Alumasc has supplied its Euroroof SupaGOLD roofing system to London Metropolitan Police Authority’s Quicksilver Patrol Base.
A total of 2,200m2 of the SupaGOLD waterproofing system was specified by Vinci Facilities following numerous historic patchwork repairs to the existing system.
The company commissioned Alumasc to perform a site survey of all flat roof areas, who determined that the original system’s integrity was seriously compromised, with high levels of ponding, standing water and leakage to the main roof area.
The company advised its SupaGOLD waterproofing system as a suitable replacement that would fulfil the requirement of being independently insured for up to 20 years.
Approved installer TR Freeman was appointed to install Alumasc’s Euroroof SupaGOLD Warm Roof System to ensure that effective water management was maintained across the surface of the roof and eliminate the ongoing problems of standing water.
The waterproofing system also included the installation of Alumasc bespoke roof lights to replace the originals.
Prior to the installation of Euroroof SupaGOLD, appropriate surface preparation was undertaken to provide immediate protection against water ingress into the main building and offices below.
The Alumasc cut to falls (tapered) scheme was designed to enhance and overcome the existing design falls to each respective roof area. The design brief for the drainage plan was to utilise the existing drainage locations, remove standing water from all roof areas and meet the target u-value of an average 0.18W/m2K.
The Euroroof SupaGOLD waterproofing system, comprising a vapour barrier, PU bonded PIR Insulation SUPA XL Underlay and capping sheet, was then installed.
