Channel drains for Canada Water office

Channel drains for Canada Water office

City: London

Real London, without compromise: The old Surrey Docks were once the heart of London’s timber trade. Now, this area is being transformed into a new residential area - surrounded by parks and waterways. BG Graspointner’s UK Team supplied the drainage products, in this case BG-FILCOTEN® light with slot top. These channel drains are robust, dimensionally stable and still light enough for urban green and open space construction. A perfect match for this project!
