Bromyard House, London
Bromyard House, is an iconic building redeveloped into residential apartments in Acton, London.
It required extensive refurbishment to the penthouse terraces, involving reinforcing of the plywood decks and new waterproofing. The challenge of the roof refurbishment required a flat roof system manufacturer involved at the initial roof survey and specification design stage, followed by extensive technical back-up to assist with unforeseen and unexpected situations to ensure a successful installation of the new roof systems.
High Performance Waterproofing
The roof terraces demanded a waterproofing system with BBA certification to ‘0’ falls and BROOF(t4), the highest achievable fire rating for flat roof and balcony waterproofing systems. The fully bonded and seamless Proteus Cold Melt® was selected in conjunction with replacement of the combustible timber decking to a new, non-combustible porcelain tile finish. To minimise inconvenience to the residents, Cold Melt® is a no odour waterproofing system. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Client and the Proteus Approved Contractor to ensure the installation complied with the specification design.
Health & Safety
Safety on construction sites is always of the utmost importance, as well as keeping disruptions to other trades to a minimum. Proteus Waterproofing - Cold Melt® was selected for its high performance, phased cold installation and seamless waterproofing.
Long Term Performance
Incorporating recycled rubber crumb and organically grown products, Cold Melt® creates an elastomeric, seamless, cold applied waterproofing membrane. The Cold Melt® system can include inverted roof insulation and, with or without insulation, can be designed as a paved, ballasted, green or brown roof. The membrane does not become brittle with age, is BBA Certified to last the design life of the roof and is manufactured in the UK.
