Client: HZI

Architect: RPS Group

Main Contractor: Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd

Scope: Intumescent coatings: Sherwin Williams FX1003 Resistex C137, BG Glasroc Firecase 2 hour encasement, fire and acoustic and air sealing: Rockwool

Package Value: £512,000

Shortly after commencing this project to apply an intumescent coating system the deteriorating weather conditions meant that continuing with the specification was untenable. After lengthy discussions with the design and construction team the decision was taken to change the contract to a board encasement system. Due to time constraints the client took possession of the Turbine hall area and the Glasroc had to be fitted after the process equipment was installed. Much of this work required complicated scaffolding and “Spider” MEWPs due to the congested nature of the site.
