Regarded as London’s finest riverfront residences, Riverwalk is a unique development on the River Thames the heart of London. Working with the architect and developer, Wetroom Materiaat ls specified and supplied over 300 wet room systems of the highest quality. Working with all parties from specification to completion, we ensured the correct products were used and installed as required.
The architects and interior designers of the Riverwalk project wanted to create an identity that would serve justice to the iconic location of the residential structure. Wetroom Materials were asked to provide a drainage solution that would be in keeping with the building’s image.
All drainage options would have to be decided while considering the tiling process to allow for the tile contractor to ensure suitable tile packages were used. Extra precautions were needed to allow for easy installation and construction of the floor foundations, whilst accommodating the specified shower heads. It was essential that the wet room drainage was to be able to carry 40ltrs per minute whilst only having 1 outlet.
The drainage solutions used included only one outlet per drain. To meet the minimum requirement of 40ltrs per minute, we opted for our high-capacity drainage solutions that can carry 52ltrs of water per minute. This allowed for a high volume of water to be displaced from the showers and removed effectively and efficiently by the drainage channel.
The installation process was made easier by the use of drain units with only a singular outlet position. A ClassicLine drain finish was chosen to complete the wet room design. The simple design of the drain cover provides a minimalistic and traditional wet room look. The robust and durable stainless steel material used to create the product ensures the longevity of the project.
Working closely with the architect, developer and tile contractor throughout the entirety of the project, Wetroom Materials specified and supplied over 300 professional-grade wet room systems to the Riverwalk project. We worked alongside all parties to ensure that the corrects products, procedures, and materials were used in the making of the Riverwalk wet rooms.
My client bought a range of Wet Room Unislope Systems from our local retailer, Bathworks. We struggled to find anyone to come to site and take responsibility for the waterproofing until we came across Wet Room Materials. They were willing to stand over their tanking system and more than helpful throughout all stages of the installation from site survey and room preparation to installation. A 10 Year no leak fully insured warranty gave me the confidence that we were dealing with a professional organisation. I would highly recommend these guys and will certainly be using them going forward.

I have honestly found, Wet Room Materials to be an easy and reliable company to work with. Whether it be a one wet room residential project, apartment block or a gym; they ensure there are no installation problems and we don’t have to worry about leaks. They take care of the specification and advising us on correct build ups and preparation. On a recent project we were able to buy their Unislope System p from our bathroom show room retailer and they subsequently came to site to tank out the bathrooms. It was a time sensitive job and The Wet Room lads worked through the evening and into the weekend to ensure we completed the project on time. I have no hesitation in recommending Wet Room Materials. They are a pleasure to deal with.

In Bright Designs, we understand the importance of specifying a reliable waterproofing system for bathrooms. We have worked on a number of projects with Wet Room Materials over the years and I can honestly say that their waterproofing installation service offers complete peace of mind for us and our clients. The Wet Room Materials Team are there throughout all stages of the project from site survey and specification to installation. More importantly they also give us a 10 year no leak guarantee. I also like the fact that they will handle communication with the client and contractors in terms of delivering a high-quality installation which allows me the head space to focus on other aspects of the build."
