Alumasc Apex Heritage Cast Iron products trusted to complete refurb of iconic Royal A
The Royal Albert Hall in the heart of vibrant west London is distinctive for its unique circular architecture and Victorian styling, and famous for bringing a wealth of high-brow art and culture to the city since it opened in 1871.
A building such as the Royal Albert Hall is not only a building, but part of the heritage of its surrounding community. For this reason, the Royal Albert Hall Grade One Listed and meaning all proposed renovation works must meet strict regulations put in place to ensure the preservation and respectful enhancement of the building.
Sir Robert McAlpine were awarded the overall contract to deliver a programme of upgrade, renovation and refurbishment work. So, when it came to replacing the original water management systems that had been in place since it’s opening, the challenge was on to find a manufacturer and installer that would bring the Hall the best products possible that were also in keeping with these requirements.
Gutterworks, an Alumasc approved installer, installed Alumasc Rainwater management systems during the refurbishment in 2018. Alumasc was chosen for its ability to analyse and precisely recreate the original gutter and pipe mouldings that were used in the originally installed systems, therefore contributing to the preservation of the historic building. Over ten years ago, Alumasc Rainwater management systems were installed in a similar project at Kings Cross St Pancras Station.
With the need to retain as much of the Royal Albert Hall’s original character and features as possible, Apex Heritage Cast Iron gutters and downpipes were moulded to exactly replicate the originals. They were successfully installed promising another 30 years or more of smooth-running water management, that also maintains the period look of the building.
Phil Lapping, Regional Sales Manager and Estimator at Gutterworks, said: “To look at the Royal Albert Hall now, you wouldn’t even notice there had been any changes. And that’s the point of great water management systems- they’re meant to work smoothly and blend seamlessly with the design of the building so that you don’t even notice them. The building—especially this building—should always be the main focus.
“With this in mind, there was no question about which brand should be used to complete this heritage project. Gutterworks have had a very good relationship with Alumasc for a number of years and have first-hand experience of the company’s ability to provide first class service and products, whatever the specification.”
Phil explained a little of the process: “We began by removing the original downpipes, hoppers and gutters. Sandcast bespoke patterns were made, the products cast and finished with the Alumasc certified painted finish, so we were able to install the finished product on site, with no painting required.
“This was a sensitive project due to the historical value of the building and every little accessory attached to it. We are always confident when using Alumasc products on historical or listed buildings as we know that they will meet the standards required by council regulations.”
Using the traditional skills of expert craftspeople, coupled with modern manufacturing technology, Alumasc can copy and create bespoke designs for projects which require the utmost attention and sensitivity.
Ben Green, Divisional Marketing Manager at Alumasc WMS commented: “We will always ensure our products meet industry standards, with the objective of exceeding expectations in terms of durability and performance. In the case of historical projects, the client can rest assured that we are able to create almost any design bespoke, that will meet regulations.”
Alumasc WMS is the UK leader in metal rainwater systems with an unrivalled range of aluminium, cast iron & steel and now the new copper and quartz zinc systems.

exclusive roof gardens for the residents of The Old Vinyl Factory
Blackdown Greenroofs provides exclusive roof gardens for the residents of The Old Vinyl Factory, West London.
A place that seeks to find the perfect balance between work and play, The Old Vinyl Factory is home to a large, young community and provides them with commercial and leisure facilities, restaurants, shops, cafes and bars.
But this isn’t all. Far above the ground, a series of roof gardens and patios have also been sensitively developed by Blackdown Greenroofs, catering to the large number of young families and working parents in the community.
The four main blocks rise above a central podium area, hiding their private oasis from the general public, making them a haven of calm and tranquillity that extend the idea of living space to the outdoors.
Landscaped to provide opportunities for relaxation as well as play areas for children, small trees and shrubs provide the gardens privacy, while playground apparatus complete the area.
Having a recreational green area is a huge and often rare benefit to urban and city dwellers, who may not have access to nearby public parks or natural areas. Research has shown that those who regularly spend time in a natural environment have improved mental, physical and even emotional health.
The gardens also replace most of the green space that may have otherwise occupied the space where The Old Vinyl Factory buildings sit, encouraging local natural wildlife and aiding biodiversity.
To achieve this, Blackdown Greenroofs installed an intensive green roof with integrated bespoke intensive planters containing a variety of wildflowers, sedums and shrubs, alongside some paved areas, benches and decking. An intensive green roof features a substrate of increased depth, so that planting can be similar to that on the ground: planters, lawns, trees and shrubs all have a healthy home here.
Rob Beswick at B D Landscape Architects, who designed the space, said: “I have been really impressed with the completed development. The podium landscape and roof terraces are well installed and it’s great to see a project where the quality of the soft landscape hasn’t been compromised.”
The children’s play area includes large pebble seats, bears, large 3D resin play models and active play equipment. Permanent irrigation systems are installed to ensure the gardens’ longevity and that this area in particular doesn’t flood.
With providing the utmost health and safety in mind, gates and fencing were also installed, all using specialist fixing methods to ensure the integrity of the waterproofing membrane below the green roof was not compromised.
