UCL Academy and Swiss Cottage School

Architect: Penoyre & Prasad LLP

The prestigious UCL Academy and Swiss Cottage Schools is an exciting and diverse development located in Swiss Cottage, North London. The scheme comprises the demolition and development of the new UCL Academy and replacement of the Swiss Cottage SEN School.

Working closely with BAM Construction under the Camden BSF Scheme, Alltech Roofing are providing 10,000m2 of fully bonded Alumasc Hydrotech system to all main roof areas, terraces inclusive of 2,500m2 podium tanking linking both UCL Academy and the Swiss Cottage School.

High performance bio-diverse roofing finishes are employed on UCL and Swiss Cottage main roof areas for full compliance with BREEAM excellence. All terraces comprise extensive green roof system with pre grown sedum carpet to finish. Trafficked areas include 400 x 400 x 50mm high specification granite black fleck pavings on standard support system providing excellent aesthetics. The overall U Value on the scheme is 0.15 W/m2K and this was achieved by a variety of expanded polystyrene insulation thicknesses proposed and agreed on each roof level, balancing thermal performance whilst achieving FFL requirements.
