Copper Art roofing for Kentish conservation area

Copper Art roofing for Kentish conservation area

Flagon Copper Art PVC membrane with Standing Seam Profiles from SOPREMA was selected for the roof at the Beach Retreat, Kent.

Consisting of 7 luxury beachfront apartments with uninterrupted sea views, the Beach Retreat is positioned on the marina esplanade along the beautiful east Kent coastline. The roof design is of particular interest as Ramsgate seafront and Marina Esplanade is a designated Conservation Area and area of special architectural and historic interest.

The Beach Retreat roof is a waveform design inspired by the coastal surroundings, Soprema’s Copper Art membrane was specified in order to respect the planning requirements of the conservation area and associated regulations.

The selection of a single ply membrane manufactured with real copper particles, provides the aesthetic benefits of a traditional copper roof, but also the advantages of a modern waterproofing material, eliminating the risks associated with traditional roofing methods such as water ingress.

Flagon Copper Art PVC membrane with Standing Seam Profiles was selected in order to compliment the surrounding structures in this area of special historic interest. The Copper Art membrane not only takes on the patina of age, but also prevents the opportunist, in relation to an increasing number of thefts from traditional copper roofs.

Using a modern membrane in an innovative application such as this to achieve a traditional waterproofing aesthetic finish has provided the structure with a roof that has all of the performance benefits of a modern high performance roofing and waterproofing system.
