    Elephant Park, London, UK

    Riser Void Flooring System

    Project Overview

    Elephant Park is a new mixed-use development in Elephant & Castle, London SE17 and is one of London’s largest regeneration schemes. Morrisroe were awarded the contract for the concrete construction of the buildings at plots H04 and H05 and chose Dura Composites GRP Riser Solutions as a safe and structural flooring for the service risers.

    Riser void coverings delivered to site ready-made.

    d² GRP Dura Grating has lower installation costs than steel and can be up to 80% lighter, so when used with our cast in riser modules, it can be easily manually handled into position, eliminating the need for heavy lifting equipment.

    It is easily adapted to suit services passing through floors and can be easily cut on site using standard hand power tools without the need for hot works permits.

    The leave-in-place alternative to post-pour fixing.

    Over 2000 Dura Riser Void Coverings have been supplied to the Elephant Park project to date. The cast in modules and GRP grating are a safer, leave-in-place alternative to post pour fixing and can be pre-fabricated to suit the individual measurements of each riser void. We provide full design capabilities with PI insurance for the design and can also provide contract installation.

    Dura Composites products were selected for this phase of Elephant Park by AJ Morrisroe & Sons, specialists in civil engineering, ground works and sub and superstructure RC frame construction.

    Defining your Riser strategy


    Dura’s GRP Riser Solutions proved ideal for this project as they were delivered to site ready-made for quick installation. The cast in Dura Riser Modules and Dura Grating negate the requirement for heavy lifting equipment and significantly reduce installation costs, as service holes can be cut in situ without the need for post fixing or hot works permits. The team at Dura Composites offer superb technical and CAD support, and we look forward to working with them on other projects.
