North Apartments Flemington

North Apartments is a development only minutes from Melbourne’s CBD and is within easy reach of universities, hospitals, public transport and major road networks. The development is by UAG Group.

KHD supplied approx. 600 square metres of Drainage Cell that was used across the entire project to protect the membraine and to facilitate drainage under finished surfaces such as pavers, garden beds and synthetic turf.

One of the pleasing elements of developments such as North is the interesting and high quality landscape areas, which help green our cities. The use of Drainage Cell within these landscaped areas is a long-term investment in the health of the building.

KHD supplies sub soil drainage cells which was innovatively used on two diverse projects.

Looking for a Smart Drainage System?

Drainage Landscape SolutionsVersiFlex

VersiFlex is an interlocking drainage cell system ideal for use in planter boxes, roof top gardens and retaining walls. What makes VersiFlex unique is its ability to conform and fit to uneven surfaces such as curved walls and slopes.

If you are designing a project with a retailing wall, rather than using gravel as the drainage system, we recommend specifying VersiFlex, which can reduce the hydrostatic pressure on the wall.

VersiFlex is stackable and its nestable design reduces onsite storage space and transport costs.

VersiCell

VersiCell is a sub surface drainage system ideal for retaining walls, sports fields, under pavers and for underground infiltration and water storage tanks.

The key feature of this system is its strength, which means that VersiCell can be used in traffic areas as opposed to dimpled, or cuspated sheet systems. Bobcats can drive on it with a minimum of 300mm of soil covering the geotextile. This makes it ideal for large landscaped areas.
