The Wardian

The inspiration behind The Wardian design was inspired by the explorer, inventor and botanist, Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward.

A doctor by profession, Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward designed an hermetically sealed glass container, created for the transport of exotic plants (The Wardian Case).

This pioneering invention laid grounds for Ballymore’s ingenuity when designing The Wardian Towers.

As a project for Skyler Contracting, it proved a challenge due to the heights and coinciding with one of the wettest winters on record in the UK.

A fully cold applied system with tapered insulation was specified which leant itself to the vast number of complex details including an array of varying sized BMU plinths. With over 1,600sqm of roofing completed, Skyler Contracting were then tasked with the install for the Wardian Glass Case which house an array of rare and exotic plants.

This culminated in being a truly exceptional project, which Skyler Contracting were very proud to be associated with.

Skyler Contracting worked diligently throughout the project, which consisted of over 3,000 sqm and delivered the trust all the requirements the project needed.

Skyler included a Fall Arrest System to all main roof areas alongside all of the bespoke perimeter metal cappings.

Riverview Gardens

This refurbishment project in South West London required a flame free option for the waterproofing to all of the main roof areas.

The original Mastic Asphalt to the roof was over 60 years old and had failed in numerous locations.

Skyler Contracting undertook the waterproofing in its entirety; that provided the guarantee and assurances to the building owners.

A Fully Reinforced Liquid Applied System was used and proved to be perfect for a number of complex details.

St Pancras Way

The project at 104/106 St Pancras Way proved challenging for a number of reasons. Firstly, the roof had leaked for a number of years as numerous detailing elements to the roof had broken down with time.

Skyler identified the causes for water ingress and promptly commenced.

Skyler’s proposal for a seamless waterproofing system was key in providing a complete solution for these historical problems.

The central gutter areas were completely re-lined and fully waterproofed along with a number of complex penetrations and closer details. These were addressed, including the full waterproofing to the entire field area of the roof.

Diligently working throughout, Skyler maintained water tightness for the building throughout the programme.

Harris Academy

Skyler Contracting were chosen as Principal Contractor for the roof refurbishment at Harris Academy in Bermondsey.

The main roof areas were in an extremely poor state and had a number of attempts to stop the leaks over a number of years but to no avail.

Skyler Contracting assembled a full scaffold that totalled twelve storeys to gain independent access to the roof areas.

Works consisted of complete removal of the existing Mastic Asphalt which had failed in many places. Underneath of the Asphalt was a degraded screed that was also removed. This fell outside the original specification and was an addition.

Combining this addition, whilst working in a live school with exams underway, made this an extremely sensitive project. Constant communication with the school hierarchy and detailed schedules as to when each element of works was taking place, became a critical factor in delivering this project to the trust in the defined timeframe.

The project area in total was 500sqm.

Maiden Lane

Skyler Contracting were appointed to undertake the removal of the existing roof coverings, roof-lights and all associated items for the client; Camden Council.

The re-roofing to all areas spanned almost 4,000 sqm and required extremely close management to each element as the units were tenant occupied.

The roofing works comprised of stripping the existing roof, mechanically scabbling the surface, then installing the bituminous system including insulation.

Skyler delivered the project on budget and within the time frame given.
