Altro XpressLay helps slash time & cost at new Cardiff school

-

Altro XpressLayTM safety flooring has provided a significant time and cost saving solution in the construction of the new St Teilo’s Church in Wales High School in Cardiff.

The new £26 million school was designed by architects Austin-Smith: Lord. It is a contemporary design, with classrooms clustered in blocks off a main central ‘street’.

Kate Smith, designer at Austin-Smith: Lord, said: “Due to the huge length of space of the school’s main street, the floor construction included many movement joints, which had a knock on effect to the movement requirements of the floor finish.

“The main contractor, Willmott Dixon, suggested that we look at Altro XpressLay as it can be laid straight to slab with no DPM and no fixing joints – creating a huge time and cost saving for the project. We were now confident we had a product that could meet this specific need.

“In addition to the main ‘street’, we specified Altro XpressLay for the break-out areas within each of the school’s blocks that come off the main street. We used a variety of different wedge-shaped colours of the product to delineate different areas. It looks very striking.-

“We also specified the product for corridors, some classrooms, and in the toilets and changing rooms in conjunction with Altro Walkway™ 20, which shares the same colour palette.”

Altro XpressLay is the world’s first adhesive-free, truly sustainable safety floor. It is installed using a tape system instead of adhesive, so can be installed without a surface DPM. It can be easily removed post-installation, re-used elsewhere and then at the end of its life be recycled.

The range boasts 41 colours, featuring bright and subtle, sparkle-free designs and decorative chipped options to give you a huge selection to choose from. Its shared colour palette with Altro Walkway 20 enables you to combine use of both ranges to suit the application. Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR™ Technology ensures the product stays look good long-term.

Like all Altro safety flooring products, Altro XpressLay offers sustained slip resistance for the lifetime of the product, keeping your risk of a slip or fall to just 1 in a million.

The Altro products at St Teilo’s were installed by CS Flooring, in Cardiff. Owner Anthony Mynett said: “This was the biggest Altro XpressLay installation we have ever done, at 6,250m2. It was a perfect example of how the product can be used to cut costs and accelerate a building programme without sacrificing quality, longevity or aesthetics.”

Anthony Mynett continued: “The beauty of installing Altro XpressLay is that it needs no adhesive, just its own weight alone, plus some strategically placed fixing tape. It’s quick, easy and clean. This means we saved days on the installation – probably cutting it by half. The entire process took us just 12 weeks.

-

“An added bonus with this product is that individual sections can easily be lifted and replaced if required, rather than having to take up the whole floor and re-adhere. There were some sceptics who didn’t believe that the product would be suitable for this application, but they have been proved wrong.”

CS Flooring also installed Altro DesignerTM 25 safety flooring and Altro Whiterock SatinsTM hygienic wall cladding in the school service and eating areas, using black and red colour schemes to denote raw and cooked food preparation areas.

Altro Designer 25 is a 2.5mm-thick, hard-wearing safety flooring which includes coloured quartz crystals in exciting base colours to enhance any interior scheme. -

Altro Whiterock Satins is a durable, grout-free, water-tight smooth wall cladding system designed for building environments that are required to meet strict hygiene standards. The panels provide a stain resistant, wipe-clean surface with no gaps or cracks for bacteria to hide in. It is extremely impact resistant and ideal for tough areas.

Chris Woodruff, Principal Surveyor at main contractor Willmott Dixon, commented on the use of Altro XpressLay on the St Teilo’s project: “It has proved to be a quality product that saved us time and cost on a project where we were able to provide betterment on the delivery programme.”

Total Glass supplies aluminium windows for Chester University’s science buildings

TG - Chester Uni B38 - 4

Aluminium windows and doors from Total Glass, a leading commercial aluminium manufacturer, have been installed on refurbished buildings acquired by the University of Chester at the former Shell Technology Centre at Thornton, near Ellesmere Port.

The Thornton site with its 48 buildings is now the Faculty of Engineering and Technology, representing the University’s most substantial acquisition in its 175-year history.

Working closely with main contractors Wynne Construction, Total Glass manufactured and installed 35 new aluminium windows in the front elevation of Building 38, a striking 1930s Art Deco building and now the site’s library.

The Sapa Crown 52 window system was specified to replicate the appearance of original steel windows in keeping with the historic building’s character for a more uniform and authentic look. The building, echoing the shape of an aircraft, also boasts an impressive internal cast steel double staircase.

