Roof Refurbishment, Bracknell Forest Homes

For three residential 1960s block of flats in Bracknell – Hambledon Court, Campion House and Hurley Court – the client required a new waterproofing system due to the existing felt system ageing and not meeting the current Building Regulations Requirements for thermal performance.

Product brief:

Following detailed surveys by Proteus Waterproofing on each of three towers, Bracknell Forest Homes Ltd specified Proteus Pro-Felt® built up roof system to overlay 3300m2 of roof systems, meeting their budgetary and thermal performance requirements.
