Roofing system specified for historic apartment block refurbishment

  • 8 Jul 2015

Hampton Court and Richmond Court are two historic apartment blocks, located in Birmingham. They have recently undergone a £2.9m refurbishment for the city’s council.

As part of the project, the buildings’ old roofs were stripped back for structural assessment to determine whether a World War II bombing had caused any lasting damage.

After the results were assessed, Alumasc’s Derbigum roofing system was specified for installation.

The client had requested to increase the falls present on the main and lift motor room roofs and their architect recommended the product after having used it in previous successful installations.

Alumasc’s Derbigum Mineral roofing system has been used in the recent refurbishment of Hampton Court and Richmond Court

800 square metres of Derbigum Mineral was fitted to both buildings’ roofs by Brindley Asphalt, Alumasc’s registered contractor.

The company also supplied a vapour control layer and a full polyurethane insulation scheme to be used in conjunction with the system.

At 4mm thick, Derbigum Mineral offers UV resistance and a life expectancy of around 30 years.

The flat roof membrane system also boasts a protective BBA approved mineral finish, eliminating the need for any additional surface coating.

In addition to this, it can significantly improve the U-values of a building.

After installation, the system was dressed to minimise the appearance to the external façade. Alumasc’s Skyline polyester powder coated aluminium coping system was also fitted to assist in concealing the perimeter parapet.
