Dandara chose Kemwell Soffit Liner Plus as their material of choice for the new basement-level car park at the New River View development in Enfield.

The New River View apartments, being built by principal contractors, Dandara, are due to be completed in Winter 2021. The redevelopment of the site includes the demolition of the existing commercial building to provide a 7 storey block of 91 residential units, with a parking basement level, landscaping and private and communal amenity space.


As part of the project, Dandara required a soffit insulation for the basement level car park with a high thermal performance, able to achieve the required U Value, with a durable impact-resistant facing board, light in weight, but robust enough to withstand high impact.

For the soffit insulation for the car park, Dandara chose Kemwell Soffit Liner Plus, an A1 non-combustible and moisture resistant insulation and building board, ideally suited for providing effective fire resistance and thermal insulation in commercial and industrial building projects.

The Kemwell Soffit Liner Plus incorporates a Kemwell Soffit Liner stone mineral wool insulation board, 160mm thick, with a 6mm thick calcium silicate impact resistant facing board.

The product was supplied by Encon Insulation and Nevill Long via their Maidstone branch for this project.




“The U Value assessment undertaken at site meant an insulated liner board would be required to our basement soffit. Encon were able to recommend and provide an insulated liner board to meet our requirements. Encon were able to deliver to site to suit our schedule, which helped with the seamless installation.”

Hilton’s first Hampton property in Leeds, scheduled to open in 2019. The 14-storey, 192-room Hampton by Hilton Leeds City Centre will form part of the regeneration of the city’s Bridge Street site, which was formerly home to British Gas.

The hotel will be the third Hilton property in Leeds, joining the existing Hilton Leeds City, and the Doubletree by Hilton Leeds City Centre. There are currently 18 Hampton properties in the UK, with a further 22 in the pipeline.

Commenting on the news Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Hilton said: “An important regional capital, Leeds is at the centre of the North of England’s economy and with the UK Government’s Northern Powerhouse proposals set to boost the regional economy – with investment in HS2 and local businesses – visitor numbers are set to increase considerably in the next five to ten years. “This is a terrific project to be a part of and a great opportunity to expand our fast growing Hampton by Hilton presence in the UK.”

Alex Chakrabarti, head of hospitality at Heeton Holdings, added: “We are thrilled to partner with Hilton as the franchisor for our hotel in Leeds. The hotel is well situated within the city centre and will contribute greatly to the vibrancy of the city as well as the growing hospitality sector in Leeds.”


Kemwell Fire International Limited is delighted to be part of this prestigious project with 5000 sq. m of 12mm WeatherKem being installed by Tasker Contractors.

WeatherKem is an A1 non-combustible weather-proof building board for interior and exterior applications. It combines weather, moisture and fire resistance properties with high impact strength and sound insulation.

It is primarily used as an external sheathing board on both metal and timber structures of all types of façade solutions and is particularly suited for hotels.

WeatherKem Fibre Cement Board is designed specifically to meet the complex and stringent requirements of the building and construction industry, providing architects, developers, and contractors with adaptability and performance benefits to enable safe and innovative designs to be easily realised.

Kemwell’s technical support, along with the easy to use and certified WeatherKem product was essential during the building envelope construction of the hotel.
