A £23 million regeneration project in Plymouth by English Cities Fund (ECF) has seen further transformation as it adds to the eastern side of the historic former docks at Millbay and continues its distinctive contemporary character.
The development, known as Marina Village, creates 137 much-needed affordable new homes consisting of 117 apartments and 20 maisonettes across three blocks over-looking the King Point Marina and the Plymouth Sound with breath-taking views across the water to Cornwall.
Utilising the successful collaboration with Galliford Try Partnerships, C&P Plastering and RCM Ltd, SPSenvirowall’s TS Rail System was recommended for its suitability for buildings over 18 meters.
BBA certification and fully fire tested, accompanying the TS Rail System, 200mm EPS was recommended to provide a thermally efficient u-value calculation of 0.13w/m2k while a white 2.0mm Enviromin was specified to produce the striking façade and to complement RCM’s Supertech Cladding, adding variety to the façades of the building.
The development at Millbay makes the most of its coastal location and by specifying Enviromin with its highly weather-resistant, high-performance cross-linked technology, the contemporary building can expect excellent façade protection. Additionally, it is quick to apply with only the addition of water to mix on-site. A collaboration of this type provides the ability by SPSenvirowall and RCM, both part of the Benx Group, to offer combined logistics resulting in just-in-time deliveries, greater flexibility and cost savings to the client.
