Works carried out

Water ingress

Our task was to strip all the tiles from the balconies and common areas above the underground carparks and empty all the effected planter boxes. New screeds and membranes installed before retiling of the balconies and re filling of the planter boxes could then be performed. New rain-heads where also required to take the excess water away.


Removal of all existing surface material inc tiles, screed and any existing membrane.
