Category: Case study
Written by Super User

The Signal rises 22 storeys over one of the most exciting residential redevelopment areas in central south London. The building is the embodiment of contemporary urban living encompassing the ever growing demands of London’s home owners. Being one of the tallest new residential development in the area, it boasts stunning views across London – from Battersea Power Station to the west, over to the West End and then The City to the north and Canary Wharf in the east.

The buildings is located directly adjacent to the mainline railway and a lightweight alternative to stone was required to satisfy national rail health and safety requirements, whilst delivering the quality of façade outlined by the local planning department. The Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) system was specified incorporating 50mm expanded polystyrene insulation and is finished with a bespoke Dryvit speciality TerraNeo finish.

The Signal will act as a catalyst for the total transformation of Newington Causeway. It is at the start of an array of hugely important landmark developments along this stretch. The façade of the building consists of sheathed lightweight steel frame clad with 3,600m2 of Dryvit Outsulation external wall insulation system (EWI). Completed 2014

Built by Lend Lease the new Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital (NSECH) near Cramlington is the first of an innovative new model of emergency care facilities to be built throughout the UK. This new concept of hospital care has a clear outset goal - saving more lives and improving clinical outcomes for patients.

Dryvit worked closely with the Architect and the Design Team from Lend Lease to ensure the most suitable system specification was found that could meet the stringent requirements set out by both building control and the NHS, such as fire performance, whilst delivering the highest levels of aesthetic finish on such a large and challenging project. From the outset the Project Team required a system that could achieve a strong thermal performance to meet the projects goal of 0.19 W/m2k whilst providing a high quality finished white and blue smooth render that could achieve the complex design intent of the scheme. 19,000 m2 of Dryvit's Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) system was installed directly onto a lightweight steel frame and sheathing board substrate. Completed: 2014.

Premier Inn Sunderland

The development of the new Premier Inn in Central Sunderland provides the City with much needed hotel accommodation in line with the Councils regeneration goals. Dryvit worked closely with the Architect, Faulkner Browns, and the Design Team from GB Group to ensure the most suitable system specification was found that could meet the requirements set out by both Building Control and the Client. With the building height in excess of 18 meters it is classified by Building Control as a high rise building and therefore the chosen cladding system had to satisfy their stringent requirements for fire performance. As the Dryvit Outsulation system with its expanded polystyrene (EPS) core held the relevant BR 135 classification and LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) certification relevant for a steel frame substrate it was well placed to meet their requirements whilst delivering a scope of specification which satisfied the projects design intent in terms of thermal performance, aesthetics and cost – making it the most suitable option for the works. 1,500m2 of the Outsulation insulated render system installed. Completed 2014.

The Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) system has been installed over blockwork and finished the acrylic Sandpebble texture to provide a durable and clean cut façade. Area: 300sq meters.

Aberdeen Lane

Built by Ardmore Construction for their Client Taylor Wimpey, Aberdeen Lane is a high quality development in Islington consisting of 72 new homes, 65 apartments and 7 town houses, and offices. The main residential development is found in the central apartment blocks over a single level basement which accommodates both car parking facilities and plant. 

The Project Design team had the outline brief that the residential scheme had to achieve BREEAM Excellent Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4. Due to the specifiers concerns over fire performance the original external wall insulation (EWI) specification also called for a mineral wool insulation to be incorporated within the system. Upon consultation with Dryvit, the Project Design team selected the Dryvit Outsulation Rail system for use as it met the outline design intent for the project, whilst its LPCB fire certification and use of BREEAM A+ rated EPS, (Expanded Polystyrene), made it the obvious choice for the works. Completed 2014.
