Protan single ply membrane at Olympia

A major refurbishment of Olympia London, including Protan SE1.2mm SE single ply membrane for the grand hall roof, will enable it to function for many years as one of Europe’s top exhibition venues.

The 100+ years-old Grade II listed building is undergoing a major refurbishment, the latest element being the refurbishment of the North Elevation and Apex roofs.

The north elevation of the 35m high iron-framed barrel roof covering has been overlaid by main contractor Heartfelt Roofing, using 1600m2 of Protan SE1.2mm SE single ply membrane.

Nick Herridge, managing director at Antony Patrick Associates: “Protan single ply has already been used in the upgrading of the South Elevation; this was an influencing factor on its use for the North Elevation. The project has to be completed in a very tight timeframe to minimize disruption to the busy show schedule. The Protan membrane isn’t the cheapest solution, but gives us the quality and durability we need, reinforced with reliability of supply and speed of installation.”

The project was completed whilst the hall below was still in use, also further balancing issues of access and site safety, and completed with a 12 week timeframe.
