NON-SLIP TIMBER DECKING USED TO CONSTRUCT ROOF DECK AT HISTORIC CLIFFORD’S TOWER

July 2022

Perched on a hill overlooking York, Clifford’s Tower has played a significant role in the city’s history. And now, following a £5m refurbishment project, which included the construction of a roof deck using Marley CitiDeck, this historic monument can continue to delight and educate visitors for many more years.

A fortress has stood on the site of Clifford’s Tower since the Norman Conquest and the structure has served a number of functions throughout its history, from a royal mint to a medieval stronghold and a garrison in the Civil Wars.

Until very recently, the remains of the English Heritage structure were little more than a hollowed-out shell. But the refurbishment project has brought life – and tourists – back to the bastion, opening up parts of the tower that have been off-limits since the tower was gutted by fire in 1684.

The works have included installing aerial walkways that provide access to the first-floor rooms of the tower, while a free-standing roof deck provides spectacular 360-degree views across York. To help ensure the safety of visitors, and to provide a natural and attractive surface, Marley’s non-slip timber decking, CitiDeck, was used for the decking.

Non-slip timber decking fit for a king

Building the roof deck required careful planning, both to preserve the historic structure and to ensure the new elements were structurally sound. This meant building a completely new timber structure inside the tower.

Four enormous glulam columns were installed to provide support for the timber deck. They also form the basis for the internal walkways and staircases that provide access to the upper levels of the tower.

The non-slip timber deck itself was constructed using Marley CitiDeck. The decking was installed, and carefully cut to a smooth curve following the line of the new metalwork guarding at the edge. There is also a large opening in the middle that allows visitors to look down to the floor of the keep. The boards were also used to create seating areas and the guard structure around the central opening.

“We chose CitiDeck because we needed an attractive and robust anti-slip timber decking for use in high-traffic public areas,” explains an architect at Hugh Broughton Architects Ltd who worked on the project. “We wanted a consistent appearance between the deck boards, and the timber boards forming the sides to the benches and perimeter guarding, and CitiDeck made that possible,” they add.

Non-slip timber decking CitiDeck – A safe surface

With high numbers of visitors to the tower, safety was a top priority. “It’s great that CitiDeck boards perform very well in testing when both wet and dry,” the architect says.

According to the Health and Safety Executive, flooring is considered to have a low slip potential if it achieves pendulum test value (PTV) of at least 36. CitiDeck has been extensively tested, and has far exceeded the minimum, with PTVs of 61 when wet and 73 when dry.

Durability and ease of maintenance were also important considerations for the external and exposed public rooftop area. The smooth profile of the boards was an especially attractive feature, as it reduces the likelihood of grit getting trapped in any grooves. It also means that the decking can be easily cleaned by brushing, as there’s no water source available at the roof deck level.

Sustainable non-slip timber decking

Sustainability was another important consideration. While a variety of decking products were considered, including composite boards. Timber was ultimately chosen due to its sustainability credentials.

“Timber was preferable due to it being a natural material,” the architect explains. Marley’s CitiDeck is sourced from managed forests that are PEFC or FSC certified, so specifiers can rest assured that it is an environmentally friendly product. The architect also notes that timber has the potential for repurposing at the end of its lifespan: “There are more options for recycling the boards at the end of their usable life,”.

Specifying Marley CitiDeck

As well as providing a durable, slip-resistant and attractive decking product, Marley also helped to ensure the Clifford’s Tower project went smoothly, answering questions and queries as they came up, providing details in terms of product selection and composition.

Handmade in the UK, Marley check the quality at every stage of the process, and for extra reassurance, CitiDeck has the TDCA DeckMark® and DeckMark® Plus quality certification.

Marley CitiDeck has been awarded “Preservative Treated Wood Project of the Year” by The Wood Protection Association (Wood Protection Association | UK (thewpa.org.uk)

Part L changes to Building regulations now live for the construction industry

July 2022

Part L changes to Building regulations now live for the construction industry.

But is the industry prepared?

The journey towards a net-zero future passes a significant milestone with the 2022 changes to Part L of the Building Regulations becoming a reality, this provides the benchmark for the design and building standard for energy performance in carbon emissions of new and existing buildings.

But is the construction industry prepared for the update?

Ahead of the interim changes to the uplift in Part L we recently conducted research among more than 200 important stakeholders, including architects, housebuilders and specifiers.

We investigate the levels of confidence specifiers have in the sector around Part L, as well as their views on sustainable technologies such as solar PV.

Read more about our research by downloading our Part L Whitepaper here.

Everything specifiers need to know about Part L | Marley

The role of Solar PV

A solar PV roofing system is widely acknowledged to be an important product solution to help produce the low carbon and energy efficient housing required in the future. Experts say that home energy efficiency set out in Part L cannot be delivered by enhancements to the building fabric alone. It is therefore expected that the specification of solar PV, together with an efficient gas boiler or heat pump, will provide the quickest and most cost-effective way for the sector to meet the immediate Part L 31% carbon reduction obligations
