An exceptional level of detailing was required due to the complex exoskeletal steel framework and with the superior aesthetics of the finish a key factor, Sarnafil was specified for the flexibility of the product, in terms of colour, detailing and grantee options.

Due to the size of the project, 27,200m2, a Sarnafast system was used to increase the speed of the roof installation without compromising the quality, and the Sarnafil single ply membrane was welded with a Sarnamatic 661 automatic welder for consistent quality. The roof build up was unusual; a metal deck was installed first to which a plywood deck was fixed. The Sarnafil membrane was then installed to ensure watertight finish. This combined with the experienced work force of Prater, made installation quick and efficient, passing all the stringent

Andy Newman of Prater commented: “We have worked with Sarnafil for many years now; we both have exacting standards, with health and safety of paramount importance and a commitment to providing the best products installed by experts. The finished result is one that all involved can be proud of and one that will shelter football fans from the elements for many seasons to come".

The membrane was manufactured in a special colour RAL 7040 to meet the architect’s requirements and to match with the colour of other roofing products used.
