A tried and tested system from SIG Design & Technology was used to overcome a number of specific challenges at Stopsley High School.
SIG and their manufacturer partner IKO Plc, engaged at very early stage to provide technical liaison between Interserve and the project architect to develop the correct technical and most cost-effective waterproofing solution based on the two elements of a robust detailed specification and a simplified roof design. This early intervention also meant that the roofing team could use the roof design support the challenging thermal compliance requirements of each project.
The largest roof measures 2500m2 and was selected for an inverted roof build-up using IKO’s PermaTEC Hot Melt with Dow’s X-Energy XPS insulation. The two lower, smaller roofs measure 1,200m2 in total and these comprise steel deck insulated with Rockwool’s Hardrock Multifix Insulation and waterproofed using IKO’s PreVENT Torch on Felt System.
As SIG Design & Technology is product agnostic, it was able to select the optimum mix of products needed for an integrated solution. Strong collaboration between SIG businesses continues to support smooth project development and total design support is provided to sub-contractors. Monthly site visits during installation ensure compliance to the specification and reduce the risk of future issues.
The HLR roofing project follows SIG Design & Technology’s unique ‘8 Steps’ protocol, from product selection and design expertise right through to full guarantees and planned maintenance. All products were sourced from SIG as Supply Chain partner to Interserve. The four schools are due to be completed in October 2016.
