Edmund Street in Camerwell is a regeneration scheme for Notting Hill Housing that is being developed by Ardmore Construction. It will create a mix of 279 private, social and affordable housing arranged in ten blocks ranging from three to seven stories in height.
There is a broad mix of residential types, ranging from apartments and duplex units to family houses, all achieving Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.
The main aim of the scheme was to reconnect streets to the surrounding area, providing new, safe pedestrian links and integrated public amenity spaces at key locations. Clearly defined private amenities are also created within private landscaped courtyards, communal roof terraces and generous balconies.
Homes have been developed using a mix of building types and a variety of heights, with variations in roof forms, materials and textures utilised to create a varied street scene built around defined character areas.
Ardmore had a choice of flooring materials for balconies and communal roof terraces and chose decking.
Over 14,000 linear metres of 28 x 145mm C16 Marley Standard castellated decking was ordered because it is a high-quality structural timber deck board that uses kiln-dried European redwood. It has a multispan range of 290mm, which makes it idael for balconies and other outdoor spaces.
Standard timber deck boards can be treated to Use Class 3 (UC3) MicroPro or UC4 (Naturewood) to suit individual project requirements.
Joe Pitt of Enfield-based contractors Ardmore Construction Ltd siad: “Marley Eternit provides lots of technical data, so it was easy to identify the right grade of decking for the balconies and communal areas for this project.
Ardmore is extremely satisfied with the communication, assistance, product and overall customer care provided by Marley. I would recommend the company on future works where this product type is required.”
