Kemper has provided its Stratex Warm Roof System at Yehudi Menuhin School’s new practice rooms scheme as part of a green roof build up. Amongst those who aspire to reach the highest standards of excellence in classical music, the Yehudi Menuhin School near Cobham in Surrey is almost as famous as the globally recognised violin virtuoso who established the school in 1964 and from whom it takes its name.
The BREEAM ‘Very Good’ practice rooms development has been constructed as a contemporary building that blends in with its leafy surroundings with a modular green roof and rainscreen cladding and timber. It also delivers high standards of thermal performance thanks to its Stratex warm roof system from Kemper System, and these sustainability credentials are further enhanced by its solar PV panels.
The flat roofed building has an 18mm ply roof with numerous rectangular roof lights and Miller Bourne specified the Kemper System warm roof having used the same combination of insulation boards and Kemperol cold applied liquid membranes on other projects. The design team worked closely with Kemper System’s technical department to determine the optimum specification for the roof that will provide a BBA accredited 25 year service life.
The practice rooms building is now fully operational, helping to nurture the next generation of musical talent and provide an informal outdoor venue at this very special school.
