Project Description

New River Head is a historic site located adjacent to Sadler’s Wells Theatre on Rosebery Avenue in the Clerkenwell area of London, England. Originally it was the London terminus of the New River, an artificial watercourse opened in 1613 to supply water to London. Subsequently the site also became the headquarters for the New River Company, the owners of the New River, and for its successors, the Metropolitan Water Board, the Thames Water Authority and Thames Water plc.

Now converted in to a residential development, Buzon UK Ltd were contracted to install the ZERODECK + A-PED system on a private roof terrace on one of the apartments. With the natural fall of the roof, the void varied from 130 – 170mm so the A-PED was the perfect choice with its integrated slope correction functionality and wide load-spreading base which allowed installation directly on top the waterproof membrane. ZERODECK was clip-fixed to the A-PED-JOIST to give a perfect finish.

The client required steps from the access door down to the terrace and so the installation team attached ZERODECK boards to a rail-based frame, surface mounting the fascia boards and clip-fixing the steps.

The full system, from the pedestal right up to the surface finish, (ZERODECK from Alfresco Floors) forms a Class A fire-rated system and meets the clients requirements for a non-combustible terrace.


Buzon UK has been a key partner to Domus for many years. Mike and his team have always been very supportive, offering us the most modern and technically proficient pedestal systems available. Their expertise in sub-floor systems and installation allows us to support our Architectural and Contractor partners to the very best of our ability.

Anthony Wrinch, Sales Director

I have known Mike personally and his professional team of installers at Buzon UK for over 12 years.  They make light work of problems and are a solution driven firm who I trust implicitly to deliver the quality my clients expect.  I would recommend Mike and his team at Buzon UK, as I regularly do, in a heartbeat.

Scott Faulks, Managing Director
Arena Stone and Ceramics Ltd

Mike and the team from Buzon UK are highly professional, creative and knowledgeable. After discussing the requirements of our brief, they helped us detail and present a robust paving solution for a high-end public realm landscape installation, using outdoor ceramic tiles with a support system of ALUrail and Buzon pedestals.  Buzon's system is, in my opinion, one of the most impressive on the market.
