London’s Metropolitan Police Service headquarters have moved to the neo-classical Curtis Green Building on Victoria Embankment, London.
Formerly known as Whitehall Police Station, the Curtis Green Building- which began construction in 1935 – served as part of the Met’s three-building headquarters during the Second World War as well as housing the forensics and technology departments. As part of this £58m, Cemplas installed Delta’s cavity membrane systems to the interior of the sub-basement and basement levels with RIW’s Cementflex & Sheetseal to lift pits and wet rooms on sub-basement, lower ground, 1st, 6th & 7th floors. Serious water ingress issues in the sub-basement had to be dealt with using Sika 1 & 4 prior to commencing cavity membrane works. Logistics for the works were of paramount importance also.
