ITP have made two key contributions to Royal Eden Docks, a prestigious mixed-use development in London from Mount Anvil Homes. Situated near ExCeL London, east of Canary Wharf, the 854-home complex comprises studios and one, two and three bedroom apartments alongside flexible workspaces.
ITP’s FlameOut Block FR vapour control membrane has been extensively specified throughout the development and our Powerclad vented scaffold sheeting has been installed to provide site security and containment. We supplied Powerclad with bespoke printing to promote the Mount Anvil Homes and ExCeL London brands.
Designed to enable residents to enjoy a laid-back dockside lifestyle, Royal Eden Docks boasts state of the art facilities including a gym, spa and rooftop running track along with a 24-hour concierge service and a cinema room. Due for completion in 2022, the development also includes 5,000 sqm of landscaped garden space.
Royal Eden Docks was designed by world-renowned architects, Skidmore, Owings and Merill, who are behind globally iconic buildings such as Dubai’s Burj Khalifa and the China World Trade Centre in Beijing. The development is located within an expanding area of East London which is set to receive £8bn investment over the next 20 years, burgeoning the new Elizabeth line (Crossrail) which will slash journey times across the capital to this thriving area of London. The Mayor of London has approved a £100m investment in public spaces, creating new walking and cycling routes through the Royal Docks.
The FlameOut Block FR became part of the specification when the product was chosen by PIB Contractors. Designed to help maintain the long-term condition of a building, FlameOut Block FR is a polyethylene-based vapour control layer with a mono-filament reinforcement to provide excellent strength and nail tear resistance in wall and roof insulations. Its air and vapour control improves air tightness and prevents moisture within the building’s warm air from reaching the insulation layer and forming interstitial condensation. The membrane is independently tested to British and international flame retardant standards, including a Euroclass B-s1,d0 fire safety rating which meets the latest building regulations.
Scaffold contractor, N.T.Rix, fitted ITP’s Powerclad vented sheeting to provide strong, air permeable containment and protection. Suitable for all scaffold systems and temporary perimeter fencing, the system is compliant to BS 7955 and available in flame retardant grades to BS 476 Part 12C.
Marisa Schofield, ITP Account Manager, said:
‘We are delighted to be involved in another high-profile architectural project in the capital. Fire risk is an ever-more important factor in the design and specification of developments, especially high-rise buildings where safety is especially critical. Our FlameOut products have been used throughout London to reduce potential fire risk on buildings of this nature, Royal Eden Docks being the latest example. It’s a very exciting project to be involved in, and we are looking forward to seeing its completion.”
