The new Alumasc Euroroof waterproofing system has been installed on nine refurbished roof areas at Brownmead Primary Academy in Shard End, Birmingham.
Educational Support Services West Midlands (ESSWM) commissioned Alumasc to perform a detailed site survey of all flat roof areas. This revealed that the original system integrity was seriously compromised, with deterioration across the roof areas, and recommended how this could be remedied within the site specific specification.
ESSWM appointed approved installer Clarendon Roofing to refurbish 1,200m2 of existing roof areas with Alumasc’s Euroroof BUR (built-up roof) waterproofing system to deliver high-performance waterproofing and a fully engineered Cut to falls insulation scheme.
Internal drainage locations to be refurbished with the Roof Pro PRODRAIN refurbishment RWO (Rain Water Outlet).
Providing immediate protection against water ingress into the main hall, classrooms and kitchen below:
The Alumasc Cut to falls 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.
Clarendon Roofing then applied the Euroroof waterproofing system, which comprised a Hi Ten Universal Torch-applied underlay and Euroroof MG4 capping sheet.
During the material installation the areas of potential risk, up-stand to cladded elevations, were identified and detailed in a “Flame Free” manner to mitigate potential risk – as set out in the Alumasc “Flame Free” policy document.
Scott Timmins, ESSWM Managing Partner: “From the outset, Alumasc have been excellent. The thoroughness of their initial site survey and the design solution they proposed were impressive, and the quality of the work undertaken by their approved installer, Clarendon Roofing, was first-rate”.
Ashley Winters, Head Teacher at Brownmead Primary Academy: “I am delighted we now have a brand new waterproofing system which will help protect the school from the elements for years to come. Importantly, even though some of the work had to be undertaken during term time, there was no material disruption to the safe and efficient running of our school either”.
