of railway arches at Festival Hall, London creates new retail outlets
As part of the
ongoing development of Festival Hall in London the railway viaduct area
has been designated for prime retail development. Waterproofing systems
are being applied to three arches to enable them to be used as retail
The arches are
open to the elements and are subject to the ingress of both rain water and
water contaminated by fuel and oil from passing trains above.
In order to provide internal protection
and to conform to Network Rail requirements First Property Preservation
Ltd were contracted to install Rockwell Arch Lining and waterproof
were carefully and precisely set out around the arch and on the walls at
specific centres to receive the cladding. Then corrugated profile
interlocking sheet cladding was applied internally around the arch and to
the walls. Ingressing water was then channelled behind the internal system
and into preformed drainage channels at the wall/ floor junction.
Following installation of this sytem the shop fitting can be carried out
with the peace of mind that internal finishes will remain dry.
The arch has been clad with
Rockwell Arch Lining.
When this project
is completed there will be three retail units available, suitable for any
kind of retail use. Each project we undertake is backed up by extensive
guarantees giving our client piece of mind now and in the future.
