1 Church Road

Name of project:  1 Church Road
Location:  Richmond
Project:  Office block
System:  PVC single ply
Product:  Armourplan SG Membrane, IKO EPS Carbon Insulation, Spectravap VCL
Main contractor:  Malone Roofing
Size:  1178m2

IKO’s Armourplan SG mid grey has been used on a refurbished and extended 1,178m2 roof space for an office development at 1 Church Road, Richmond.  The original building was three separate blocks which were linked together by stair cores. The stair cores were demolished and new structural steel links and extension to the southern elevation were introduced creating large open plan office areas totalling approximately 3000m2 over four floors.

Challenges to this project included retaining the existing facade, managing tight logistical deadlines, and meeting Network Rail’s stringent approvals process.  It was also essential to maintain Richmond Borough Council’s Emergency Control Centre in the ground floor and basement of one of the blocks as the project works proceeded.

Armourplan is rated A+ in the BREEAM Green Guide to Specification and is only available from SIG Design & Technology.  Armourplan can only be installed by an IKO Single Ply trained and licensed contractor.
