Bauder keeps Scoil Phadraig pupils safe from the blasts of the Atlantic

Bauder keeps Scoil Phadraig pupils safe from the blasts of the Atlantic

A new €5 million building for Scoil Phadraig National School in Westport, Ireland has got the perfect protection from the nearby Atlantic Ocean with Bauder roofing.

Scoil Phadraig provides education to over 300 children. The constant increase in pupil enrolment called for a new building, not long after the school’s 2006 opening. Funding for the work came from the 2015 School Building Programme, through the Department of Education.

The meteorological factors that come from facing the Atlantic were one of the major challenges on the project. With high winds and storms occurring frequently, the new building had to be waterproofed rapidly in order to allow other trades to progress and to keep in line with the building programme schedule. Consequently, the plywood decking of the building was immediately installed with the Bauder DS1 DUO vapour control layer making the building weathertight.

Bauder approved contractor, Priority Roofing, installed the 2300m² roof areas with the mechanically fastened Bauder Thermofol PVC system which provides a high tear resistance waterproofing membrane and a strong fixation system to resist the high wind loads of the area.

Aesthetics also being paramount for this project, careful attention was given to the detailing of the upstands. Vertical pitches and decorative profiles at 460mm centres were also installed, disguising the laps of the Thermofol membrane and ensuring a stunning finish to the building.
