About This Project
New River Head is a historic site located adjacent to Sadler’s Wells Theatre on Rosebery Avenue in the Clerkenwell area of London, England. Originally it was the London terminus of the New River, an artificial watercourse opened in 1613 to supply water to London. Subsequently the site also became the headquarters for the New River Company, the owners of the New River, and for its successors, the Metropolitan Water Board, the Thames Water Authority and Thames Water plc.
Following relocation of most of the operational and administrative functions of the site, it is now largely a residential estate, with apartments in a mixture of repurposed existing and new buildings surrounding a private garden area on the site of the old filter beds.
Our sister company, Buzon UK Ltd, were contracted to install the ZERODECK + A-PED system on a private roof terrace on one of the apartments. With the natural fall of the roof, the void varied from 130 – 170mm so the A-PED was the perfect choice with its integrated slope correction functionality and wide load-spreading base which allowed installation directly on top the waterproof membrane. ZERODECK was clip-fixed to the A-PED-JOIST to give a perfect finish.
The client required steps from the access door down to the terrace and so the installation team attached ZERODECK boards to a frame constructed from REIF Duralink, surface mounting the fascia boards and clip-fixing the steps.
