Roof Refurbishment, Royal Herbert Pavilions, Woolwich

The Royal Herbert Pavilions in Woolwich is a Grade II listed former Military Hospital which was built in 1865 and considered to be one of the great modern hospitals of its time. Having cared for wounded soldiers from the Boer War, through WWI and WWII, the Royal Herbert Hospital closed its doors in 1977 and was subsequently developed and converted into luxury flats in 1995.

Product brief:

As part of external refurbishment to the external façade stone and brickwork, Proteus Waterpoofing was appointed to provide a fast, reliable and high quality solution which would line the Victorian guttering channels while scaffolding was still in place. Following a thorough inspection by Proteus Waterproofing, the company’s Pro-System seamless overlay was installed by the Proteus Licensed Contractor to extend the lifespan of the channels.

Key Requirement: Quality control

Due to the historical importance of the building and complex nature of the roofs, Proteus Waterproofing worked in close partnership with the Licenced Contractor to successfully deliver the project to a very high standard without any disruption to residents of the building.
