Increasingly high demands are being made on buildings to be energy efficient. This is being driven by 3 key factors including; a growing realisation that energy supplies are not certain, dramatically increasing energy costs and aware ness of the negative environmental effects of CO2 emmissions. As a result, the need for long term environmental and economic solutions is becoming increasingly pressing.
Roofs play a vital role in the energy performance of buildings. Modern roof surfaces need to be
watertight as well as enabling the developer or building owner to take advantage of a range of energy-saving
and energy generation possibilities. These include; durable roof membranes, often with heat reflecting
properties, high performance insulation systems, water recycling systems, water buffering green roofs
and microgeneration technologies such as photovoltaic.
Current Featured Project
Project: London Cross Rail
Project Description: Industrial Construction (Sussex) Limited recently completed a very successful project for Vinci working on the Victoria Docks Portal section of the London Cross Rail project. Our work involved fixing MBK terracotta baguettes in wave pattern using seven different colours onto trespa panel.
One of the significant challenges of this project was working from track mounted MEWPs, utilising allocated track hours and working very close to the DLR train line.
All materials for this project were from ISO approved suppliers.
