Isocrete 1500 specified for residential development in London neighbourhood
12,000sq m of Flowcrete’s self-levelling screed system, Isocrete 1500, have been installed at a prestigious development in London’s sought-after Mayfair district.
Set over ten floors, the development views over Green Park and Buckingham Palace and private wellness facilities.
Designed by Squire and Partners and built by main contractor Laing O’Rourke, Clarges Mayfair complements the historic architecture of surrounding Piccadilly landmarks. Interiors have been designed by Martin Kemp Design.
12,000sq m of Isocrete 1500 was specified for the development to deliver a solid platform along with reportedly excellent strength and performance drying times.
The material was installed by Flowcrete licensed applicator, TCS Group — a contractor for residential and commercial developments.
Isocrete 1500 can reportedly be walked on in two hours, speeding up construction schedules and allowing follow-on trades early access to the site.
Flowcrete says Isocrete 1500 can be both hand (0 – 20 mm) or pump applied (4 – 20 mm) for levelling concrete floors.
Around 2,000sq m of Isocrete 1500 can be pumped per day under suitable conditions, the company says.
Isocrete 1500 has been designed for primarily for new construction where finishes such as carpets, ceramic tiles, vinyl, linoleum wood block or cork need to be applied quickly. It may be used as a screed to receive an epoxy resin finish in areas taking light traffic.
A second system from Flowcrete, Isopol SBR, was also used in the spa and swimming pool area, reportedly on account of its moisture tolerance.
Isopol SBR is a styrene butadiene polymer latex screed additive and bonding agent. It is used to produce polymer modified wearing screeds for heavy duty and industrial flooring and for rapid drying, levelling screeds (minimum 10 mm thickness) to receive floor finishes.
