Bordering the Thames in Fulham and set in 42 acres of magnificent grounds, The Hurlingham Club is recognised throughout the world as one of Britain’s greatest private members’ clubs.
Cable entry ductwork running into a plant room to service a new swimming pool needed sealing from the ingress of water from the River Thames.
Reason for Requirement
The Hurlingham Club is directly adjacent to the River Thames in London and as a result has a very high water table. During the building of the new swimming pool, ductwork was laid to the building through which power cables run. A week or so after the backfilling of the trenches that contain the ductwork, water started to enter into the Plant Room from the ducts due to joins on the ductwork failing. If left un-attended this would have caused flooding and severe damage.
Using a variety of systems, we were able to successfully seal the ducting from the ingress of water whilst at the same time closing the end of the ducts with fire retardant sealant.
