Materials from the only UK-based single ply manufacturer, IKO Polymeric, have been used to roof a new, premium apartment building at Center Parcs, Elveden Forest.
ArmourPlan P single ply membrane, IKO enertherm PIR insulation board and Spectravap (as the Vapour Control Layer) were used by Roofing contractor UK Waterproofing to waterproof the 2,000m2 roof.
Previously, UK Weatherproofing Solutions had used Armourplan SM (mechanically-fixed) and SG (fleece-backed) roofing membranes and the performance and ease of installation were key factors in using IKO Polymeric products again.
A private balcony and daily maid service are featured for each one-bed flat in Breckland Apartments. Aesthetics and quality were important factors in its design and build, with 48 apartments and 400 acres of beautiful suffolk countryside.
Completely UV stable throughout, making it more durable and longer-lasting, made the polyester reinforced PVC membrane Armourplan P an ideal choice.
CPMG Architects designed the apartments and B&K Building Services built them, using techniques to suit the environmentally sensitive location to minimise the impact of construction on both the surroundings and the guests at the holiday park.
