An innovative new residential development on the site of the old former Cambridge City Football Club has achieved a high performance acoustic flooring solution using the Profloor Dynamic Deck System from The A. Proctor Group Ltd.
The Mitchams Park site consists of a series of contemporary 1 & 2 bedroom apartments, 2, 3, 4 & 5 bedroom family houses and townhouses for leading developer Crest Nicholson. Formation Architects were appointed by Crest Nicholson in conjunction with Camal Architects of Cambridge for the design. An exciting regeneration of the former Cambridge City Football Club grounds, the development pays homage to the beautiful game in some of the landscape features, such as the central, pitch-like green, and the planted ‘players tunnel’ linking two of the garden areas.
Achieving compliance with impact and airborne sound reduction as identified in key building regulations such as Approved Document E and Robust Details was central to the specification of Profloor Dynamic Deck, which is easy to install, and enables developers and contractors to meet the current legislative performance requirements.
The Profloor Dynamic Deck 26 system provides a high degree of isolation resulting in significant improvements in impact sound insulation and is suitable for both timber and concrete floors, and for new build or refurbishment projects. Situated close to the heart of Cambridge, the Mitchams Park, development was shortlisted for the Housing Design Awards 2015.
For any building to have an energy efficient, healthy, moisture free building envelope there is a clear need to manage the balance of Heat, Air and Moisture movement (HAMM) throughout the building’s life cycle from design, construction, completion and use.
