To complete an award-winning renovation scheme, the London Borough of Islington retained a tried and tested team to deliver a continued single source of accountability of estate refurbishment.

Thus, residents in Salisbury Walk on the Girdlestone Estate are benefitting from improved thermal and natural light performance, guaranteed to last for decades.
The renovation of the estate’s roofs won the Reinforced Bituminous Membrane category in the 2018 Roofing Awards. The award-winning team of Mears Group plc, Langley Waterproofing Systems Ltd, and Langley Approved Contractor Opus Waterproofing Solutions Ltd was utilised to deliver this latest phase.
