Walkway Refurbishment, Gossops Green & Furnace Parade, Crawley

Gossops Green, a block of residential flats, located in Crawley above a parade of shops required refurbishment works to the communal walkways, as the existing asphalt had reached the end of its life and required a new waterproofing membrane.

Product brief:

Proteus Waterproofing’s Pro-BW® Plus was specified as the client requested a fast curing waterproofing system.

Key Requirements: Quality Control

As the top floor flats had a linking bridge which formed the only access point to the parade of shops, speed of application was critical to allow the residents to have access. Pro-BW® Plus is a fast cure, cold applied waterproofing system, which offers a return to service within two hours from installation and therefore kept disruptions to a minimum for the residents. Low level gas pipes had to be moved to allow a robust termination point to the brick work of the flats. To ensure the project was completed to a high standard Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Proteus Approved Contractor.

Key Requirements: Health and Safety

When working on communal walkways which may also form the fire escape route, the waterproofing system needed to be cold applied and fast cure. Using Pro-BW® Plus removed the risk of fire to the building and the low noise application allowed the Proteus Approved Contractor to complete the work safely and meeting all health and safety criteria.

Key Requirements: Long Term Performance

Pro-BW® Plus is a high performance, rapid curing protective waterproofing membrane for balconies and walkways making it ideal for refurbishment where structural movement has occurred. Pro-BW® Plus reduces installation time from days to hours. Suitable for a variety of external applications, Pro-BW® Plus can be installed on concrete & asphalt for communal and private balconies,walkways, staircases and pedestrian ramps. As it is a cold applied installation, the system meets health and safety criteria by minimising risk to both operatives and members of the public. Pro-BW® Plus is BBA Certified and made in the UK.
