Bispham is a stylish £5.68m scheme of 46 self-contained two-bedroom apartments aimed at the over 55s.
Features include art deco and nautical inspired exteriors with bold coloured render and communal facilities which include a spa and Jacuzzi. Designed by architects Croft Goode and built by Seddon Construction Group the apartments offer residents the independence of a self-contained apartment with the security and peace of mind of 24 hour care.
The timber frame structure required a lightweight insulation system. A Wetherby Insulated Render System incorporating 40mm phenolic insulation was the ideal solution as the thermal properties of the phenolic insulation gave the apartments an exceedingly low u-value of 0.18W/m²K, which in turn will help residents save money on their heating bills.
The phenolic boards were fixed to timber battens at 600mm centres to create the necessary drainage cavity. A K&A basecoat was then applied to the insulation which was then encapsulated in a layer of 1.5mm Silicone Render in grey to the ground floor area and striking red and white panels to the upper floors.
Due to the building being constructed of timber frame, slip joints were installed at every floor level to allow for movement.
The residents simply can’t wait to move into their new apartments and have commented that it will be like living in a hotel with the fantastic facilities that are on offer.
