Fletcher Priest Architects were appointed for the design of Angel Court, with the ambition to inject a new social community into the area, as well as an exquisite reconstruction of the thriving financial aspect of the area, being situated in Bank.
Specialist façade and roofing contractor Prater worked together with Radmat to deliver a hot melt package on this 25 storey project which provides 30,000 sq ft of new office space, with 4,300 sq ft being dedicated to the sky floors offering panoramic views of London. Logistically, the project was especially challenging with the commercial and residential elements being built concurrently – restricting the distribution of materials on site.
The project features five roof gardens and terraces – a worthy addition to Bank Conservation Area. Radmat’s PermaQuik PQ1600 Hot Melt Monolithic waterproofing system was chosen in order to ensure that all rooftop gardens and all concrete decks were completely watertight with minimal runoff, coupled with its BBA-certified durability for the lifetime of the building.
To meet the thermal requirements, ProTherm QuantumPLUS was specified for its revolutionary properties since the upstaged height was insufficient to allow the installation of a normal XPS. Subsequently, the installation of Quantum meant that the U-value and the Part-M access requirements could be met without compromising the building’s aesthetics. This was also the first installation of ProTherm QuantumPLUS globally.
