Hollywell Court, Eastbourne

Hollywell Court, a luxurious apartment block overlooking Eastbourne sea front required a new waterproofing membrane for the terrace and entrance roofs as the existing single ply had failed due to poor detailing.

Product brief:

As the roof areas had different requirements, Proteus Waterproofing specified Proteus Pro-System® and Cold Melt® providing the client with a cold applied, cost effective, waterproofing solution.

Key Requirements: High Performance Waterproofing

Cold Melt® was chosen for the terrace roofs as the existing single ply still formed a suitable surface to receive an overlay. Pro-Prime® SA and Pro-Carrier membrane SA were applied onto the single ply, followed by an application of Cold Melt®. Two coats were applied to the upstands to ensure full coverage. Cold Melt® UV Top Coat was finally applied to any exposed details to protect them from UV damage.

As the entrance roofs would be exposed to the elements, Proteus Pro-System® was the ideal waterproofing solution. The roof was stripped back to the timber joists and a new timber deck installed. Pro-Prime® SA and Pro-Carrier Membrane SA were then applied to the timber deck and upstands. Finally, Proteus Pro-System® was applied to all surfaces, providing a completely seamless, robust

Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Proteus Approved Contractor to ensure the project was completed to a high standard
