Christie’s Auction House, London

Product brief:

Christie’s Auction House in London required refurbishment works to several glass block skylights due to leaks that had occurred around the seals of the glass. An added factor was the location of the skylights being in a roof well area providing little air circulation and with a lot of windows adjacent. Therefore, any system used required to be low odour. Proteus Waterproofing specified Proteus Pro-System® Plus and Pro-Glaze PU to meet the client’s low odour requirement.

High Performance Waterproofing:

The units were first cleaned and degreased, then Pro-Glaze PU was applied across the units. This clear, elastomeric polyurethane coating allows the lights to continue to pass through & into the building, yet at the same time providing waterproofing to the units. To complete the system and give the client an aesthetically pleasing finish, Proteus Pro-System® Plus was installed onto the concrete frame. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Proteus Approved Contractor to ensure the project was completed to a high standard.

Health & Safety:

When working on occupied buildings, safety is always of utmost importance. As Proteus Pro-System® Plus is cold installed, low odour system, it kept all disruptions to a minimum, meaning the auction house could continue to operate below.

Long Term Performance:

Proteus Pro-System® Plus offers a low maintenance, durable waterproofing and protection solution for a range of new build and refurbishment applications. Once cured, provides a completely seamless waterproof protection and has excellent UV stability, making it suitable to use in all climates.
