Case Study: Wates Construction, London

We were first approached by Wates Construction Ltd in the early part of 2015 to quote for the supply of decking to their new £28m landmark. After a few meetings in which we talked through our entire product range and their specific requirements, AB Building Products secured the contract to supply Wates with 3,400m² of our very own AB Composite Decking in July 2015.

Working together with Wates on the 20-storey build, the flagship project for their organization, we were acutely aware that the product needed to be of highest standard in both appearance and performance. Thus, the decision was made for our AB Composite Grey deck boards to be installed on all balconies.

The top floor features two large communal roof terraces that boast stunning views across the London skyline. With such large areas to deck it was decided that a mix of grey and chocolate brown be used to break up the huge space. The advantages of this decking include an approved anti-slip certification and a 20-year guarantee.

From start to finish we believe that this project could not have gone any smoother and sincerely wish all future residents many years of enjoyment from their new and improved balcony terraces. Below is a short testimonial given by Wates Construction regarding their experience with AB Building Products.

"AB Building Products have provided a reliable and professional service throughout the duration of the project which has met all of our clients' needs. They have been quick to assist in all matters from delivery and logistics to design and technical support. I have been thoroughly impressed with the quality of the product supplied by AB and it fits in with high quality spec product we have produced for our client. We have received a first-rate service from AB and look forward to working with them again in the near future."
