The prestigious address in London, 21 Manresa Road, is the location for one of London’s most exclusive and luxurious residential developments and consists of only 15 duplex, triplex and penthouse apartments.
The original building in Manresa Road was completed in 1895 for South West London Polytechnic and then became the home for Chelsea School of Art during the 1930’s. It was later transferred to King’s College London in 1985 and used as a research facility until 2002.
Only the Victorian façade of the building has been retained and stretches over 100m along Manresa Road.
Following success on previous projects with M&E Contractors F G Alden and Consultants Ralph T King, the velta systems have been installed to a number of the apartments.
The diversity of the apartments has utilised several velta systems, classic in flowing, sand cement and modified screeds, siccus with dry screed boards and minitec with special 15mm thick screeds. All the floor heating and screed works were undertaken under a single contract by velta.
In the majority of apartments, the floor heating is designed to maintain a constant temperature underfoot and is controlled together with air handling units by an intelligent management system.
Floor heating provides the ultimate comfort for the human body; warm feet and cool head, and when designing apartments of this calibre, velta can provide the perfect solution.
The single point of contact from design concept through to post installation service support with velta, provides both developers and final occupants with a high degree of confidence.
