One of the Oldest Reservoirs in London
Built in 1863, Kidderpore reservoir is one of the oldest reservoirs in London. The brickwork structure is also a very fine example of Victorian engineering. The reservoir supplies drinking water to11,000 homes in north London.
The project involved replacing the existing aluminium roof, installed in 1963, with a new concrete cover slab. The roof was supported by some impressive Victorian brickwork arches which were exposed for the first time in 50 years in order for works to be carried out.
GSS Piling was contracted to design and install stitch piles to enhance the pier capacities within the reservoir and support anew concrete cover slab.
