Romney Place, Kent House
Case Study Overview
Romney Place is set in the heart of Maidstone, Kent. The location has easy access from Junction 7, M20 by car and which is near Maidstone‘s extensive shopping, leisure and transport facilities, including easy train access to London.
The once landmark office building was acquired and converted into 150, one and two bedroom flats over 9 floors. The challenge at the time was finding a heating solution that was quick and easy to lay due to the project moving at a very fast pace. The existing subfloor was concrete and floor finish to be engineered timber.
ThermoSphere Foil was the perfect match for this project. Laid on a 10.5mm insulation board to prevent any heat loss down into the substrate, which increases the efficiency of the heating system in the rooms by 50%. The electric underfloor heating system was used as a primary heat source for the flats, providing design flexibility.
In addition, we provided ThermoSphere Mesh in the bathrooms under the tiled floor finish. To compliment the heating in the bathrooms we supplied our chrome electric ladder rails too. Each zone was controlled using our programmable thermostat. Part of our package was producing design layout drawings which helped the installers on site and to add that little bit extra, the agreed call off schedules were arranged per floor and packaged per flat!
