The Triangle, Cambridge Assessment’s new international HQ, brings together the company’s staff under one Alumasc-protected roof, utilising BluRoof and Blackdown Green Roof systems.
Designed by HLM/Sidell Gibson Architects, all flat roof areas feature Alumasc Roofing Systems’ Hydrotech Hot Melt and Alumasc XPS insulation, providing a complete system solution.
All upper main roof areas drain onto three single storey podiums, which have the patented, single source Alumasc BluRoof Drainage System, as well as the Blackdown Green Roof, to ensure a comfortable space for people to enjoy.
Alumasc’s BluRoof system lowers and controls the peak rate of storm water discharge from roof areas.
The BluRoof drainage strategies were brought in at design stage to help meet SuDS (Sustainable Drainage Systems) requirements; this saw Alumasc work substantially with Capita to achieve the required reduction in rainwater run-off.
Wayne Farrington from Cambridge Flat Roofing, the Alumasc-registered approved contractor who carried out the installation commented on the ‘excellent contract to be involved in’, which was one of its first major BluRoof projects.
“The level of service and input from Alumasc’s Technical department, both internally and on-site, along with Alumasc’s Customer Services team, have been outstanding,” he said.
“Combined with the Hydrotech BluRoof Structural Waterproofing system, a system we have significant trust and experience in installing, we feel we’ve delivered a project we can be proud of.
“The feedback we’ve received from our client has been extremely positive and we look forward to our next Alumasc BluRoof.”
