The Height of High-Rise Flooring

The UK’s cityscapes are being revolutionised by the increasing number of high-rise residential developments – and nowhere is this more apparent than in London. In fact, a recent study by New London Architecture (NLA) and consultancy GL Hearn shows that the number of towers under construction in the capital rose 56 per cent in 2015 compared to 2014.

Modern flooring solutions are required to meet the demands of these structures, which are frequently at the forefront of architectural practise. The pump-applied, self levelling Isocrete Alpha Screed is ideally suited to both the practical installation aspects of such large-scale constructions, able to quickly provide a smooth, self-compacting surface which can be topped with a variety of finishes.

Flooring solutions for today’s cutting-edge construction industry need to combine functionality with sustainability. 95% of the alpha hemi-hydrate sulphate binder used in this solution is reclaimed from power station waste to reduce the amount of material sent to landfills.
