Sainsbury’s Superstore

Sainsbury’s Superstore

The store was having a multi-million-pound refurbishment facelift. Part of that facelift required flood protection barriers to all openings.

Reason for requirement

At the rear of the property runs a small stream that carries away surface water. During heavy downpours, this stream bursts its banks and threatens to flood the superstore. As part of the planning requirements and their own business continuity plans, we were contacted via ISG PLC to supply and install flood protection barriers.

Specifications

x 8 Hydro Flood Barriers and
associated groundworks were required in the following areas:

1) Main Entrance: The main entrance is made up of two automatic double doors. Due to the span, demountable posts were installed to accommodate the flood boards. In the centre of the entrance doors, we installed compression posts to not leave any trip hazards for employees or store visitors.

2) Fire exit doors x 5: To the Sides and rear of the building are a number of fire exits, removable barriers were fixed to the inside of all these doors.

3) Loading-bay doors: on the outside of the Loading bay ramp we installed a watewfall system with demountable posts creating an enclosure that was sealed on three sides preventing any water ingress.
