Lytag® LWA screed at the Savoy.

The famous Art Deco doors of London’s Savoy Hotel were closed in December 2007 for the most expensive hotel renovation project in British history to date. The hotel will reopen this summer.

The 120-years old building on The Strand has been completely stripped back and with such a huge restoration a series of small obstacles have had to be taken care of and corrected. This included the need for some lightweight floor screeds.

To aid with this part of the restoration project Lytag ltd supplied bagged lightweight aggregate in nominal 12.2kg bags, which is equivalent to approximately 25kg of normal weight aggregate.

The use of Lytag® LWA in screeds can reduce the dead weight by up to 50%. The weight reduction of the material in small bags also assists with manual handling.

The bags were supplied on pallets containing 59 bags. Each pallet produces approximately 1m3 of finished screed.

Lytag® lightweight aggregate (LWA) is widely used throughout the UK in floor and roof screeds giving lower densities, improved thermal and acoustic insulation and uses less cement than traditional cement sand screeds.
