Innovative decking and curved edging create practical roof terraces

Rotherhithe New Road is a £40m residential development in Bermondsey SE16. Apartments, villas and penthouses are located across an 18-storey tower and a lower rise 16-storey building. As part of a larger scale regeneration project, this development was completed in September 2017.

The project detail

The Rotherhithe New Road urban development benefits from large roof
terraces on the 10th and 16th floors. The main terrace on the 10th floor has a
variety of surfaces for residents to enjoy - from artificial grass and green roof
to paving and decking. The 16th floor terrace incorporates planters and
decking for a contemporary feel.

Choosing the product

Application: To create practical decking areas for a contemporary
urban space.
The roof terraces were designed as a raised podium construction on an
inverted roof system. Kinley’s Terrafina Composite decking was used to
create a long lasting, low maintenance, slip resistant surface. In addition,
support pedestals made an adjustable structure under both the decking
and paving areas. AluExcel aluminium edging was also used to shape the
landscape by effectively delineating between the different surfaces.

Managing the installation

Kinley’s Terrafina decking and support structures made installation quick
and easy. The decking panels clamped together creating invisible joins
in no time at all.

Overcoming the challenges

The main challenge for this project was the construction depth.
With very little depth available from the roof surface to door threshold
heights, the shallow installation requirements of Kinley’s Terrafina
decking enabled the design to be implemented as planned. This was
supported by using Spirapave 12mm pedestals as part of the installation.

The end result

Now, the residential development benefits from being situated in a
convenient city location with excellent views across London, but also enjoys
functional outdoor green space for recreational use. Overall, it is an
outstanding multi-surface design with creative play elements, planting and
seating zones – an ideal home for its occupants.

Why Kinley?

Kinley’s Terrafina decking was chosen because of its high quality, durability
and clean, contemporary looks, as well as ease of installation which saved a
lot of time on site. The decking, along with the support structures enabled
the overall look to be implemented as the architect designed because it
overcame the challenges of a roof terrace environment. Kinley’s products
helped to create a desirable place to be where residents can relax and
enjoy a view across the city of London.

Installing Kinley’s Terrafina decking was easy and time-saving due to its unique fixing system. Its clean, modern looks and long lifespan has provided a high quality finish, ensuring the project’s success. The easy installation also saved us considerable time on site.
