Protect Membranes used in one of the UK’s best places to live

posted: 5th Feb 2018

Protect’s TF200 breather membrane has been used throughout an innovative mixed development scheme at Little Kelham in Sheffield, to ensure water resistance, vapour permeability and minimise the risk of condensation in the wall structure.

Built from a bespoke Structural Insulated Panel System by offsite construction specialist Innovaré for their client CITU Developments, the scheme comprised of energy efficient homes, apartment blocks, shops and cafes on the site of a former steelworks. Designed to be in line with Passivhaus guidelines, the development blended old with new, restoring elements of Sheffield’s industrial heritage.  Dubbed one of the 20 Hippest Places in the UK, the development was the winner of the Residential category for the RICS Yorkshire & Humber Awards.

Craig Lee, Supply Chain Manager at Innovaré commented, “Aside from outstanding thermal performance, the key elements to this project were the speed and predictability offered through the offsite route of construction. Protect’s water resistant membrane was ideally suited our i-SIP Full Structure system and its high availability helped us to achieve quick turnaround in the factory.”

Protect will be exhibiting at ecobuild (6-8 March 2018) in the MPBA Pavilion within the Offsite District on stand H60.
