IKO PLC has recently taken part in a programme to replace roof coverings and better insulation levels on the Victorian roof terrace at the Chesham and Hanover Buildings in Mayfair, London.
Landlords Peabody wanted the contractor to use materials to resonate with the existing style of the Listed building, so IKO Permaphalt mastic asphalt was chosen.
The new IKO Permaphalt roofing waterproofing system took the place of the coverings already in place, whilst improving insulation levels, with the help of IKO enertherm insulation boards.
Given the flats are a listed building, the existing features had to be preserved, including the decorative Victorian railings around the roof. To avoid them being damaged, they were removed and re-introduced upon completion.
Working with contractor Eddie Sinclair of Sinclair Roofing, IKO’s Mastic Asphalt Technical Department designed a carbon neutral roofing system, using internationally approved carbon credits to offset the carbon footprint.
IKO’s 20 year guarantee was also a big plus for the project, as it offered Peabody and the tenants the long term solution they sought.
