The Triangle – the new home for Cambridge Assessment utilises Alumasc’s BluRoof Waterproofing System
Cambridge Assessment, the university’s international exams group, will be moving to a new home in 2018.
The Triangle, the new international headquarters will bring together all Cambridge Assessment’s Cambridge-based staff, currently based in 11 different offices across the city, bringing them all under one roof. The site is on what was previously Cambridge University Press’s Edinburgh Building on Shaftesbury Road Cambridge, to the South-East of Cambridge City Centre.
Designed by HLM/Sidell Gibson Architects, all flat roof areas are utilising Alumasc Roofing Systems’ Hydrotech Hot Melt and Alumasc XPS insulation offering a total system solution. All upper main roof areas drain onto 3 x single storey podiums that have the Alumasc BluRoof Drainage System.
Alumasc’s BluRoof system reduces and controls the peak rate of stormwater discharge from roof areas. Detention of storm water up to a prescribed maximum hydraulic head occurs, with subsequent discharge controlled over an elongated time period. The BluRoof drainage strategies were introduced at the design stage to help meet SuDS requirements and Alumasc worked extensively with Capita to achieve the required reduction in rainwater run-off.
The installation is being carried out by Alumasc registered approved contractor Cambridge Flat Roofing acting as sub-contractor to Bouygues UK, the project is on schedule to be completed later in 2017.

Wayne Farrington from Cambridge Flat Roofing says:
“This has been an excellent contract to be involved in, one of our first major BluRoof projects. The level of service and input from Alumasc’s Technical department, both internally and on-site along with Alumasc’s Customer Services team has been outstanding. Combined with the Hydrotech BluRoof Structural Waterproofing system, a system we have significant trust and experience in installing, we feel we’ve delivered a project we can be proud of. The feedback we’ve received from our client has been extremely positive and we look forward to our next Alumasc BluRoof.”
