Showcasing our expertise
Designed to be the tallest residential building in Bristol, and sitting on the largest urban green space in the City, Castle Park View will certainly be an interesting landmark for the city centre. Working with client Bouygues, since July 2020, Optimum are enjoying their involvement in such a prestigious project in our home town. Built on the site of a former ambulance station, this 26-storey tower and 10-storey block will provide 375 homes through a mixture of Build to Rent and affordable housing as well as a business centre, concierge reception and leisure facilities and will keep all departments busy through 2021.
The Fire Stopping team will be sealing the wall & floor penetrations in every area of the building. Our fire stoppers are also using a world-leading UL-certified 2-hour fire-rated, watertight sound suppressing expansion joint, in the Emshield DFR2 System. Imported from the USA, to meet the specific needs of the client on this innovative project. Featuring a traffic-grade silicone sealing surface on both the upper and lower faces, adhered to a fire-retardant impregnated foam backing. It eliminates the need for additional fire blankets, mineral wools, liquid sealants, cover plates, or other fire stopping materials and is likely to be one of just a few used within the construction industry across Europe. This system along with our experienced and accredited team members demonstrates our expertise and ability to meet the individual needs of a project regardless of size.
