Princesshay Shopping Centre, Exeter

Princesshay Shopping Centre, Exeter

Sika Sarnafil

The £230m Princesshay Shopping Centre, in Exeter, officially opened to the public in September 2007, as part of the city’s biggest ever regeneration project, with over 70 shops, cafés and restaurants. The roof of the centre, installed when the building was constructed, had caused various problems throughout its life. A Sarnabar system in Lead Grey was chosen, with a T fleece between the composite deck and the mechanically fastened Sarnafil S327-18EL membrane. On a smaller roof with a plywood deck, Sarnafil G410-ELF, an adhered system with a fleece backing, was specified.
Megapad Pedestals lifting terrace to window level on period building

Megapad Pedestals lifting terrace to window level on period building

Wallbarn Ltd

The customer wanted to build a deck on the first storey of a period building in Chicago The windows opening out on to the roof were positioned considerably higher than the rooftop itself, which meant that the structure deployed to support the deck would also need to raise it up almost a metre to meet the threshold. We recommended a number of our heavy-duty Megapads ranging from 711mm to 876mm to account for the gradual fall in the roof. The customer chose not to envelope the pedestals because he liked the industrial look created, in keeping with downtown Chicago.
Natural stone paving using pedestals - Douglas, Isle of Man

Natural stone paving using pedestals - Douglas, Isle of Man

Wallbarn Ltd

This was a large roof terrace on a private domestic project. The area was flooded and had needed to be re-laid with waterproofing and a significant fall constructed into the deck to allow the often considerable amounts of rainwater to escape the roof deck. The contractor asked Wallbarn for a suitable but cost effective solution so we recommended Wallbarn 9mm rubber supports along with levelling shims. The area was re-waterproofed in the inverted waterproofing method, the membrane being covered with rigid insulation boards and a loose laid geotextile fabric to act as a separation layer .

Google HQ King's Cross

Google HQ King's Cross

Buzon UK Ltd

The current Google HQ, with vast external floor space over several levels. The decking is a bespoke solid section 230 x 30mm composite, commissioned for this site. All fixings are hidden, giving a seamless look to the terraces, and clean lines. The main terrace areas are level and by using the DPH slope correction system, the wheelchair access ramps were easily achieved. A clever feature; the BM Unit travels over the decking, hiding the steel rails below. This enlarges the overall usable terrace space considerably, and gives uninterrupted views from the entire terrace.
Balance self-levelling pedestals provide the solution to difficult paving scheme

Balance self-levelling pedestals provide the solution to difficult paving scheme

Wallbarn Ltd

Wallbarn worked with a specialist tile installer, working on a new-build in Carmarthenshire. Initially 600mm deep concrete screed was used for a base, but the weight bent the lintels. The concrete had to be broken out and the whole deck repaired. The installation was challenging with falls over 250mm across the deck. ‘Balance’ self-levelling adjustable pedestals provided the answer. Using bespoke pedestal planning software, MegaPro, the Wallbarn service team was able to work out the exact quantity and height of pedestals required for the scheme, colour-coded on the drawing, guiding installers on where to place each pedestal.

2-6 Cannon Street, London

2-6 Cannon Street, London

Buzon UK Ltd

2-6 Cannon Street is a high-end new build commercial office building located in the City. This new-build includes an unusual shaped roof which has been designed to create a stunning exterior roof terrace. Buzon UK were commissioned to supply and install the DPH pedestal system to support GRAD decking and rail systems. This was a challenging project as steel planters were located in the middle of the roof terrace so the installation of the adjustable support pedestals had to be carried out around the planters. Timber decked steps and ramps were also part of the terrace design.

iDecking walkway in high profile modern style home

iDecking walkway in high profile modern style home

Wallbarn Ltd

The client was looking to replace an old 67 metre long wooden walkway surrounding a pool. Their contractor recommended the Decking system due to the low profile aluminium substructure and moisture-proof composite boards which require far less ongoing maintenance. The installer removed the old decking to reveal the sub base, then used Wallbarn’s heavy duty MegaPad pedestals to underpin the iDecking rail system. Our proposed laying pattern complemented the architect’s original design, drawing the eye down the length of the walkway. The entire job took two weeks to complete. The client is delighted with the results.

