Alumasc Meets Environmental Criteria At EcoCampus, Hamilton International Park
Alumasc’s ZinCo green roof system and Hydrotech structural waterproofing were key elements in the EcoCampus at Hamilton International Park, a uniquely sustainable business community located south east of Glasgow.
Built by Balfour Beatty, the EcoCampus is designed to provide a sustainable foundation delivering high performance buildings with EPC & BREEAM ‘Carbon Neutral’ & ‘Excellent’ Status. The EcoCampus accommodates businesses within three Grade A carbon neutral buildings totalling 223,800 square feet.
The ZinCo intensive green roof system features planter zones, small plants, shrubs and bushes and was an important part of the development’s environmental focus. Briggs Amasco installed the green roof over approximately 7,500m2 of Alumasc’s Hydrotech MM6125 structural waterproofing. The roof also features Alumasc’s Harmer AV Roof Outlets.
Client, HFD Group, was influential in the specification of Hydrotech as they had used ZinCo green roofs on other parts of the Park and were keen to achieve a high performance waterproofing solution for the podium car park.
The green roof provides recreational space for people and a rich habitat for wildlife, as well as facilitating reduced water run-off and lower noise levels. The greater substrate depth of the intensive roof also provides particularly good insulation properties.
ZinCo Intensive green roofs replicate ground-based landscaping for recreational use and are suitable for new build schemes with roof and podium decks. They offer the benefits of a small urban park and support a wide range of plants, trees and shrubs, having a typical substrate depth that ranges from 150-1500mm.
Hydrotech is the first choice for zero falls waterproofing on inverted green roofs and hard landscaped podium structures in new build applications. It is manufactured using 10% post-consumer recycled material, is BBA accredited and has European Technical Approval ETA-05/0152. Hydrotech is designed to last for lifetime of the structure and is available with a choice of warranties.
