Georgian terrace refurbishment, Craven Hill Gardens, Bayswater

Formerly the 5-Star Hempel Hotel, 31-35 Craven Hill Gardens is a row of Georgian terraced houses in Bayswater which is currently undergoing a multi-million pound transformation into a series of 18 luxury apartments befitting of its location near Hyde Park. As part of the redevelopment, the facades were refurbished with much of the building behind rebuilt to a new configuration.

Product brief:

The various roofs of the terraced houses required refurbishment to ensure exceptional waterproofing integrity, with Proteus Waterproofing providing a comprehensive range of solutions that met the design, budget and guarantee requirements of the project.

The specialist contractor specified the high performance Proteus Pro-Felt® Ultima in black for the main roof while Proteus Pro-Felt® Ultima Anti-Root Membrane in green was specified for the green roofs. The mansard gutters benefited from fast and simple application of Proteus Pro-System® in mid-grey while the lower terraces and basement areas, which were in a confined area, required the cold applied and seamless Cold Melt® waterproofing system.

Key Requirement: Minimal disruption

With one of the main challenges on the project a logistical one due to the only access available through the building, the specialist contractor, main contractor and suppliers had to work closely to ensure there were no delays to the build programme. The range of solutions from Proteus Waterproofing ensured minimal disruption and inconvenience.

Key Requirements: Quality Control

Due to the scale and complex nature of the works, Proteus Waterproofing and the specialist contractor worked in close partnership to successfully deliver the project to a very high standard.

Key Requirement: Long term performance