Adjustable Paving Supports - Woodbury Close, Finsbury Park

Adjustable Paving Supports - Woodbury Close, Finsbury Park

Wallbarn Ltd

ASP pedestals were chosen by the waterproofing contractor to suspend paving slabs on residential balconies above an inverted waterproofing system on a luxury development. Decks were laid to falls in many different directions creating different heights and angles. Paving needed to be flat across the falling deck and slabs needed to ballast the insulation. Telescopic stems easily adjust the height whilst the slab is in place, making installation fast and easy. Positioning lugs create uniform paving lines automatically. Heavy load tolerances and durability over time and large temperature ranges, up to Minus 40° C, gives Wallbarn ASPs the edge competitors.
iDecking Project - Finchampstead, Berkshire

iDecking Project - Finchampstead, Berkshire

Wallbarn Ltd

This 115m² project was a large luxury new-build. The decking required two distinct build-up methods around the house. One section was on a waterproofing membrane, the other on a steel framed walkway. Adjustable support pedestals were loose-laid onto the membrane. iDecking aluminium rail system was set onto the pedestals and EasyClick boards were clicked into place. Pedestals lifted the decking structure off the membrane allowing free drainage and creating a level surface on the falling roof. Aluminium rails were mechanically fixed to the steel structure and the whole terrace was set to one, seamless level wrapping around the house.
Huubie Build

Huubie Build

Marley Ltd

Marley CitiDeck® timber decking is the perfect accompaniment to the whimsical treehouse designs and imaginative play structures made by Huubie Build. Huubie Build specialises in imaginative play and natural fun, creating whimsical and unique treehouses and play structures – and they use Marley CitiDeck® to ensure safety and inclusivity. CitiDeck® timber decking used for imaginative play  With a focus on imaginative play and natural fun, Huubie Build has gained a reputation for creating unique play areas and treehouses for residential, commercial, and educational settings. The structures are works of art with a spirit of playfulness and deliberate “wonkiness” that give a sense of fairy-tale magic. But they’re also carefully designed for safety – and to help ensure the safety of the children and adults who use these structures, CitiDeck® anti-slip timber decking is the flooring of choice. “The look of pure joy on faces when they are carried away in fun activities is something that ignites my passion,” explains Paul Prentice, founder of Huubie Build. He started the company with an aim to get kids and their grown-ups more active and engaged in the outdoors. He wants to change attitudes about active play and its proven values, creating inclusivity so that everyone can enjoy the physical and mental benefits of imaginative outdoor play.Anti-slip decking: safety firstSafety is essential, and Huubie Build’s play structures are designed to help ensure the wellbeing of those who use them. Surfacing is a big part of this, and various materials are used – from rubber to timber – depending on the situation.  For example, a soft landing under a climbing frame typically calls for rubber safety surfacing. Meanwhile, decking, platforms, ramps and stairs all require slip-resistant textures and a beautiful timber finish that blends in with the rest of the wooden structure – and for this, Paul uses Marley’s CitiDeck® timber decking. CitiDeck® is a non-slip timber deck board with a smooth profile and two-non-slip inserts of white-coloured aggregate. It has been independently tested and achieved average pendulum test values (PTVs) of 61 when wet and 73 when dry. These results are significantly higher than the minimum PTV of 36 required for a decking product to be called non-slip. Safety is also essential for creating inclusive play environments that all children can use. Huubie Build has experience in designing and building for SEND applications. Their timber play structures are perfect for creating fun, stimulating experiences for those with special or additional needs, and the CitiDeck® anti-slip decking provides an extra sense of security. Paul explains further “After feeling the safety underfoot, customers have all said that CitiDeck® was the right choice,” he says. “It also means fewer risk assessment worries for teachers”, he adds. And children notice the difference too: “Even kids feel the safety underfoot,” he explains, even when it’s wet, and this encourages them to run, jump and play more freely. Natural and sustainableThe style of a Huubie Build treehouse is one of natural whimsy combined with expert craftsmanship. The use of natural timber is a big part of this, and the finished structures blend in with their surroundings in an organic way. Some intentionally topsy-turvy details give the treehouses unique character. “I’ve been told I ‘do wonky well’,” Paul laughs, explaining that he works with many beautiful timber products – first cuts of cedar with the bark still visible, black locust, Robinia and acacia – to achieve his design aspirations. He says that CitiDeck® timber decking fits in with his architectural vision perfectly: “It reminds me of old millboard and blends in well with the products we build.” Sustainability is also a key consideration. “It’s more than just a word to us; it’s a true belief in what we’re doing,” Paul says. The company has won several awards for sustainable practices. They use sustainable sources wherever possible and use PEFC and FSC-certified timber.  Reducing waste is also a priority, and they have even designed Block Bots – charming wood and rope robot toys made from leftover cuttings – to make the most of the materials they use.  Marley’s CitiDeck® anti-slip decking is manufactured from European redwood, which is sourced from sustainable and ethical suppliers. Marley is certified to both FSC and PEFC chain of custody schemes; we are also a member of the Timber Trade Federation, and all timber meets both CPET and EUTR directives.

