Wallasey Ambulance Station
The original specification was too far out of the client’s budget who had no choice but to value engineer the project. Following a site survey Proteus Waterproofing established that the profile metal deck and insulation were in serviceable condition, however the existing felt was ageing and was in need of repair. In conjunction with the building surveyor, Proteus Waterproofing specified Proteus Pro-Felt® Ultima-Plus as an overlay system to the existing roof, this would increase the serviceable life of the roof and enabled our client to obtain the guarantee required.
High Performance Waterproofing
As the roof was in a repairable condition, a felt overlay was deemed the most suitable and cost-effective waterproofing solution for keeping to the client’s strict budget. As the roof had sufficient insulation to meet the minimum requirements the Proteus Pro-Felt® Ultima Plus could be overlaid onto the existing roof to extend its life expectancy, without the need to thermally upgrade the roof at an extra cost. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Proteus Approved Contractor, Construction techniques, to ensure the project was completed to a high standard.
