Large Apartment Scheme for Barratt Homes, London

Barratt Homes London use Gypsol Sumitt high rise screed

Gypsol have developed a range of products for different applications. These include not only screeds for common applications, timber floors and modular construction but we have also developed Gypsol Summit which is suitable for high rise applications where the screed needs to pumped above 10 stories.

 

This project consisted of a 26 story block of apartments which all required a resilient acoustic membrane and a screed which could be guaranteed to achieve a minimum of 80kg/m2. This was in order to ensure that the scheme met the relevant building regulations with regard to sound transmission. The screed also needed to be manufactured off site and be delivered and installed so as to cause as little disruption to the surrounding environment as possible. Gypsol Summit not only exhibited the right  density criteria but also allowed the screed to be pumped from a single pump, located at ground level, directly to where in the building it needed to be thus. There was a limit to the program time available for installing and drying the screed in order to bring the project in on schedule. Gyspol Summit easily met all of the specified requirements and was therefore selected for the project

 

The in-situ concrete slab, used to form the structural floor slab at intermediate floor level, was cleaned prior to the installation of the resilient acoustic membrane. Underfloor heating and 50mm Gypsol Summit screed installed.