The windows incorporate Sunguard SN70/37 solar-controlled glass to allow for maximum light transmission, while reducing solar gain and preventing excessive heat build-up. All the frames have an RAL 7021 black polyester powder-coated finish.

TG - Chester Uni B38 - 3

Sapa ST thermally-broken commercial entrance doors in a matching finish were also fitted in the curved front elevation, providing greater security and thermal-efficiency.

At nearby Building 58, Total Glass supplied and installed aluminium curtain walling manufactured using the Comar System. The solar-controlled glazing incorporated feature coloured vinyl obscuring the glass to create a letter ‘T’.

The Liverpool-based fabricator is also completing similar window replacement projects at three further buildings on the Thornton site, which are due to be completed by the end of the year.

Mobility kerb development project inspires new standard product line for Brett

BRE201417 Mobility Kerbs

A specialist mobility kerb that has been installed across regions of South Yorkshire has proven so successful that manufacturer Brett Landscaping, has added the product within its standard paving catalogue, thus making it freely available to national developers and local authorities alike.

The kerb, which features an upstand of 30mm between carriageway and footpath provides adequate channel drainage, and also aids mobility for wheelchair users and pushchairs; while a protruding lug at the rear of the kerb helps to hold it reliably in place.  This subsequently provides greater stability throughout the kerb’s lifetime.

Alpha Antique_Burnt Oak_Mobility Kerb_Charcoal_Loxley Road (6)

So far, the kerb style has been successfully put to use across four districts of South Yorkshire, predominantly throughout private development sites, which have and will be adopted by the local authority, as Jamie Gledhill, Northern Specification Manager at Brett Landscaping explains:

“In modifying this traditional style of kerb, we’ve developed a product that is extremely high quality, has proven capability and is also cost effective.  So far, it has been introduced across adoptable roads throughout Barnsley, Doncaster & Rotherham, with the most recent installation having been completed within a private housing development by Persimmon Homes.”

The Brett Landscaping kerb is also among the solutions used by Sheffield City Council Highways Adoption Group.

Jamie goes on to detail why the concept for developmental improvement was made: “We felt that introducing a nib at the rear of the kerbstone would be a progressive development; one which would be beneficial, not only to aid level setting, but actually increase the longevity of the stones; as a more stable installation is far less likely to be affected by potential vehicular impact.”

He explains that the success of and demand for, the re-designed kerb in South Yorkshire has spurred Brett Landscaping’s impetus to feature the adapted product within its standard catalogue, and continues:

“In reconfiguring this kerb solution to better mobility solutions, we have developed a more appropriate option than some of our alternative block paving kerb units, namely due to the unique rear lug element that benefits installation wherever mobility access is required. Our success in South Yorkshire has given us confidence that it is, of course, appropriate for use anywhere in the country.

“Because its design makes it eminently suitable for so many applications we’ve now decided to roll the mobility kerb out into our standard Commercial Range catalogue, enabling many more contractors to gain from the improvements we’ve made in this vital area of mobility access.”

Specifying Seamless Resin Terrazzo CPD Seminar

New-CPD-PR-Header-2

Flowcrete UK is delighted to announce the launch of its brand new ‘Specifying Seamless Resin Terrazzo’ RIBA approved CPD Seminar.

Architects looking to earn CPD points while learning more about the science and beauty of terrazzo flooring can contact Flowcrete UK now to book their place on this informative and beneficial educational opportunity.

The fascinating new seminar provides an in depth background into the traditional history of terrazzo, from all the way back in 9000BC when lime and clay based terrazzo was used in Neolithic structures, right through to the present day.

Flowcrete UK’s Marketing Manager, Ian Jones, said: “Our new seminar has been created to provide architects with a greater understanding of the nature of seamless resin terrazzo flooring – including what systems are available to the market, how they differ to alternative materials and the practicalities of installation and maintenance.

“This type of flooring is becoming an increasingly popular choice within large-scale commercial venues thanks to its many aesthetic and functional properties. This seminar is a great way for industry professionals to ensure that they stay ahead of the curve when it comes to decorative hard floor coverings.”

New-CPD-PR-Header-3

During the seminar, a resin flooring expert will cover the many benefits of using seamless terrazzo systems compared to out-dated traditional tiles. Participants will be provided with an in-depth analysis of the various application processes and techniques and they will also learn about the benefits and lifecycle implications of different materials.

