ITP Ltd secured a specification at one of London’s most iconic new developments with the supply of the award-winning Safe One breather membrane for Lucent W1.
A £250m project which features the city’s famous Piccadilly Lights at its core, Lucent W1 comprises 110,000 sq ft of offices, 30,000 sq ft of retail space and 3,000 sq ft residential space including 20 roof terraces. The development has been described as ‘an urban oasis in the centre of London’ with expansive green zones and flexible workspaces designed to foster a strong sense of community.
Lucent W1 will revive and transform One Sherwood Street – the space behind the Lights – into a new six-storey building designed by architect Fletcher Priest. Construction is being overseen by principal contractor Wates, for developer Landsec.
Safe One was supplied via leading specialist distributor, SIG. The product will protect the long-term condition of the building envelope with a W1 rating for water tightness to prevent rain ingress and high water vapour permeability to control and release condensation from the building’s interior. Its advanced membrane also has a Euroclass A2,s1-d0 fire safety rating, waterproofing of 7000mm and an outstanding UV resistance of 5000 hours.
Jess Harrison, ITP Account Manager, said:
“Landsec has an incredible portfolio of projects and ITP are delighted to supply a product on their latest landmark development. Safe One is fast becoming the go-to membrane for prestigious high-profile schemes of this nature. The system’s wide-ranging capabilities make it a compelling choice for specifications which demand high all-round performance. Safe One has an award-winning pedigree, having received Product of the Year in the Façade 2022 Design and Engineering Awards.”
Safe One is one of an extensive range of protective membrane solutions in ITP’s portfolio. The company also manufactures an advanced range of vapour control layers, roofing underlays, house wraps and ground barrier membranes.
