manage extreme storm events through source control.

  • Limited Drainage Networks

    Many drainage systems are proving inadequate or beginning to fail. We have the proven expertise, experience and specialist products to provide a comprehensive range of tailored, future-proof drainage solutions.

  • Flood Mitigation

    Flooding caused by stormwater is an increasing regional challenge. We can provide a range of more efficient, cost effective and sustainable alternative solutions using SuDS principles.

  • Legislation

    We’re well-versed in local legislation, such as Estidama, GSAS/QSAS and the Dubai Green Building Regulations, to ensure that our product range responds to the changes in planning policies and regulations. 

  • Water Table

    With prevailing geological conditions in the Middle East, we offer a range of flood mitigation solutions for high water table areas. 

  • Polypipe Training

    We offer an unrivalled combination of training, seminars, Technical Centre visits, product literature and tailored support to tackle specific project challenges.
