Baggy House - Devon

Category: Case study
Written by Super User

This private residence is a leading contemporary design by Hudson Architects and is located on an exposed cliff face on the Devonshire coast. The house has become one of the best-known and loved modern private houses in the UK. Though now around two decades old, so many of the principles developed for the house continue to be central to Hudson's approach to building and the house remains a key project in their practice's portfolio. 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.

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.

Design and Construction of the 100,000 square foot extension for the Silverburn shopping Centre in Glasgow is now complete. The £20 million leisure extension is anchored by a 14-screen Cineworld and features 11 new restaurants. Works also comprised the demolition of the last remaining, dilapidated section of the former Pollok Centre prior to the construction of the new facilities.

Dryvit worked closely with the Architect and the Design Team from Grahams to ensure the most suitable system specification was found that could meet the stringent requirements set out by both building control and the client, such as fire performance. 1,200 m2 of Dryvit's Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) system was installed directly onto a lightweight steel frame and sheathing board substrate. Dryvit's comprehensive Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) fire approvals were instrumental in satisfying 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.

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.

Mann Island is an iconic development on a pivotal site on Liverpool’s waterfront between the Pier Head and the Albert Dock. Countryside and joint venture partners Neptune Developments Ltd have developed the £120 million 'Mann Island' in Liverpool City Centre. The pivotal site rests between the Pier Head and the Albert Dock and is a vibrant waterfront destination comprising dockside cafés and restaurants, shops, public spaces, a new exhibition venue, 376 apartments and 140,000 sq ft of high quality commercial office space. The visually striking design, by award winning architects Broadway Malyan, has been conceived to frame and preserve key views of The Three Graces. It is enlivening and reclaiming the site of former private business premises and is reconnecting the City Centre to The Pier Head and the new Museum of Liverpool. 

Dryvit ACR 200 anti-crack render system was applied over Cement Board MD incorporating PMRB Sandpebble in China White in the residential Area, the brief was to incorporate a bright modern contemporary look to the internal courtyard apartments. The architect wanted a polymer modified anti crack render which incorporated the PMRB finish, this was chosen due to its Dirt Pick Up Resistant properties. 7000m2 Dryvit ACR 200 over Cement MD installed.
