SOPREMA continuously invests in innovative, future-proof products and solutions, often contributing to projects that form entire communities and provide residents with everything they need, as the company explains here.
Think London City Island which includes residential properties as well as cafes, shops, restaurants and cultural venues, or Chobham Manor which has been waterproofed with 13,000m2 of ALSAN PMMA. Also worthy of special mention is the Ropetackle Development in Shoreham-by-the-Sea, which was shortlisted for an Inside Housing Development Award. Completed in March 2021, the redevelopment on a former industrial site bounded by the River Adur, the South Coast Main Railway Line and the A283 Old Shoreham Road provides much needed new housing in the area.
In 2012 HGP Architects began planning and designing a new residential development along the River Adur in Shoreham, followed by detailed design and production together with PMC Construction. In addition to the 120 homes — a mix of three- and four-bedroom homes and one- and two-bedroom apartments — the Ropetackle condominium offers residents plenty of places to relax, with a riverside cafe, flexible community gallery, hotel, and a retail space.
When designing the high-end houses, HGP Architects pulled out all the stops. Matthew Edwards, Associate Director at HGP Architects. “We work together on many local developments and are all part of frameworks such as Hyde Housing and VIVID.
“What HGP Architects like most about working with SOPREMA is the support they receive.
“We develop a design intention, SOPREMA checks the details and is always on hand with advice and action. They also do a good job with calculations.”
SOPREMA also worked closely with HGP Architects and PMC Construction on the design and specifications for Shoreham. SOPREMA provided technical advice for the roof elements and carried out calculations such as U-value calculations and drainage calculations for the many flat roof areas (especially on the apartment buildings).
The systems used were a combination of SOPRALENE 250 warm roof slope systems with SOPRALENE 250 inverted terrace surfaces.
A hybrid solution consisting of SOPRALENE and ALSAN 770 proved to be ideal for the balconies. An important advantage of ALSAN liquid waterproofing systems is their compatibility and the fact that SOPREMA can offer a one-point guarantee on the entire waterproofing system. Other benefits include the fact that ALSAN is well suited for application to small areas and can be applied cold, making it particularly useful on projects where safety concerns may prohibit the use of flame.
All systems combined, SOPREMA delivered a waterproofing solution for an area of 3,000 m2. Questions about Ropetackle Housing Development or your own project? Don’t hesitate to get in touch with our experts.
