Liverpool’s iconic Marwood Tower has been redeveloped by Liverpool Mutual Homes in partnership with principal contractor Willmott Dixon Housing and John McCall Architects.
A single storey extension was built to provide 81 apartments for the over 55s, complete with courtyard garden, bowling green and outdoor gym.
One of the key elements of the build is the roof, executed by Churchmore. The existing asphalt roof was stripped and replaced with a new vapour control layer, insulation and mechanically fixed 350m2 Protan SEI.2mm standard overlap dark grey single ply to the concrete slap, by the advanced roofing technology specialist.
Dave Dobson, Willmott Dixon project surveyor observed that Protan membrane offer a lightweight and efficient construction technique, which lent itself well to the constraints of operation on the roof of a 15 storey tower. He also added that the flexibility of Protan’s membrane also allowed for the weathering details to tie in nicely with the cladding.
Protan SE is developed to cope with even the most extreme weather conditions without detriment as it is certified to ≤ -30° and it available in 1.2mm, 1.6mm and 1.8mm.The membrane also achieves durability in excess of 30 years, being hot-air welded at joints and mechanically fixed to the roof with air leakage controlled/minimised in line with latest Building Regulations.
Achieving an A+ rating under the Green Guide and being certified to deliver, and potentially surpass, the energy efficiency requirements laid down in Approved Document L, the single ply membrane is part of Protan’s comprehensive, quality offering which includes green and protected roofing solutions.
