Architect : Glancy Nicholls
Project Value : £28m
SuperFOIL SF40 with it’s un-matched performance and highly reflective foil layers allowed the architect to specify a solution to achieve the u-value target of 0.15 without using excessively thick panels. Reducing thickness of the structure provides more living space and therefore increasing the value of the property.
The improved air tightness provided by SuperFOIL Superior Tape with SF40’s thermal performance and reflective foil surfaces, combine to create a high performance insulation system. SuperFOIL Superior Tape is a high performance fully reinforced foil tape recommended for sealing all seams, joints and edges of SuperFOIL multifoil insulation.
The Wembley scheme provides 120,000 sq ft of new retail and leisure, an 86-bedroom hotel with a bar/restaurant, and 273 apartments, including 85 affordable homes. In addition to the new public square, a refurbished 24-hour multi-storey car park, new public WC facilities, and a significantly enhanced tube and train station are features of the scheme.
