The versatility of Wavin plastic pipes:

adapting a ventilation system to be installed underground

When Wavin Norway was contacted by Skorve Entreprenør AS to deliver Wavin DN1800 pipes as ventilation pipes installed underground for a new school in Kongsberg, they were excited to embark on such a dynamic, new project. In fact, an underground ventilation system (UVS) actually optimizes the use of space and eliminates the need for indoor ducts by placing the ventilation system in the ground. It’s an ideal application for schools, hospitals, factories and commercial buildings. Read more to learn what a UVS – done right – really looks like.

Wavin’s stellar reputation brings new business

The project is a new school, Vestsiden Skole, in Kongsberg. Werner immediately thought of Wavin for the project because he had a good experience when he worked with us (and our XL pipes) while at his former company.
