Cembrit HD (heavy duty) board has recently been installed in the newly redeveloped East Stand at the home of England Rugby, Twickenham.
Resilient, hard wearing and with an impressive fire rating, HD is an ideal multi-use board for high traffic areas in sports stadia such as Twickenham, where 82,000 fans descend on matchdays.
The new East Stand development is a stunning, world class facility; the project saw KSS, as the lead designer and architect, work with Wildfire London on the interior design concept and delivery.
The expanded East Stand offers six floors of stylish event space, including eight brand new facilities delivering a bespoke hospitality experience for fans.
The British Airways Rose Garden is the new elegant roof terrace on Level 5, and has been designed for a fun and immersive experience.
Massively popular due to its ‘outdoors feel’, which includes a built-in pizza oven and rotisserie, the venue sees a lots of foot traffic on match days.
Supplied by the Hayes branch of Minster, the fast-growing specialist insulation and dry lining distributor, the Cembrit HD board is installed in the Rose Garden itself, in the wings of the facility, as well as on the walls of the adjacent L5 concourse where impact resistance was important as crowds are moving in confined spaces.
A lot of the wall finishes in the Rose Garden are also fixed through the Cembrit boards, including the brick slips behind the rotisserie section.
Kenji Ikegaya, an architect at the KSS practice, commented: “Cembrit’s robust and weather resistant HD boards provided us with flexibility and multipurpose utility in meeting the complex project requirements.
“Their technical advisors were also helpful and informative in pursuing the goals of the project.”
Cembrit HD (Heavy Duty) is a Class A2-s2, d0 fire rated high density building board comprising cement, cellulose and mineral fillers.
Ideal for ‘sealing’ buildings under construction, it is impact resistant and can be left exposed, with no additional treatment required.
HD is also extremely versatile and can be used as partitioning. It is popular in offsite and SIPS construction, as well as internal applications.
