Axter waterproofing at Centenary Quay

Axter Ltd are proud to have provided the waterproofing for Centenary Quay, Crest Nicholson’s vibrant development on Southampton’s waterfront, including 102 apartments with high rise penthouse flats, retail and commercial space.

Built by Willmott Dixon, phase three of the regeneration incorporated a bio-diverse living roof as well as amenity space built above a Morrisons supermarket. With fully accessible amenity gardens including a flowing water feature, it was vital a robust specification was delivered.

Axter provided all the waterproofing for the development, utilising their Wilotekt Plus system on the podium, to deliver a reliable waterproofing system robust enough to accommodate the water feature and fully accessible amenity space above. Axter also developed a bespoke bio-diverse living roof specification to complement the natural coastal surroundings.

This included specially selected grass and flower species, chosen for their ability to withstand windy coastal conditions. When established, these plants will provide shelter and forage to a range of invertebrates and birds.

Axter worked alongside horticulture specialists and substrate and seed providers to ensure all elements of the roof complied with the Bio-Diversity Design Report for the development.
