Rising Demand for Liquid Screed Peterborough

Peterborough’s population has grown by a massive 28% since the census was last taken in 2001. This makes it the UK’s 4th fastest growing city and a runaway success story for Cambridgeshire. The reasons for its success could be the fact that it’s a crossroad city, between London, the North, the Midlands and East Anglia. Peterborough’s location has attracted many of the major logistics and haulage businesses to the area.

Population growth on the scale of that seen in Peterborough requires serious attention to housing development across the city. The local plan is to build 21,315 homes by 2036. This requires substantial house building year on year in order to achieve the target. 2018 saw the commencement of a 5,350 development at Great Haddon, 16% of which have been designated as affordable housing.

Liquid Screed Peterborough for Underfloor Heating

The underfloor heating market is set to grow by 8%  in 2019 according to recent growth forecasts. It’s popular with young families purchasing new build properties. They’re looking for the design freedom afforded by the absence of radiators, and the dust-free, even heating provided by radiant heat.

Liquid screed is a perfect component for wet underfloor heating installations. Its liquid consistency ensures that the screed hugs the water pipes, negating the possibility of air voids, and it’s designed for enhanced thermal conductivity. Even better, floor screed’s rapid heat response works with lower water temperatures, guaranteeing reductions on heating costs for homeowners.
