Tennyson Wharf

Tennyson Wharf Care Home

Residents are enjoying seamless access to a recessed roof terrace, thanks to the ultra-slim design of the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System.

The Project

The 60-bed Tennyson Wharf Care Home was constructed by Castleoak and is located within the gated Burton Waters community.

The Barchester Healthcare facility offers specialist residential care supported with top class amenities including sensory gardens, a café and a Memory Lane Community area for dementia care.

Manor Roofing and Partnering Contractors Limited
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.
