Green roof for The British Horse Society

Green roof for The British Horse Society

IKO Polymeric’ has provided a new roof for the British Horse Society in Warwickshire. Under the patronage of the Queen, The British Horse Society represents the interests of the 4.3 million people who ride horses or drive horse-drawn vehicles and represents the gold standard for the equestrian industry.

The contract was very challenging due to the circular building design with a circular opening in the middle with the oak tree dating back to BC. Attention was foremost not to affect the life of the tree.

A TPE Spectraplan SM120 Light Grey membrane was installed loose laid as to avoid contaminants entering the water which the tree feeds from. Hodge Single Ply constructed the roof from the concrete slab upwards, with a 1 meter wide perimeter built from 18mm plywood on a timber frame mounted on top of the steel to create the circular edge feature.

The new building, besides offering staff a more comfortable working environment, is far more energy efficient than their previous HQ building.
