VMZINC compact roof for Wyre Forest Crematorium

A standing seam roof in VMZINC QUARTZ-ZINC PLUS® has been used in Howl Associates’ design of Wyre Forest Crematorium in Kidderminster. It consists of a series of ‘floating’ roof forms separated from walls with frameless clerestory glazing. Acoustic considerations were a prime concern due to the proximity of an adjacent industrial estate, major road and rifle range. Zinc, with its Green Guide A rating and compact roof build-up, was selected to deal with the complex geometry of the main chapel and used alongside green roofs on the site maintenance building.
