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 Fine 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.

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.

Part of the Beswick Community Hub master plan, Connell Sixth-Form College will accommodate 600 students (16 to 19-year-olds). The project has been approved and is being funded by the Department for Education, and the college will be part of the Bright Futures Educational Trust

Dryvit worked closely with the Architect, Aedas, and the Design Team from Laing O Rourke to ensure the building maximized its potential as an architecturally prominent landmark. The most suitable system specification was identified to meet the requirements set out by both Building Control and the client.

Building Control stipulated that as this is an education building the chosen cladding system had to satisfy their stringent requirements for fire performance. As the Dryvit Outsulation Plus system with its expanded polystyrene (EPS) held the relevant LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) certification relevant for a steel frame and solid substrate it was well placed to meet the client and requirements for insurer approval for this mixed use development. This system also satisfied the thermal performance required for the project of .21W/m2K.

A moisture drained system was also specified to meet the architect’s robust specification and finished with Dryvit’s Sandpebble Texture in China White, which incorporated the PMRB finish. This was chosen for its Proven Mildew and Dirt Pick up Resistant properties.

King Edwards Quay, Colchester is Smart-Student Living rented accommodation which offers students high quality shared accommodation with easy access to Essex university and Colchester town centre. The development comprises 779 bedrooms across eight floors with a shop, restaurant and spacious communal areas both internally and externally on the lower levels. 

7500m2 of Dryvit Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) system was specified incorporating, 190mm expanded polystyrene (EPS) installed over prefabricated pods. Ashlar grooves were cut into the EPS to satisfy the local planners requirements for a panelised system. 

Being a requirement of the insurers for student accommodation Dryvit's comprehensive fire approvals from the Loss Prevention Board Certification (LPCP) and LPS 1581 were instrumental in the specification of the expanded polystyrene (EPS) based insulated render system.

The Rock, Bury is a mixed use retail and residential scheme comprising over 500,000 ft2 of retail accommodation within five separate buildings in Bury Town centre. The scheme included ‘anchor’ department stores for both Debenhams & Marks and Spencer, over sixty other retail units, a 10 screen cinema, a 24 lane bowling and entertainment centre, 8 restaurant units, over four hundred residential apartments and a 1,250 space multi storey car park.

Dryvit worked closely with the Architect, BDP, and the Design Team from Laing O Rourke 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 and 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 and solid substrate it was well placed to meet the client and requirements for insurer approval for this mixed use development. This system also satisfied the thermal performance required for the project of .21W/m2K, Sandpebble Texture finish in a Moonlight Grey which incorporated the PMRB finish this was chosen due to its proven Mildew and Dirt pick up resistant properties.
