Anderston Phase 5, Glasgow

Client: Taylor Wimpey
Architect: Aedas Architects of Glasgow
Contractor: BriggsAmasco
Type of works: supply of Alumasc's Hydrotech MM6125 structural waterproofing.

Hydrotech MM6125 structural waterproofing from Alumasc has been chosen for Glasgow’s latest landmark building in a major regeneration project.

Designed by Aedas Architects of Glasgow, Anderston Phase 5 is a £56million mixed-use development from Taylor Wimpey. The impressive structure comprises 7 floors of office space spanning 98,000sq feet and a 20-storey residential apartment block, built on the former Anderston Bus Station site. Forming part of the fifth and largest construction phase of the Anderston regeneration project, the unique L-shaped building dominates the new Glasgow skyline and is one of the most prominent sights for users of the Kingston Bridge on Glasgow’s M8 - the busiest motorway bridge in Europe.

Alumasc approved installer BriggsAmasco were active in the specification of Hydrotech MM6125, which they recommended to the architects as a durable, more cost-effective alternative to mastic asphalt, and which also offered the benefit of not requiring a screed.

Anderston Phase 5 is constructed over several different roof levels, parts of which are used to accommodate heavy roof-mounted M&E plant. BriggsAmasco installed a total of 2,500m2 of Hydrotech MM6125 over the ballasted protected roof areas, resulting in a prime example of the design potential and aesthetics that a finished Hydrotech/protected roof can achieve.

Hydrotech is a durable, self-healing monolithic waterproofing membrane, which was the first hot-melt waterproofing system to be introduced to the UK construction market. The system boasts a respected performance record spanning 45 years, for use on protected roofs, plaza decks, green roofs, water features or access roadways.

Hydrotech’s unique formulation guarantees lifetime performance. It is manufactured using 20% post-consumer recycled material and is supplied under Alumasc’s ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Standard. In addition, the system is fully warranted, BBA approved and has European Technical Approval ETA-05/0152.
