The Royal Albert Dock development, built on the site of historic wharves, features over 430,000m2 of commercial and residential space, directly opposite London City Airport in the London Borough of Newham. There will be six separate phases of the development, with Multiplex contracted to deliver Phase 1.
FIS supported Multiplex and Mitchellson, the concrete frame contractor, with the design of the gas protection measures to the structures which included a basement. Protection was primarily provided by the Hydroprufe 9000 which is a gas-resistant damp-proof membrane for the ground floor slabs. However the basement structure was protected using the Combi-Seal gas and waterproof membrane.
