    Embassy Gardens, London, UK

    Riser Void Flooring System

    Project Overview

    Building Services Company Briggs and Forrester chose Dura Composites for this complex riser install job. Embassy Gardens is London’s diplomatic precinct by the Thames, the residential and commercial centrepiece of the Nine Elms Regeneration Area and home to the world famous sky pool.

    Riser installation with excellence and proficiency

    Building Services Company Briggs and Forrester were appointed as the M&E contractor for Phase 1 of Embassy Gardens and chose Dura Composites for the complex job of installing secondary supports to allow cut outs to be made to the various GRP grating riser platforms already in situ.

    Prior to Dura Composites surveying the site and making their recommendations, no provision had been made for the service supports needed for mechanical and electrical services to pass through on various floor levels whilst still maintaining the integrity of the riser.

    The Dura Composites Riser Installation Team carried out the required work quickly, proficiently and to a high standard and in accordance with all required Health & Safety criteria.

    Dura Riser Flooring offers a versatile solution suitable for all building types. Its lightweight and non-conductive properties make it an ideal choice, ensuring easy installation without the need for hot works permits. Beyond its adaptability, our riser and smoke shaft flooring provides immediate protection, promoting efficiency and safety at all stages of the building’s construction.

    Project Implementation
    Design & Engineering

    Due to the nature and intricacy of the requirement to stabilise & re-enforce the platform steel in our services risers on all ten levels, we had to investigate the market to find an appropriate specialist that we could trust, to ensure the works were carried out correctly & properly. The comprehensive & detailed proposal we received from Dura Composites which identified the weak points in the platform structure and how to overcome them was both commercially & structurally viable, leading Dura Composites to be our preferred bidder during the tender process. Once the contract was awarded and the Scope of Works was finalised Dura Composite mobilised within days, kept us continuously informed of their progress, and also identified any Health & Safety risks during the installation. Once the works were completed, they also identified how the additional structural supports would be monitored and maintained. In view of the proficiency of their installed works, Dura Composites are now a valued part of our Supply Chain and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for Riser Installation works.
