The Siobhan Davies Dance Studio, London - Pro-System® Plus

The Siobhan Davies Dance Studio in London, an artist-led organisation that advances the art of dance and choreography, required a new cold applied, seamless waterproofing membrane.

Product brief:

As the existing GRP had reached the end of its useful and serviceable life, Proteus Waterproofing installed Proteus Pro-System® Plus, extending the life of the structure by a further 20 years.

Proteus Pro-System® Plus is a high performance, cold applied, seamless waterproofing covering, therefore greatly reduces the risks an open flame roof torch would pose.

Key Requirements: High Performance Waterproofing

Firstly, the roof area was prepped with Pro-Epoxy Primer, a primer designed for excellent adhesion of Proteus Pro-System® Plus and outstanding water resistance and corrosion protection. Bond break tape was specified
to the joints to facilitate free movement. Proteus Pro-System® Plus was then applied, incorporating Pro-Force, a reinforcement matting. The application was completed by applying the Proteus Pro-System® Plus
Top Coat.

Key Requirements: Overcoming Challenging Factors

opening hours. As a school is located next to the studio, the client required a
low odour system, making Proteus
Pro-System® Plus the ideal waterproofing membrane. The system needed to be
liquid as the substrate was not conventionally straight and incorporated
awkward detailing such as the step-down box gutters and windows. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely
with the Proteus Approved Contractor to complete the project to a high
