London hotel get canopy drainge

A major London development has been supplied with Harmer Building Drainage’s SML below ground drainage system.

The project, sited at The Minories, Aldgate, saw the introduction of the first Canopy by Hilton hotel in the UK. Working with contractors PCW Drainage Ltd and A J Morrisroe, Harmer supplied below ground drainage for the hotel’s new double storey basement box.

Wayne Willmott, national sales manager for Harmer Drainage said: “It’s an unusual site. The contractor constructed a double storey basement box and podium slab to support a 16-storey residential block and a 14-storey hotel extension. It covers a footprint of around 3,500 metres across a narrow site. There were multiple levels of earlier construction to work through, including foundations and piles that date back to the 19th century.

“The construction required drainage with excellent load bearing strength,” continues Wayne, “as well as the assurance of durability and maintenance free, so our Harmer SML drainage was the ideal choice.”
