Thie apartment building in Westbourne had huge structural issues with the existing terrace areas dropping and the budling having to be closed to the residents throughout the works.

The main builder on the project completed the structural work, and we came in to install the new terrace warm roofs that stretched around the whole circumference of the property. Due to height limits for the new insulation on the existing door thresholds, we were forced to use a specialty insulation board called Deck VQ. This is a condensed insulation board with the same U-value as a 120mm board but compressed to 70mm thickness. Because these boards cannot be cut or glued into, they must be ordered to fit the roof area's design. Otherwise, the thermal efficiency would suffer. The vapor control layer was self-adhered to the new plywood first, followed by the deck vq insulation being fully bonded and the membrane adhering to the insulation. We weathered in around 60 posts of balustrade to the brand new handrail.
