Aggregate Industries‘ Highflow S flooring screed was installed at the new Gower Gardens residential care home in Halesowen, Birmingham.
LNT Carehome Developments constructed the new home that includes 66 en-suite bedrooms, a cafe for family and friends, hair salon and cinema room.
It was decided that space heating was required to provide gentle low-temperature heat via an underfloor system and avoid the use of ‘hot-to-touch’ radiators. AquaGem Heating designed the underfloor heating system, with screeding contractor, Midlands Floor Screeding, assisting during the installation process.
Highflow S from Aggregate Industries was chosen due to its ideal fluidity characteristics, ease of application and overall functionality.
Jodie Hill, Customer Service Manager for Ready-mix Concrete, from Aggregate Industries said Highflow S completely encases the underfloor heating, providing excellent heat transfer properties.
In addition, Highflow S has outputs up to 10 times greater than that of conventional screed and can be laid quickly and efficiently, requiring an average of three deliveries per day from Aggregate Industries, resulting in a high impact resistant surface without jointing areas.
Managing Director at Midlands Floor Screeding, Liane Dewsbury said the project delivery needed to be seamless and quality at its best, due to the heath and care aspect of the building, so to have the extra technical capability on site was extremely valuable to us.
