Fulham Jetty

Bauder Bakor 790-11 hot melt structural system with Bauderflex waterproofing system and BauderGREEN sedum system


Fulham Wharf is a landmark regeneration scheme that began in 2013 and included the ecological enhancement of an abandoned jetty on the River Thames. This redevelopment was designed to provide the local community with an ecological education centre and bio-diverse wildlife reserve.

Products applied

BauderGREEN XF 301 
A unique, sedum mat, vegetation blanket developed for use directly over the waterproofing system without the need for a secondary substrate growing medium. This benefits from being the lightest self-contained sedum blanket system available.

A vegetation blanket which contains a broad mix of British Wildflowers grown in substrate on a coir carrier. The natural fibres of the coir carrier promote the rapid rooting of the blanket into the substrate.

Project challenges 

One of the major challenges for this roof was installing the central sloped section, which required exceptional levels of technical input and workmanship. This roofing area was waterproofed with the same bituminous green roof system as the upper roof; however a special timber design for retaining the substrate and sedum blanket was also needed. Since its official opening in October 2013, the lower wildflower roof has become a haven for a variety of different birds and insects.

The result

The building’s new roof swoops down to become a continuum with the jetty deck and is covered with a green habitat providing three distinct environments for wildlife; one on the flat roof, one on the slope and the third on the jetty deck. The education centre roof was waterproofed with Bauder’s root resistant bitumen membrane before then having a sedum blanket fitted. On the lower roof, 650m² of Bauder’s hot melt structural waterproofing was installed along with a wildflower blanket, providing an instant carpet of vegetation.


Systems installed

Bauderflex bituminous waterproofing system


1 BauderPLANT E 42

A torch applied, SBS elastomeric bitumen capping sheet. The product features chemically treated bitumen to deliver superior root resistance which has been tested and approved by the FLL. The membrane is reinforced with 250g/m² spunbond polyester fleece to allow the finished product to cope with structural movement without fracture.


Self-adhesive bitumen underlayer with “DUO” lap technology to ensure thorough sealing of lap joints, even in lower temperatures. The product features a glass fleece reinforcement for strength and stability. The product benefits from cleaner, safer, and faster installation than traditional torch-applied membranes.

3 BauderPIR FA-TE

Lightweight, PIR flatboard insulation board with aluminium foil facing on both sides. This product has zero ozone depletion potential.


Self-adhesive air and vapour control layer with a mica finished upper surface to allow easy bonding of insulation using the specified Bauder Insulation Adhesive


Bauder Bakor 790-11 hot melt waterproofing system


1 BauderPLANT E 42

Torch-on root-resistant, green capping sheet. Reinforced with spunbond polyester fleece to allow the finished product to cope with structural movement without fracture.

2 790-11 with reinforcement layer

Hot melt rubberised bitumen asphalt with a percentage of post-consumer recycled materials that infills and fully bonds to all minor deviations in the deck.
