Polyroof brings thermal performance to Container City

Polyroof brings thermal performance to Container City

As the inverted roof insulation at Container City was unable to provide satisfactory thermal performance, leading to excessive fuel bills during winter, Polyroof was called in.

The buildings at Container City in the London Docklands are constructed from old shipping containers that have been refurbished and then fixed and welded together, creating an innovative modular building solution that houses offices.

The roofs had been waterproofed with an EPDM membrane as part of an inverted roof design, however due to failings within the roof coverings leaks were occurring. Protec Warm Roof System was specified for the roof refurbishment works.

The work began by stripping away the old inverted roof components and the failed EPDM membrane to expose the metal roofs of the containers below. A self-adhesive vapour barrier was then laid onto the metal decks and Polyroof RES Insulation (T&G) was bonded on top using PU adhesive.

Lastly, the Protec system was laid direct to the insulation boads to create a seamless, smooth and long-lasting finish that came with a 20 year insurance backed guarantee. This striking piece of upcycled architecture now has a roofing solution to match the innovation behind its creation.
