Alumasc Provides Green Roof for Pioneering Eco-Spa
Posted by david.luukas
Alumasc has provided a stunning ZinCo green roof for Coworth Park Hotel Spa, the ‘ground breaking’ new eco-luxury spa opened by the Dorchester Collection.
The luxurious spa is situated in Ascot on the borders of Windsor Great Park, buried within the natural contours of the landscape. The building is camouflaged by the ZinCo green roof which is also being used to cultivate thyme, lavender, chamomile and other fragrant herbs for use in natural treatments at the Spa. The pioneering design by architects, Purcell Miller Tritton, has kept the building’s volume and footprint to a minimum whilst intimately relating the spa to its sensitive green belt setting.
Throughout the design and installation, Alumasc liaised closely with Purcell Miller Tritton to find the optimum solution for the unique semi circular design of the Spa’s pitched curved roof. A total of 700m² of extensive and semi-intensive green roof systems were installed by M&J Flat Roofing over a Derbigum Warm Roof waterproofing system, also from Alumasc.
