King Edward Quay

King Edwards Quay, Colchester is Smart-Student Living rented accommodation which offers students high quality shared accommodation with easy access to Essex university and Colchester town centre. The development comprises 779 bedrooms across eight floors with a shop, restaurant and spacious communal areas both internally and externally on the lower levels. 

7500m2 of Dryvit Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) system was specified incorporating, 190mm expanded polystyrene (EPS) installed over prefabricated pods. Ashlar grooves were cut into the EPS to satisfy the local planners requirements for a panelised system.

Being a requirement of the insurers for student accommodation Dryvit's comprehensive fire approvals from the Loss Prevention Board Certification (LPCP) and LPS 1581 were instrumental in the specification of the expanded polystyrene (EPS) based insulated render system.

Dryvit's market leading fire certification
