The installation was carried out by Weatherwell, in conjunction with the project’s main contractor, Vinci.

Specified in Slate Grey, the Type S waterproofing membrane ensured that any detailing, such as capping vents or curved cone features, was achieved. All edge cappings were manufactured from Sika-Trocal Metal, instead of standard powder coated copings, to provide a neat finish.