Flowcrete UK’s latest CPD seminar will also identify the most appropriate cleaning methods to ensure a prolonged life span for seamless terrazzo flooring systems, helping clients to get the most out of their investment in the long-term.

Seamless resin terrazzo is renowned for delivering the ultimate in design flexibility, with its unlimited colour pallet able to provide a unique and tailored finish for every project.

New-CPD-PR-Header-5

The vast versatility of the material means it can be precast for use on stair treads and risers as well as for wall coving. Not to mention that with the correct cleaning procedures seamless terrazzo can offer a lifecycle as long as the building itself, making it a sound investment for the future.

Terrazzo systems also have a low slip potential in accordance with HSE and UKSRG guidelines, making them a safer option for public places. As well as the fact that the non-porosity of seamless terrazzo eliminates microbial growth and can be used to improve the indoor environmental air quality of a structure.

Available across the UK and Ireland, the new RIBA approved seminar lasts for between 45-60 minutes and all attendees are invited to help themselves to a complimentary buffet or light refreshments.

25 years of arched frames and Force 8 is still ahead of the curve

Force8

In an industry first, Stockport-based VEKA fabricator Force 8 is now able to offer its revolutionary seamless arched frames, nationwide, with a 48 hour turnaround.

Managing Director Dennis Sumner pioneered frame bending technology around 25 years ago, realising that the standard industry practice of welding curved sections of profile together to create an arch jeopardised the frame’s integrity as well as affecting its aesthetic appearance.

“When we first looked at profile bending as a business opportunity we wanted to be the best” Dennis comments. “Developing the one-piece bend was not an easy option which is probably why, even today, none of our competitors have attempted anything similar. It makes sense that an unbroken system retains its strength – the only time we have a weld on a profile bend is on a completely circular window.”

All the tooling that family-run Force 8 uses for bending is specifically calibrated for high-spec VEKA profile, allowing the company to offer the same extensive guarantees on its arched frames as on its other VEKA-based products. Dennis continues: “Our arched frames are fully reinforced and, as you would expect from Force 8, conform to all the latest building regulations including the mandatory CE Markings required on all replacement frames and windows.”

Making a significant investment in technology has facilitated Force 8’s ability to supply arched frames, nationwide, within 48 hours. Dennis explains: “Previously, the seamless bending process was very time consuming, requiring hardboard or MDF jigs as the template for the curve. With our new machines and software we have a system so accurate that the profile can be cut at the same time as the bending process is taking place, eliminating the need to check fitting and effectively halving the production time. With no need for a template, all we need from customers is the technical details in an email.”

Colin Torley, Sales and Marketing Director for The VEKA UK Group, praised Force 8 for maximising the potential of VEKA’s profile: “What Dennis has achieved with Force 8’s arched frames is phenomenal. He saw the potential for his business in bending PVC-U profile and knew that, with the VEKA name behind him, his customers would see the benefits too. Full credit to Force 8 for identifying a niche in a sprawling industry and truly making it its own – we can’t wait to see what their next innovation will be.”

Dennis concludes: “Arched frames have always been one of our core products and, while we have strived to streamline production and reduce lead times, our priority has always been quality. That’s why we’re committed to using VEKA profile – with 25 successful year’s experience and thousands of satisfied commercial and residential customers, why would we change? We will continue to innovate and push the boundaries as we believe in evolution – after all, if you don’t evolve, you become extinct!”

Success for the Midlands Construction Summit – Building Ideas for a Brighter Future

MCS Logo

The Midlands Construction Summit – held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham – was declared a great success, seeing over 300 innovators, leaders, supply chain specialists and high level individuals, all operating in the various key construction sectors, gathering together to discuss the Construction 2025 Industrial Strategy.

The event was run by the Built Environment Hub which is a not-for-profit organisation owned by its members – an association of Midlands regional businesses. The idea behind the Midlands Construction Summit was to support and advance the Midlands construction sector through collaboration, knowledge sharing, networking and engaging with government and major public sector bodies, coalescing around the Construction 2025 Strategy.

The Summit took the form of a combined conference and exhibition with a series of interactive workshops aimed to address the key themes of the Strategy, including energy efficiency, supply-chain development, offsite construction, BIM, public sector investment and academic research.

