Alumasc roof solutions for riverside homes complex

Residents of the latest phase of a West London development can enjoy landscaped podium areas with planted beds thanks to stormwater management systems from Alumasc Exterior Building Products.

Podium areas at Kew Bridge

Kew Bridge, a St James Homes project, is a celebration of all that makes riverside living rewarding. Close to the heart of fashionable, historic Kew, it combines an idyllic location with stunning architecture and a wealth of facilities.

The use of the Alumasc Blue Roof Stormwater Management Systems within the two soft and hard landscaped podium areas provided an ideal ecological solution to meet the project requirements. The soft landscape areas incorporate an intensive green roof build up system supplied by Blackdown in order to maintain NHBC standards of ‘single source’.

The Hydrotech Hot Melt System is the preferred waterproofing system of St James Homes and has been utilised along with Derbigum Bituminous Membranes to provide waterproofing solutions for the various roof areas and terraces for this London development.

All calculations for the Blue Roof were provided by the Alumasc Roofing Technical Department to ensure the appropriate drainage attenuation levels are achieved.

Alumasc prepared a comprehensive specification covering insulated inverted roof areas, green roof areas incorporating an intensive growing medium build up and the company’s unique Blue Roof system to attenuate stormwater beneath the hard-landscaped podium areas.

This project will be supported by the unique Alumasc Promise Warranty.
