69no. Lakeside Barriers protect the Home Office from flooding

Lakeside have installed 69no. Demountable Flood Barriers to the Home Office, Waterside Court, Leeds. 360m of barrier was required to protect all potential ingress points to the premises, including both door and window protection.

Lakeside were selected at project design stage by the architect WHP Architecture, to provide input into the design elements of the flood defences and their integration with the building. This allowed us to provide the following bespoke product innovation for the site:

  • Slimline Stainless Steel 304 Barrier Side Posts, only 65mm wide to fit optimally in the small door and window opening reveals
  • Storage Container solution
  • Powder coating of barriers to match the building façade

We are pleased to report that the Lakeside barriers have been proven to work in the last real-life flood event:

“The barriers have been utilised in the last flood. On the 20th February the water reached 450mm above finished floor level and the building remained dry and operational.”
