The new 96-bedroom Premier Inn in Tottenham Hale has been finished with Dryvit Custom Brick to achieve the appearance of London Stock.

Main Contractor RBG Group contacted Dryvit as they required a system that was capable of sole adhesive fix to sheathing board. 1,600 m2 of Dryvit's Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) system was installed as it held the relevant BR 135 classification and LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) certification, which was instrumental in satisfying building control requirements and securing the specification.

Earlsdon Park Retirement Village comprises of 262 apartments as well as supporting health and leisure facilities to over 55s from the Coventry area. Developed by The ExtraCare Charitable Trust, Earlsdon Park Village has been constructed on the site of the former Coventry Technical College on Earlsdon Road, just outside of Coventry city center.

Dryvit worked closely with the Architect, Nicol Thomas and the Design Team from Galliford Try to ensure the building maximized its potential as an architecturally prominent landmark. The most suitable system specification was identified that could meet the requirements set out by both Building Control, the client and NHBC. 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 Rail system with its expanded polystyrene (EPS) 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 the client and requirements for insurer approval for this residential retirement village.

Over 9,000m2 of Dryvit Outsulation Rail External Wall insulation (EWI) was installed over a lightweight steel frame (SFS) sheathed wall system incorporating a 140mm EPS insulation to achieve a U Value of 0.23 W/m2K. The system's drained cavity, also met with the NHBC requirements for framed substrates. The Outsulation Rail System incorporating a rasped EPS insulation also provided several key advantages during the application process that lead to high levels of aesthetic success to form the curved façade on the project. Completed February 2016.

Built to service the University of Edinburgh, the Holyrood Student Residence is in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic old town. When opened in 2016 the development provided over 1,100 new student rooms and enjoys an array of on-site student resource, amenity and social spaces.

Dryvit worked closely with the Architect, and the Design Team from Balfour Beatty Construction to meet the planning requirements for a project in such a historic and prominent site. As the building was more than 18 metres in height Dryvit's comprehensive BR135 and Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) fire approvals were instrumental in satisfying both building control and insurer requirements for the project, which allowed the cost effective expanded polystyrene (EPS) based Outsulation insulated render system to be specified for use on the scheme. Completed 2016.

The Dartford Heath Lane project formed part of a trial refrubsihment programme part funded by Innovate UK and overseen by PRP Architects on behalf of Dartford Borough Council. The circa 1920s houses were of solid brick construction, with render to second stories. Dryvit Drysulation external wall insulation (EWI) incoproating 150mm Low Lambda (grey) EPS insulation was used to fully clad and upgrade energy performance of the properties. Dryvit Sandpebble finish was used on the second floor areas and Dryvit's revolutionary NewBrick insulated slip system was used to the ground floor.

The residents, Client and design team are extremely happy with the outcome of the project and in particular the genuine look of the NewBrick finish.
