Much of the £30million mixed-use Advocates Close development, in Edinburgh’s Old Town new is now roofed with Protan single ply membrane, because of its flexibility to accommodate roof types whilst delivering the quality required for the World World Heritage site project that has won the 2014 RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Prize.

Several of the new and refurbished listed buildings which now provide a hotel, apartment block, offices, bars  restaurants and cafés with a new pedestrian thoroughfare.

These feature warm roofs created from Protan G single ply membrane for ballasted roofs laid over Protan VB250 vapour control layer, Protan AM membrane, and Protan F2B protection fleece.

Project architect Gavin Lloyd, of Morgan Mcdonnell:  “We have a mix of flat roofs, balconies and terraces; some of the roofs required to be ballasted, others with different types of paving. We specified single ply membrane for its flexibility and relative ease of application in a variety of shapes and areas; Protan’s products could be used in a number of situations, so satisfied our needs whilst meeting the contractor’s requirements too.”

Protan G membrane, as with all Protan membranes, is certified to deliver, and potentially surpass, the energy efficiency requirements laid down in Approved Document L, and, under the Green Guide, achieve a A rating.
