EnviroBuild is proud to announce that a contract has been signed with Taylor Wimpey for the use of their innovative 150 Aqua Channel aluminium decking in the refurbishment of the balconies at Latham’s Yard.
Located in London, the aim of the refurbishment project is to adhere to the updated legislation following the Grenfell Tower fire (The Building (Amendment) Regulations 2018 (S.I. 2018/ 1230) legislation). With a Class-A fire resistance rating, EnviroBuild’s latest aluminium decking material passes all of the stringent safety tests with no issue. The decking uses a simple clipless system for ease of installation, as well as featuring a passive water drainage system and being low-slip.
The multi-phase project will see no less than 10 high-rise apartment buildings being fitted with EnviroBuild’s aluminium deck boards, for a total of around 4,000 m2 of material. Anthracite 7016 was chosen as the colour by PRP Architects, with KDD Construction hired as subcontractors.
As their name suggests, EnviroBuild’s main goal is to be as environmentally sustainable as possible whilst maintaining a high-quality range of products for their customers. Made entirely from aluminium, 150 Aqua Channel decking is fully recyclable and there is an option to purchase aluminium manufactured using entirely renewable energy, lowering the carbon intensity of the product by 70%.
Dr Aidan Bell, spokesperson for EnviroBuild, said of the matter, “We’re delighted that Taylor Wimpey has opted for the look and feel of our Aqua Channel board. We are pleased to be working with them on such an important project and hope to collaborate more with them in the future”.
More and more construction companies are starting to see the merits and ethical viability of choosing more environmentally friendly materials in their projects, so it is no wonder that EnviroBuild continues to be sought for larger scale building and refurbishment projects such as at Latham’s Yard.
With up to 30 years of warranty, EnviroBuild’s 150 Aqua Channel aluminium decking is available for both personal and commercial use. It is possible to choose between two variations, for steel beam and flat roof installations respectively.
