Roof Refurbishment – Norway House, London
Norway House, the Ex Norwegian Embassy building that looks out over Trafalgar Square in London, required a new waterproofing system for the penthouse roof and dormer windows. The existing asphalt surfaces had reached the end of their serviceable life and the client requested a cold applied waterproofing system that would extend the life of the roof and provide robust detailing to the awkward dormer windows. Proteus Waterproofing was appointed to provide a fast, reliable and high-quality solution that would minimise disruptions.
Key Requirements: High Performance Waterproofing
As the existing substrate was still suitable to accept an overlay system, Proteus Waterproofing’s Approved Contractor installed Proteus Pro-System® Plus to the rear elevations dormers before new slates were installed to the pitched roof. Proteus Pro-System® Plus was then used to lap onto the slate details, fulling encapsulating the dormer tops and cheeks. Proteus Pro-System® Plus is UK made and was chosen for its low odour, cold applied, seamless application. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Approved Contractor to ensure the project was successfully delivered to a very high standard, providing the client with a long-lasting solution
