Kemper facilitates roof refurb at Gatwick Airport

Kemper facilitates roof refurb at Gatwick Airport

When the existing flat roof above the International Departure Lounge at Gatwick Airport’s North Terminal was failing, Kemper System’s liquid applied waterproofing was the first port of call. Working closely with contractors, Mitie Tilley Roofing Ltd, to develop a sound waterproofing solution, Kemper System’s Stratex Warm Roof system was specified using its solvent-free Kemperol 2K-PUR liquid waterproofing as part of a full refurbishment of the 2,500 sq. m roof area.

Severe water ingress into retail and restaurant units below meant the project was time critical to prevent any further issues as well as potential loss of profit for retailers. Chosen for its odourless, quick application and versatile qualities, the fleece-reinforced, liquid waterproofing system by Kemper System meant contractors could adhere to the strict timescales and operational restrictions on-site.

Demonstrating first-class delivery within a live airport environment, Mitie Tilley Roofing Ltd and Kemper System won an award in the Liquid Applied Roofing and Waterproofing category for their work on the project at the annual NFRC (National Federation of Roofing Contractors) UK Roofing Awards (May 2017).

Warren Stuart, aviation director at Mitie Tilley Roofing Ltd, said: "Having installed Kemperol before, we knew it was quick and easy to apply as well as versatile and durable. Its wet-on-wet application meant possession times on-site were also decreased. We worked closely with Kemper System’s technical team during five months of planning prior to work starting, and throughout the project. Thanks to the highly experienced and knowledgeable team, we were able to successfully deliver on time and within budget.
