In partnership with Albion Homes, USE Architects constructed a multi-use 5 storey building on Mentmore Terrace’s vacant plot.
A 3 bedroom penthouse with a roof terrace was built at the top of the property.
For the terrace, the architects required an insulation product which would allow them to achieve a compliant U-value without surpassing the internal floor height.
Kingspan’s OPTIM-R Balcony and Terrace System was specified as a solution.
The compact panels use vacuum technology to achieve the required thermal performance of an area.
At 40mm thick, the panels were installed to provide insulation without affecting the building’s aesthetic. Kingspan OPTIM-R Flex Infill strips of the same thickness were also specified for the project.
The strips were cut to fit around penetrations before Kingspan Thermaroof TR27 LPC/FM was used as an overlay.
The installation of Kingspan’s OPTIM-R Balcony and Terrace System enabled the architects to meet the Building Regulation requirements without having to create a level change between the exterior and interior spaces.
The company’s insulation system has been approved by the LABC System.
