Shipley – New Build : Insulated Render System

Problem

The designers of a new 6-storey block of flats were seeking a solution to form a feature decorative gable panel at apposing ends of a flat roof. The panels must have low heat loss and be of similar colour to the adjacent 18th century mill buildings to meet local planning requirements. The proposed system would abutt pitched faced stone return walls that form part of the external elevations of the building.

Solution

Bosa in conjunction with Weber Building Solutions visited site to assess the parameters required and take on any particular design elements. The solution proposed was weber.therm XM external render system utilising 60mm thick insulation against a Pyrok board. The system provides a rapid access solution, minimising heat loss and loading on the building. The installed system is warranted by Weber and guaranteed by Bosa to meet the demands of the building insurers
