Works complete on Noah's Ark Children's Hospice

The beginning of the year saw the completion of Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, a new build project in Herfordshire where 510m² of Bauder's bituminous waterproofing system, Bauderflex, was installed along with a biodiverse green roof plus a BioSOLAR system.

BioSOLAR is an integrated mounting solution for photovoltaic renewable energy with a green roof where the substrate and vegetation provide the ballasted installation mechanism which removes the need for penetrating the waterproofing to secure the mounting units to the roof. This system enabled Noah’s Ark to achieve two of their key project objectives of creating a biodiverse roof and generating renewable energy.
Noah's Ark Children's Hospice currently supports over 160 children who are seriously unwell, 230 of their siblings and 350 of their parents/guardians by providing holistic, bespoke care. To facilitate the care of even more children and their families and care givers, a new building was needed. Main build partners, 8build, undertake one charitable build project every year and were therefore recommended for the Ark project. Their unique collaborative approach and utilisation of supply chain relationships kept project costs low with these costs savings directly benefitting the hospice as they can then be spent on care for the children. The proect was guaranteed in January 2020.
