Ravago Building Solution’s Ravatherm XPS X 300 SB high-performance extruded polystyrene (XPS) thermal insulation boards are being used in the construction of R-WALL, a new innovative, government-supported build system, revolutionising how houses are constructed in the UK.

As a slim and highly efficient thermal multi-foil insulation for use in roofs, walls and floors, Alumaflex® is ideal for barn or loft conversions and in general timber frame construction. The proven, high performance product has UKAS accreditation and thanks to further investment by IPP (Magply), was also awarded LABC Certificate No EW 1045 in July.

The current pandemic has generated a pressing need to radically adapt virtually all indoor space, from hospitals to hotels, from commercial offices to education facilities. Responding to this, Style, the UK’s market leading operable wall specialist, has launched a new ‘social distancing’ section of their website, highlighting exactly how modern moveable partitioning systems can be effectively utilised to create safer environments for everyone.

Architects, urban planners and roof designers are no longer dismissive of this ‘new’ building material which was widely introduced to them 12 years ago. Any initial hesitation they may have originally expressed has given way to a profound understanding and professionalism which has radically influenced our urban environment. In other words, they are no longer ‘green’ about the enormous physical, social and money-saving benefits of green roofs.

Senior Architectural Systems’ slimline SF52 aluminium curtain walling system proved just the ticket to create the bright and modern façade of the new-look bus station in Rawtenstall, Lancashire.

The launch of Nordic Décor adds an extra dimension to the diversity of Nordic Copper surfaces and alloys from Aurubis, particularly for interior design

Following the launch of the FIS Acoustic Verification Scheme, Style is proud to have 26 moveable wall products tested and approved, confirming its position as the UK market leader.

There are a lot of advantages to open-plan office environments so long as the space is designed in the right way, with one eye on acoustics. Simon Boocock, Managing Director of CRL, looks at the benefits and possible solutions for creating a harmonious open-plan environment.

As one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world, Oman has transformed in just five decades from an underdeveloped Bedouin country to a modern state. Today, the Sultanate in the south-east of the Arabian Peninsula is considered the safest country in the Middle East and, as such, is becoming an ever-more attractive destination for business and leisure travel. In order to keep pace with the rapid growth that this has brought about, the Gulf State is investing billions in expanding its airport infrastructure.

Built in 1938 and protected by Concrete Blast Walls, Bawdsey Radar Station was the world’s first operational radar station. The walls had decayed steadily since the building was vacated in 1991, leaving the top layer of reinforcement exposed to the elements.
