Wallbarn supports rooftop terrace at The Big Chill

Wallbarn supports rooftop terrace at The Big Chill

Adjustable supports by Wallbarn were used to construct a roof terrace at The Big Chill in Islington.

The Big Chill is a bar and restaurant in Islington’s King’s Cross, in one of the trendy upcoming areas of London.

The bar wished to construct a roof terrace above the single storey section of the bar for its clients to use. The deck was a fairly complicated area with many changes of level and multiple objects present including rooflights and ventilation ducts.

After waterproofing works the area was to be covered with both paving slabs and timber decking. Wallbarn’s adjustable supports were used for the paving areas.

They helped create a clean, uniform paving line, whilst supporting the paving slabs adequately around the many awkward angles and on the roof.

The many changes in level could be accommodated easily by adjusting the telescopic stem piece, creating one seamless upper level, balanced and sturdy – essential for an area which would be trafficked by so many people.

Boundaries and parapet walls could be paved right up to the edge, meaning the slabs were always properly supported, eliminating any risks of the slabs tipping or rocking.

Electicity cables and other services were hidden beneath the slabs, avoiding any risk of exposed cables becoming a health and safety issue.

The timber decking area was constructed by placing timber joists onto adjustable support pads which could be adjusted at the stem to create a correct level for the decking planks whilst still allowing full drainage beneath the structure.

Structures were then installed onto this deck and the finishing touches were carried out.
