Project Brief:

The council then specified a new cold installed Pro-Therm Insulation and Proteus Pro-System® seamless waterproofing Built-Up Roof.

The communal walkways were also to be included in the programme carried out by the licensed contractor and overlaid with the cold-applied Pro-BW® (Reinforced) system.

Key Requirements: High Performance Waterproofing

The roofs were allowing water ingress and required a low maintenance waterproofing overlay. The drainage detailing was changed by removing one perimeter kerb and introducing an external gutter system, therefore blocking off problematic internal down-pipes. Proteus Pro-System® does not have any joints and minimal maintenance is now required on the roofs.

Key Requirements: Health and Safety

The roofs have a timber deck structure and detailing, support beams as well as other potentially flammable building materials which meant the use of the cold installed Proteus Pro-System® Built Up Roof removed the risks posed by heat or open roof torch flames; protecting operatives, building occupants and members of the public.

Key Requirements: Long-term Performance

Proteus Pro-System® offers a low maintenance, durable waterproofing and protection solution to a range of buildings. Proteus Waterproofing roof systems come in a range of 10, 15, 20 and 25-year options.

Key Requirements: Quality Control

Proteus Waterproofing and the licensed contractor worked in close partnership to successfully deliver the project to a very high standard.
