TPO Deck 2

New Construction. Viking Enviroclad TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) (Carlile) 1.5mm Grey.
To 2nd storey deck area, to be built over with a floating timber deck finish.
The upstands were done first, due to the project’s management decision to undertake the cladding first, and to avoid damage to the membrane.
Perimeter Balustrade yet to be installed.
