18 months prior to installation, Dan Crowley undertook a series of meticulous site surveys and condition reports. Working in collaboration with Architects, Pozzoni Architecture Limited and BDP Limited, they designed and specified the standing seam roof system to create the central atrium, the new-build roof on the gym and the refurbished existing flat roof sections.
Garland UK’s R-MER LOC standing seam metal system was specified for the new atrium roof, where details of the numerous double actuated roof lights and siphonic drainage gutters were easily accommodated due to the flexibility of the system. Expertly installed by Garland approved contractors, Valent Roofing, the R-MER LOC system also ensured easy access and walkways to maintenance staff, to safely carry out any cleaning duties in the future.
For the existing flat roof sections, the White-Knight polyurethane liquid waterproofing system was the perfect solution for refurbishing the roofs. Due to the nature and installation requirements of White-Knight, the majority of the existing system was overlaid, with only 20% of the 3,500 sqm roof being stripped and a new system installed, saving the client a lot of time and money. The liquid systems were installed flawlessly by Hardisty, a long term approved contractor of Garland UK.
The roof for the new-build gym building had originally been designed with the falls in the deck. Technical Manager Dan Crowley identified a better solution, where instead the falls were included within the StressPly Signature bituminous membrane system, resulting in a £100,000 saving for the client.
