Kemper helps to create the green on the 19th hole at Richmond Golf Club
Kemper System’s Kemperol V210 waterproofing membrane has played an important role in the development of a new sustainable club house at Richmond Park Golf Club. The new facilities incorporate a number of green technologies in order to achieve a BREEAM rating of excellent.
Distinctively shaped like a bird in flight, the roof of the new club house has been designed to complement the building’s surroundings and maximise its thermal efficiency. The building boasts a green roof over a warm roof build-up, which uses acid turf from the Royal Park at Richmond allowing the gently sloping building to blend into the rolling landscape of the course.
Gary Millsom of roofing contractor, Garhigh, said, “In order to ensure the roof remained watertight, Kemper System’s seamless liquid waterproofing system Kemperol V210 was selected for its FLL certified root-resistant properties, durability and proven performance in green roof developments.”
Jon Dummett, Head of Golf for Glendale Managed Services explains: “The £2.5m investment into the clubhouse is part of our long-term commitment to improving the facilities at Richmond Park Golf Course. Working in conjunction with The Royal Parks, an important aspect of this project is sustainable building design and the use of renewable energy sources. The response from our customers has been terrific and the green roof has been a real talking point.”
