Impey develops bespoke linear drainage for London’s high-profile South Bank development

Nine Elms Point is part of the high-profile, Nine Elms on the South Bank regeneration project, which will see 20,000 new homes, parks, public spaces, shopping areas, commercial buildings, recreation areas, cycle lanes, sports pitches and its own Tube station created in a three-kilometre stretch on the South side of the Thames.

Residents of Barratt London’s Nine Elms Point will be able to take advantage of modern, luxuriously designed wetrooms. The elongated width of the linear wetroom channel in the design meant that a standard ‘off the shelf’ product would be far too short, so Barratt London commissioned Impey’s experienced R&D team to create a bespoke product, which would enhance the look of the wetrooms, as well as effectively draining away excess water from the powerful rainforest showerheads.

The team’s final design incorporates a functional and robust floor channel drainage moulding which could be installed first and screeded in place. The polished stainless steel linear wetroom drain top could then be fitted on completion, to prevent any accidental damage happening on site.

Speaking of the development, Stephen Pelling, National Specification Manager, Impey said, “Designing a new linear drainage solution for the wetrooms at Nine Elms Point was an exciting project. The Impey R&D team engineered an attractive, multifunctional product; taking into consideration the necessity for a striking, contemporary design and ease of on-site installation in over 600 wetrooms. We bought the product in on-budget and Barratt London were very pleased with the results.”
