Victoria & Albert Museum, London

Key Features

Stainless steel hidden channels, which are suited for draining large areas, are finished with block paving to provide an aesthetic solution. Can be designed and manufactured in house to accommodate a range of paving thicknesses, flow rates and any bespoke design detail requirements.

On this project Wade worked closely with the architect to provide a solution for a large area of block paving which needed to be drained effectively following critical water entrapment, due to this product being installed over the exhibition area of the museum. Several design challenges were overcome as the paved area had random shapes, so bespoke access cover shapes were required and a curved channel to follow the curve of the glass in the café windows.
