Fast-track Admaster ideal for Grand Arcade, Cambridge

  • Comment

Over 4,000 sqm of Admaster Composite Support System panels with an 80mm thick LPCB-approved PIR (polyisocyanurate) insulation core were specified by Chapman Taylor Architects for the low pitched roof and upper floor wall areas of the impressive new Grand Arcade retail centre in Cambridge. Bovis Lend Lease was the main contractor and T. R. Freeman Ltd installed the Admaster CSS panels, finishing them all with a Rheinzink 0.7mm pre-weathered raised seam zinc outer sheet.

“We specified Admaster CSS as it provides an economic fast-track building solution. The self-supporting system enables a CDM-safe and virtually weatherproof roof platform to be created very quickly allowing other internal work to progress immediately whilst the exterior roof finish is being completed, thereby saving time and money,” says James Atha of Chapman Taylor.

Comprising a pre-coated polyester flat outer steel sheet with a virtually flat white polyester coated steel inner liner and an LPCB-approved PIR insulation core with thicknesses ranging from 50mm to 200mm enables the Admaster CSS to achieve U-values as low as 0.10 W/m²K. The system has also gained a BREEAM ‘A+’ rating in accordance with the Green Guide to Specification.

Providing a temporary weathering platform capable of supporting foot traffic during the construction process, lightweight Admaster CSS is available in standard lengths from 2 to 12 metres and can also be supplied in longer lengths of up to 18 metres where required. Admaster CSS panels have an 1100mm standard cover width with an air-tight tongue and groove side lap joint - the flat outer sheet forms an ideal base for an endless array of weather sheet finishes as the system is compatible with most materials including copper, aluminium, terne stainless steel, zinc, slating, tiling and single ply membrane.

Owned by Universities Superannuation Scheme Ltd, Grand Arcade offers shoppers an exciting mix of 60 fashion, beauty, home, jewellery, food and children’s-wear retailers right in the heart of the beautiful city of Cambridge.
