Hayes Yard, Uxbridge
Contract Type: Residential New Build
Client: Oskomera Facades (UK) Ltd
The Hayes Yard project, later known as Highpoint Village, was developed on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, just a few minutes from Heathrow Airport. It comprises 600 apartments, a luxury hotel, a spa complex and retail units. Oskomera UK appointed Lawtech to install External Wall Insulation to seven new build tower blocks and an Energy Centre.
Using a reinforced Alumasc Swiss Rail system, 13,000m2 of mineral wool and EPS insulation boarding was installed to achieve a U-Value of 0.18W/m²K with BREEAM Class 1 rating and full NHBC compliance.
Finished in a selection of white and grey ST Silkolitt Silicone renders, the most challenging aspect of the project concerned the nine-storey hotel block where the architect wished to create a unique ‘picture frame’ detail. Constructed from expanded polystyrene and designed and built using movement profiles, the feature was constructed with sufficient flexibility to allow it to remain independent of the structure and capable of withstanding significant wind loadings.
This NHBC award-winning project gained further recognition when Lawtech was ‘Highly Commended’ at the Insulated Render and Cladding Association awards held at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
