An attractive new urban regeneration scheme has creatively reimagined
the former office headquarters of Burger King into 48 contemporary
apartments. The development led by Vivant Homes includes a mix of studio,
one and two bedroom apartments within the 6-storey building, offering the
very best in open-plan apartment living.
Part of a two-phase development, the first phase of The Park House Apartments, Bath Road, Slough, will benefit from an optimal acoustic performance between floors thanks to the innovative Profloor Levelling System from The A. Proctor Group. The initial phase comprised 24 apartments over three floors, with eight on each floor.
Andy Szymanski, Construction Manager at Vivant Homes explained, “the original raised access computer floors were removed and replaced using the Profloor Levelling System. The differences in the level of the two upper floors meant that we required a levelling system. The selection of the Profloor Levelling System enabled us to combine both the acoustic and levelling requirements into one solution rather than two separate components. Profloor Levelling System has been a great addition and was successfully installed using our installation team.”
For conversions and new build developments of flats where impact and airborne sound reduction is mandatory, the Profloor Levelling System is ideal, easy to install, and enables developers and contractors to meet the current legislative performance requirements.
Profloor Levelling System was specifically developed to allow a level finished floor to be installed on a cambered, stepped, or uneven sub-floor. The floor is levelled by inserting packers in each levelling base to adjust the level of the timber battens, and create a level finished floor, with no need for wet trades in the process.

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.
