Woodland Corporate Interiors required a terrace for the office staff at Helme + Partners. Ecodek was the decking choice of the main contractor and Pro Installers for Ecodek, Decorum.London Ltd were contracted to install the decking..
An awkward stepping arrangement with stair treads at differing elevations; made the initial site survey slightly more complex than drawn by the Architect. A meeting with all parties resolved this by allowing for a change in direction of the decking. This allowed the fall ratio of 1:80 to observe the step elevation and thus solved the problem. This resulted in both sets of steps having the same riser elevation.
Pedestals as recommended by Ecodek and stiff joists made up the essential structural component in order to provide a platform with a warranty. The structural loading was for a 1.5 kN intended use as this terrace was for the sole purpose of a small office exterior space and would only be used infrequently.
The fixings, specific to Ecodek are colour coded to each different colour deck in their range. By using the Torex head drill bit they are countersunk into predrilled holes in the deck.
Finish: Face fixed with colour matched screws.