Weight saving structural concrete for hotel rooftop extension

Weight saving structural concrete for hotel rooftop extension

Tarmac

The challenge was to construct a roof top extension on top of the luxury hotel NOBU in Shoreditch. The plan was to add an additional 1 storey of hotel rooms, suites, dining areas and open terraces that would replace the existing planted roof. The chosen solution was Tarmac Toplight C lightweight structural concrete in a pump mix with the addition of steel fibres, ensuring maximum weight loss of 35% with no compromise on structural concrete performance.By adding steel fibres into the lightweight mix the composite metal deck system could be installed without the need for traditional expensive and slow steel reinforcement across the deck. The use of lightweight concrete, furthermore, reduced the load by 35% which meant the existing structure did not need to be reinforced or under pinned. The construction programme time was also reduced considerably.

Natural beauty, easy to maintain and sustainable quality– UPM ProFi Piazza, Californian Oak

Natural beauty, easy to maintain and sustainable quality– UPM ProFi Piazza, Californian Oak

UPM Biocomposites

Natural beauty, easy to maintain and sustainable quality were the key factors for one family’s decking choice – UPM ProFi Piazza, Californian OakSaija and Petri Nylund and their two grown up children were already experienced home builders. As their family situation and needs have changed, they decided to build a new home. Once again they planned a turn-key solution: this time a stylish and modern white house built for them by the contractor Hevi-kivitalot as part of 2020’s Tuusula Housing Fair.Their brief for the design of both exterior and interior living areas of the house was very clear: they wanted to have high quality, ageless materials, with a hint of everyday luxury. Colours should be natural and neutral. The internal and external living areas should be seamlessly joined together.There are three different balconies or outdoor deckings, each with a different function. One balcony opens out from the master bedroom. The second balcony, a rooftop terrace with an outdoor jacuzzi, lies next to the sauna and bathroom. The third and main decking area opens out directly from the kitchen and living room and features a partly glazed area with a dining table. Natural light floods into this perfect merging of the indoor and outdoor living areas.The interior of the house was created by the interior designer Laura Seppänen, who also found the decking material, UPM ProFi Piazza in Californian Oak colour. “We immediately liked the natural look of this material, with its modern woodgrain design and texture. The neutral “Californian Oak” colour also matched well with the pure white colour of the house and the other colour choices we have made elsewhere in our new home.” explained Petri Nylund, father of the family. “I especially appreciate that it is very easy to clean and maintain – only periodically washing is needed”, said his wife Saija Nylund. “It also feels comfortable and safe with bare feet. An additional advantage is that it’s made with a high recycled content – we prefer to choose materials which are also environmentally friendly”, she continues. “In general, we are very pleased with our new home and also all of the outdoor areas”, the couple says together.This summer, the whole Nylund family are enjoying their first summer in their new home, especially the long sunny days and warm evenings in their extended outdoor living room, made with UPM ProFi Piazza decking.
The Four Sisters, Northumberland

