GlaxoSmithKline, Stevenage – West Car Park

The refurbishment of the multi-storey car parks at the headquarters of Britain’s biggest pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKlein (GSK), required a durable, trafficable and non-slip waterproofing covering for the concrete decks which could be applied with minimal downtime and during harsh winter weather.

Product brief:

For the East and West Car Parks, Proteus Waterproofing provided 4200m² of the Deckmaster System R for this high profile client. The specification for the Proteus Licensed Contractor also had to provide line and car park bay marking and a contrasting colour finish to the access ramps.

Key Requirement: High Performance Seamless Waterproofing:

Ideal for multi-storey car parks and podium decks, Deckmaster System R is a cold applied, high performance waterproof covering that combines high rubber content and other organically sourced materials. This waterproofing system provides seamless leak protection, high levels of abrasion and wear resistance, and high bond strength adhesion.

Designed to deal with vehicle traffic, particularly at heavy impact areas such as the access ramps, Deckmaster System R complies with BS EN 1504-2 as a protective waterproof coating.

Key Requirements: Quality Control

The existing coating was stripped off and the exposed concrete blast tracked and remediated where necessary. The project was completed with a layer of Deckmaster UVR, offering advanced levels of UV and chemical resistance. Proteus Waterproofing worked in close partnership with the Licensed Contractor to successfully deliver the project to a very high standard in just 12 days.

Key Requirements: Durability

Deckmaster System R has a service life in excess of 20 years, the British made Deckmaster System R is available in a range of specifications for car park roof decks, intermediate decks and basement deck
