National Trust Property

A small pond within the grounds of a modernist property in St Lawrence on the Isle of Wight, was part of the architectural design of the house, but was leaking and was continually having to be topped up with water.
The pond had to be repaired without any disruption to the surrounding landscape. In particular, it was necessary to avoid disturbing the flagstones around the pond, some of which featured inlaid ceramics that had been designed and installed by the original owners. The refurbishment had to be achieved without lifting these. The 4m x 2m, 600mm deep pond was re-lined using TPO membrane. 
The TPO membrane was cut to fit on site. The bespoke pond liner was then installed and sealed without lifting any paving stones. A chase was cut into the concrete below the flagstones to fit the TPO membrane using a special metal profile. The membrane was nailed and riveted in with the liner remaining flush to the surface.

National Trust Property Pond Liner Installation Project

RDL was approached in 2012 regarding the refurbishment of small pond at a property on the Isle of Wight, which had been inherited by the National Trust.

The design brief was to install a suitable pond liner without damaging the surrounding landscape and to avoid disturbing the flagstones around the pond, some of which featured inlaid ceramics that had been designed and installed by the original owners.  It was decided the most suitable material to line the pond was 1.2mm Flagon GeoP TPO membrane.
