Kinley Terrafina decking was chosen for a new £40m residential development in Bermondsey, which features apartments, villas and penthouses located across an 18-storey tower and a lower rise 16-storey building. The main terrace incorporates artificial grass, green roof space, paving and decking. The 16th floor terrace has a contemporary feel with planters and decking.
The project aim was to create practical decking areas for a contemporary, urban roof terrace. The terraces were designed as a raised podium construction on an inverted roof system. The main challenge was the construction depth, with little distance from the roof surface to the door threshold.
Kinley’s Terrafina composite decking was used to create a long-lasting, low-maintenance, slip-resistant surface. AluExcel aluminium edging was also used to shape the landscape by delineating between the different surfaces. Thanks to the shallow installation requirements of Kinley’s Terrafina decking, the product could be used to implement the original design as planned. The decking was supported by Spirapave 12mm pedestals.
Installation of Kinley’s Terrafina decking and support structures was quick and easy. The decking panels clamped together in a short space of time to create invisible joins.
Kinley’s Terrafina decking was selected due to its high quality, durability, and clean, contemporary appearance, as well as the ability of the products to overcome the design challenges presented by this particular project. In addition, Terrafina's ease of installation saved a lot of time on site.
