Barratt London's Nine Elms Point development is made up of 645 homes contained in seven buildings and two iconic towers. Its residents can choose from a range of high-specification options, including contemporary wetrooms.

The developer asked wetroom specialist Impey to come up with a bespoke linear drainage solution that would drain excess water effectively from powerful rainforest showerheads while enhancing the look of the rooms in keeping with the overall feel of the development.

A standard off-the-shelf product would have been too short, so Impey engineered a bespoke elongated design with a floor channel drainage moulding that is installed first and screeded in place.

The polished stainless-steel linear drain top was designed in three parts for easy installation after completion, helping to prevent accidental damage on site. The drainage system was fitted using Impey's own 'fit-and-forget' WaterGuard self-adhesive tanking product in over 600 of the development's apartments and has proved so effective that installation at other Barratt London sites is now being considered.
