Smithfield Square (Hornsey Depot) Comes to Life with Blackdown’s Green Roof Systems
Smithfield Square is one of St James Homes’ latest developments offering luxury suites, 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. The two live work units give residents the opportunity to relax in luxury and comfort, whilst being able to work with convenience.
The project included brown roofs designed in accordance with planning constraints and London Plan guidelines, materials supplied by Blackdown Roof & Podium Landscaping, a Division of Alumasc Building Products. This combination of Hydrotech waterproofing and Blackdown green roof systems allows Hornsey Depot to benefit from various ‘green’ spaces and St James with a one-stop solution in compliance to NHBC Part 7 policy.
At roof and podium level a reliable, long lasting solution was needed for waterproofing the various areas, public spaces and recreational areas prior to architectural landscaping being installed.
Alumasc Roofing’s Hydrotech Hot Melt system, which demonstrates a zero product failure over a 50 year track record, provided the ideal waterproofing solution, 12,000m2 was installed in total.
