Sandbanks Dorset has become a popular location for the rich and famous and this one-time sand-dune shanty town is now being described as the UK's answer to Monte Carlo. With its pristine golden sand beaches and its Mediterranean like climate, it has quickly established itself as a millionaires playground. Sandbanks Court apartments are situated within the expensive up-market area of this coastal peninsular and enjoy spectacular panoramic views across the sea.
A green roof system was selected for this project as the client required a roof that would complement and accommodate the step in levels to follow timber decking lines to the 55m² roof terrace areas.
IKO Single Plys Spectraplan SM120 light grey single ply waterproofing system was overlaid to the existing roof and newly built sun rooms, ready to receive a green roof system. Offering exceptional mechanical strength, enhanced UV stability and long term waterproofing performance, the Spectraplan TPE system offers the most advanced polymer technology available in the industry. Safe, reliable welding characteristics make it the material of choice for complex roof structures and those requiring rapid installation.
The external roof area has proved a real success with its users and they can now enjoy the new found lease of life to their rooftop with a view of the Dorset Coastline.
Green roofs offer multiple benefits for both the environment and the building occupants including, improved air quality and aesthetic appearance, better thermal and acoustic performance and increased roof life expectancy. These extensive systems can be installed on a wide range of buildings, including schools, houses and commercial offices.
Spectraplan is only available in the UK from SIG Design & Technology and can only be installed by an IKO Single Ply trained and licensed contractor.
