To take advantage of the marina surroundings, the property has been designed with several spacious balconies and a small roof terrace which adjoins the third storey common room. As residents have a varied degree of mobility, accessibility was at the forefront of considerations during the design of the building, with care taken to ensure a level threshold on all doors to gardens and external spaces. To achieve this on the recessed top storey roof terrace, whilst keeping the area well insulated, the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System was specified.
The 40 mm Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System was installed on the terrace below Kingspan Thermaroof TR27 LPC/FM by Manor Roofing. Clear layouts were provided by our specialist technical team, ensuring that the required U-value could be achieved with a minimal construction thickness.
40 mm Kingspan OPTIM-R panels were also installed on the balconies by Partnering Contractors Limited. Matching thicknesses of Kingspan OPTIM-R flex infill strips were also laid around the edge of the terrace. A further layer of Kingspan Thermataper TT47 LPC/FM was then installed above this, providing a fall to the gutter. The balconies were then completed with marble tiles, providing a high class finish.
