Residential carpark polymer anti-flood refurb Belsize Park NW3

This residential car park in Belsize Park, Hampstead Heath, Camden (NW3) suffered a serious flood from the upper main road due to on-street rainwater drains being blocked solid from lack of maintenance.

Realising that simply renewing the copper was likely to result in further metal theft (owing to the single storey, semi-hidden location with rear access) AND that the insurance renewal excess would cost as much again as new copper roofing, the Practice Manager sourced us for an alternative...

Ipswich Velux Roof Window Timber New Build

The building plans for this new build timber extension in Ipswich in Sussex involved two velux roof windows set into a flat timber roof edged with a deep fascia. The low angle of the skylights meant there was no room for error in sealing and waterproofing the roof windows, making the seamless, jointless polymer roofing system ideal for the project.
