How grooved solutions have been making contractors and engineers reimagine the way they construct risers in vertical buildings.

Liquid applied waterproofing is becoming an increasingly popular flat-roofing solution for building owners, designers and contractors offering, as it does, a wide choice of high-performance system solutions for a host of requirements and applications. Suitable for roofing refurbishment, repair, new build, complex and inverted roofs; new formulations have enhanced its appeal over alternative bonded or torch-on systems, says Simon Ashworth, Product Manager – Liquids & Synthetics at BMI UK & Ireland.

Time is money; a motto that is particularly pertinent to the refurbishment of concrete infrastructure, such as roads, bridges, tunnels and the like. Delays in the repair of these vital transport links not only pile unnecessary stress on the commuting public, but local authorities also face additional expenditure each time a public project overruns; a financial burden that will inevitably be borne by the taxpayer.

Verksbyen, a new green neighbourhood in Fredrikstad, Norway, showcases the future of sustainable living. As part of the project, construction company Arca Nova Bolig is building five, five-storey apartment buildings situated in Capjon Park area in Verskbyen. The buildings are being constructed using Metsä Wood’s Kerto LVL (laminated veneer lumber) products – making the construction fast, light and green.

Paul Simmonds, Digital Marketing Manager at Wunda Group, discusses why specifiers should be looking at underfloor heating to help meet climate change goals.
