Development at One Church Square, Pimlico in London, built on a brownfield site within a conservation area, includes of 39 apartments designed around a central courtyard, with a glass roof and rooftop garden to make the most of outside space in a city development.
Timber was used with steel across the project to deliver an industrial aesthetic, which was softened by timber.
Other considerations for the specification of the timber decking:
Anti-slip provision – JB Antislip Plus, graded to C24, was specified with 2 anti-slip inserts for a high level of non-slip performance.
Fire retardant treatment – All decked areas that form part of the fire escape route were fire retardant treated at John Brash’s UK manufacturing plant in Gainsborough. The remainder of the decking was treated during manufacture with osmose naturewood preservative, as standard, to provide a 25 year guarantee against rot and insect attack.
Code for sustainable homes – Timber was specified to help the project achieve Code 4 of the Code for sustainable homes.
All boards meet BS7976 with full FSC and PEFC chain of custody.
Natural decking has the lowest embodied energy of any mainstream building material and is a managed material to deliver a more sustainable product, enhancing the environmental credentials of the project.