The Four Sisters, Northumberland

ecodek

Situated in the heart of Northumberland, The Four Sisters is a unique building development comprising of four property rentals, named after the owners’ four daughters – Poppy, Lucy, Romilly & Lydia. Poppy, the largest of the four cottages, features a truly stunning roof terrace in which the Adek Comfort Grip 295 system has become a perfect addition. The clean lines, sleek appearance and concealed fixings of the Adek system reflects the trends of modern building design, which contrasts beautifully with the idyllic turret of the castle. The extra wide 295mm board meant that installation time was dramatically reduced – an important factor when renovating a holiday home, with the aspiration of letting the property in readiness for Spring/Summer. Roy Dods, owner of The Four Sisters commented: “We have been extremely impressed with the level of service from Adek from start to finish. We decided to go for the aluminium decking rather than composite due to its stylish modern appearance which doesn’t compromise the decks overall durability. It was important to us that we found a decking system that was friendly underfoot, and therefore our guests could fully relax in the outdoor space that we have created. The Adek system certainly achieves that! We have harsh winters here in Northumberland, and peace of mind that the system requires minimal maintenance and provides good grip in the wet, as well as the dry, is an added bonus!”

Bean Coffee & Cocktails, Liverpool

ecodek

Like so many other businesses in the hospitality sector, Bean Coffee and Cocktails, St Pauls Square in Liverpool, has faced numerous challenges over the past 18 months due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The company has had to adapt and adjust its offering in line with social distancing regulations, whilst also keeping customers happy and ensuring the continuation of its business. One way it has achieved this is through the refurbishment of its outside area, using Ecodek’s composite decking boards to create a beautiful, sustainable space for patrons now and in the future. Leah Roberts, Community Manager at Bean Coffee, explains why Ecodek’s sustainable decking was chosen over its competitors: "With early 2021 lockdown restrictions meaning we could only offer customers outside seating, we realised we needed to give our outside area at Bean Coffee and Cocktails, St Pauls Square an upgrade. We wanted to create a cosy outdoor area that was both aesthetic and durable for all seasons. “We chose Ecodek primarily because sustainability is a very important part of our ethos here at Bean Coffee. We are proud of the steps we have taken over the past few years to ensure we are becoming more conscious about our environmental impact. With Ecodek being relatively local and the products being recycled, recyclable and carbon negative it just really made sense to us to choose them. “We were extremely pleased with all aspects of customer service with Ecodek, it was seamless from the initial enquiry to the delivery. The sales team were very informative and helpful, and the delivery guy couldn’t have been more accommodating onsite!” continues Leah. Bean Coffee selected our Heritage composite decking, in slate grey, for the renovation. Slip resistant, splinter free, and low maintenance, these sustainable decking boards are the perfect product for creating outdoor seating areas in bars, cafes and restaurants, where safety is paramount. However, providing customers with an attractive, comfortable, and relaxing environment is also a priority. The modern, yet timeless, slate grey Heritage decking boards provide this unique balance of safety and beauty, combined with longevity and ease of upkeep – a combination Bean Coffee and Cocktails is extremely happy with, as Leah concludes: “The finished product is amazing; we are very happy with how it has turned out! We added some evergreen and seasonal plants to the planters and put some parasols with heaters in and it really has made the space look incredible! Our customers were pretty blown away with the transformation as well and are enjoying the new space we have created."
