Exterior Building Drainage
Albion Riverside is situated alongside the River Thames. On this project, Component Developments were specified for all exterior drainage, and thus produced stainless steel open channel drains and discreet slot drains, which were installed around the perimeter of this iconic London Building.
The exterior drainage channels were required to follow the curve of the building and therefore each channel and grating had to be individually mitred with precision to ensure a seamless fit. Slot drains were required to be hidden below paving slabs. Component Developments achieved this by creating an ultra-thin slot drain which then lined up against the grout line in the paving slabs making sure to leave those areas grout free
To enable easy access, recessed stainless steel boxes were built around the slot drain in appropriate places. These allowed paving slabs to sit inside them, which then fell flush with the floor level. Lifting keys made access discreet and easy.
