St Augustine’s Church, Bermondsey

Client: St Augustine’s Church
Type of works: A 6”x4” moulded ogee gutter system, 102mm rainwater downpipes and ornamental rectangular hoppers were installed.

Marley has provided a complete rainwater system to the magnificent St Augustine’s Church in Bermondsey, South East London.

The installation forms part of a conversion of the vast Victorian church into 31 residential units. The required drainage system for this complex project was provided from Marley’s Alutec range. A 6”x4” moulded ogee gutter system, 102mm rainwater downpipes and ornamental rectangular hoppers were installed to service the classic Grade 2 Listed Building.

Alutec aluminium systems are ideal for buildings such as St Augustine’s with traditionally sensitive locations. Guttering can be provided in sleek modern finishes or, as with this project, in traditional styles. The heritage nature of the building meant a sympathetic external restoration was required. Marley’s Alutec moulded gutter system was specifically installed to serve this purpose. The gutter, rainwater pipe and specially designed ornamental hoppers are intended to emulate cast iron in appearance and are even provided in a special textured black polyester powder coating – Heritage black – to match the building’s new slate roof and other existing external features.

David Russell, Technical Manager of the Weybridge Group was delighted with Marley’s contribution: “The Marley Alutec System offered a traditional solution, with a comprehensive range of profiles and fittings, sympathetic to the demands of a Listed Building, whilst providing a low maintenance solution for areas difficult to access in the future. The resultant impressive outcome of the rainwater installation was fundamental to the success of the façade restoration and has been deservedly praised by all involved in this complex project.”

Alutec rainwater systems are suitable for domestic, commercial and industrial applications, both modern and traditional. Each product is available in a range of 20 standard colours (as well as others on request) and is tested to all appropriate BS standards. In addition, Marley offers a free technical advisory service regarding product and installation details
