Render Unto Greenwich that which is Greener

22 April 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

A regeneration scheme at Greenwich Peninsula in London is said to offer full green credentials with an insulated render facade.

Architect Jestico + Whiles asked from Aliva UK, the specialist in facades and interior finishes for a cost effective yet aesthetically pleasing finish to an eight-storey residential block of 240 apartments; 40% of them are affordable housing.

The development by Wates Construction is one of the largest schemes in Europe, bringing thousands of new jobs, modern homes and a vibrant community to the area by the Thames near the O2 Arena.

Aliva supplied 5,500sqm of white acrylic TermoK8 insulated render to give the buildings a crisp, pared-back look that brought the project in on budget. The installers were Regency Plastering. Insulated render is claimed to be one of the most effective and efficient ways of improving a building’s thermal performance, reducing heating costs by up to 40%.

“We chose Aliva for Greenwich Peninsula because they provide a successful selection from a high quality, through coloured acrylic render system,” stated a spokesperson for Jestico + Whiles. “The finish needed to provide a calm, understated composition which has been achieved beautifully with a very neat, crisp finish throughout the elements of render within the development."
