Prestigious London development relies on Waterco

With rooftop views of London and Wembley Stadium, Canada Gardens is set to become one of the city's coveted residential precincts. Comprised of seven buildings and a podium garden, the development provides 743 residential apartments (303 of affordable tenure) as well as amenity space and ground floor uses. Part of the impressive masterplan is a series of landscaped outdoor areas designed for residents to meet, relax, exercise, and play.

The project's main building contractor was Dublin-based Sisk Group while the various water features were sub-contracted to Fountains Direct Limited, one of the most successful companies of its type established in the United Kingdom.

Public assets and play areas

Fountains Direct managing director Nick Roberts, who has specified Waterco for more than two decades, proposed five separate water features to complement the development's architectural character.

"The range is terrific and the quality consistently high, which complements the other equipment we use," he sexplains.

Under the direction of project manager Paul Everdell and senior site manager Bartlomeij Bozek, the vision was to create focal points for communal areas with high-quality equipment and first-class design principles. The sophisticated concept includes the following standout elements;

1. Fountain and play water feature - 33m³ volume of water:

Designed to function as a fountain pool during the winter months it then transforms itself into a children's splash pad area in summer with seating surrounding the feature where people can sit and relax. Waterco equipment includes:

  • 2 x Micron SMD1200 commercial sand filters.
  • EcoPure Glass Media.
  • 4 x MC16 MultiCyclones.
  • 2 x 5.5HP Hydrostar pumps for the main water filtration.
  • 1 x 5.5HP Hydrostar pump for additional circulation.

2. Two water feature cascade pools - 21m³ total volume of water.

3. Water feature cascade pool - 21m³ volume of water:

The two cascade pools are designed to link the top fountain and play area water feature with the main fountain pool as it winds its way through the apartment buildings. A Waterco 4HP Hydrostar pump is used on the two linked cascading water features to draw filtered water from the main fountain pool and direct it into the top cascading pool, which then flows to the lower cascade pool before returning back into the main fountain pool.

4. Main fountain pool - 330m³ volume of water:

This involves a roadside cascade pool (36m³ volume of water) and a main pool cascade (pool 45m³ volume of water).

Waterco equipment includes:

  • 3 x Micron SMD1200 commercial sand filters.
  • EcoPure Glass Media.
  • 6 x MC16 MultiCyclone and 3 x 5.5HP Hydrostar pumps for the main water filtration.
  • 3 x 5.5HP Hydrostar pumps for the main pool cascade water feature.

A separate system comprising of a Micron SMD1200 commercial sand filter, EcoPure Glass Media, and a 5.5HP Hydrostar pump was installed for the roadside cascade pool.

There are two additional water features situated in the private grounds of Canada Gardens.

5. Cascading waterfall - 4m³ volume of water:

This is the main feature in the public area that involves a roadside cascade pool (36m³ volume of water) and an impressive main cascade pool (45m³ volume of water). The main cascade pool was designed with the following Waterco equipment:

  • 3 x Micron SMD1200 commercial sand filters.
  • EcoPure Glass Media.
  • 6 x MC16 MultiCyclone.
  • 3 x 5.5HP Hydrostar pumps for the main water filtration.
  • 3 x 5.5HP Hydrostar pumps for the main pool cascade water feature.

A separate filtration system comprising of a Micron SMD1200 commercial sand filter, EcoPure Glass Media, and a 5.5HP Hydrostar pump was installed for the roadside cascade pool.

Situated in the private grounds of Canada Gardens are two additional features that can be enjoyed exclusively by the residents.

6. A 7m cascading waterfall - 4m³ volume of water:

This is located in the barbeque area within the private grounds of the apartments where residents can sit down and relax whilst enjoying a drink with friends and family. Waterco equipment used:

  • 1 x Micron SM500 sand filter.
  • EcoPure Glass Media.
  • 1 x MC16 MultiCyclone and 1.0HP Hydrostorm pump.

7. Children's play pool - 7m³ of water:

Again, this is set in the stunning grounds of the apartments for children to paddle in and enjoy on warm summer days while there are various seating points located along the edge of the pool for people to sit and enjoy the serenity. Waterco equipment includes:

  • 1 x Micron SMD900 commercial sand filter.
  • EcoPure Glass Media.
  • 1 x MC16 MultiCyclone and a 3HP Hydrostorm pump for the filtration.

The three fountain jets in the pool are powered by a separate 1.5HP Hydrostorm pump from Waterco.