David Bucknall OBE, Chairman of the Built Environment Hub commented: “Events like the Midlands Construction Summit are crucial for improving and impacting the industry. Bringing such a wide range professionals together under one roof helps to generate new ideas and discussions that will ultimately achieve growth across all sectors. Overall there was a really positive response from both delegates and exhibitors, putting the Midlands ahead of the game for the future.”

One of the key discussions throughout the day included the sharing of ideas over ways in which to get young people involved in the industry – with new methods to recruit and train staff. There was also a focus on maximising technology options in order to enhance sustainability – with a strong emphasis on making Building Information Modelling (BIM) relevant across the entire industry and promoting and encouraging offsite construction.

Allan Wilén, Economic Director of Glenigan, stated: “There have been some positive industry trends in recent years, including time predictability and cost certainty, as well as encouraging results in environmental performance – the industry is really delivering on this front with energy usage, water usage and minimal waste on site. Overall there is a positive picture going forward but there will be future challenges. Now is time to take stock and figure out how to drive forward.”

The key note speaker for the event was Peter Hansford, UK Government Chief Construction advisor, who spoke about improving working conditions – with the vision of setting a benchmark over other industries, as well as providing and recruiting staff with specialist skills and getting industry and academia to work together. The presentation also highlighted advances in technology helping the recognition of performance and energy efficiency.

Peter Hansford, Government Chief Construction Advisor

Peter Hansford commented: “These regional events run by organisations like Built Environment Hub are really important.  In my role I could easily spend all my time around Westminster but is very important that I get out and meet the regional industry. This Midlands event has Construction 2025 running all through it – that’s both amazing and heartening. I was pleased to hear Constructing Excellence being promoted as the single body to move the whole industry toward a collaborative approach to achieving Construction 2025’s aspirations”

The Built Environment Hub has a strong reputation in the Midlands, boasting over 150 members and hosting a range of high-calibre events and networking opportunities such as the Midlands Construction Summit and the Celebrating Construction Awards.

Diespeker: specialist skills in resin based terrazzo for student campus

Students at the University of Westminster’s Marylebone Campus may not appreciate the feat of ingenuity they walk on every day. The floor of the refurbished campus has been created from resin based terrazzo, one of the most durable materials currently available.

18m ramp with stairs

Resin based terrazzo originally became popular within major pharmaceutical companies and blue chip businesses requiring a hygienic manufacturing environment. This material can be laid as a single piece over a large area and with few joints, offering the major benefit of being relatively easy to keep clean.

The requirement at Marylebone Campus was the flooring element of a project undertaken by main contractor Vinci Construction – the conversion of an external courtyard into an internal area that includes a library, café, study section and general circulation area. Flowcrete supplied its highly decorative epoxy resin floor finish, Mondéco Crystal Ice, an 8mm blend of mirrored and clear glass chippings offering durability with an anti-slip and scratch resistant profile.

Installation of the resin floor was undertaken by London specialist Resin Flooring UK. The floor totalled approximately 2200m² and although the surface is not completely joint-free due to intersection between substrates, areas of up to 1000m² are seamless.

A number of detailed elements of the installation required the niche skills of London marble and terrazzo expert, Diespeker. These included the treads and risers for a low gradient ramp of almost 18m in length, an unusual design combining slope and steps; as the ramp height increases, stairs begin to form on the side of the ramp. This is believed to be the first of its kind, presenting a challenge for Diespeker’s installation team.

Diespeker was also responsible for the skirting, wall strings and creation of half-moon shapes that were used in pairs to provide skirting around circular columns of around 1.5 meters circumference. The resin based terrazzo for these elements was pre-polished at Diespeker’s Bermondsey factory, while the main flooring was polished by Resin Flooring UK’s floor grinding machines to achieve the required smooth and glossy finish.

Skirting 2

The flooring installation took a total of four months with around eight stages requiring work to be carried out on consecutive days to ensure quality. Diespeker’s skills were called on during the four weeks towards the end of the project, after the main floor had been installed.

Steve Aspinall from Resin Flooring UK says: “We were delighted when we found Diespeker right on our doorstep, and were so pleased with the company’s work at the University campus that we are continuing to work with them on all our upcoming resin flooring projects.”

Although resin based terrazzo is relatively expensive flooring, the cost is balanced by the durability and easy-to-clean finish. With correct maintenance, the system can last in excess of 25 years.
