Sika Trocal for student accommodation

Sika Trocal for student accommodation

In the heart of Edinburgh city centre, a new 272 bedroom student accommodation block has been topped with 1,500m2 of Sika Trocal waterproofing membranes to provide a watertight finish for a green roof area and a number of terraces. Designed by Ziggurat Student Living and built by Ogilvie, Murano House utilises the highest specification in accommodation design and strikes a balance between private and sociable spaces.

With many of the new roof areas set to be overlooked by neighbours, a neat and attractive finish was a key requirement. The mechanically fixed Sika-Trocal S and loose laid SGmA systems proved to be the optimum roofing solution, offering a smooth and rapid installation, excellent flexibility and crisp, simple detailing. Appointed as roofing contractor for the project, MBM Group installed 1,200m2 of Sika Trocal’s Type S roofing membrane across 80% of the total roof area.

Quick, lightweight and economical to install, the mechanically fixed Type S system allowed MBM to secure the membrane and the insulation with a single, strong and reliable fixing to reduce costs and time on site. Suitable for mechanically fastened roofs in both new build and refurbishment applications, Sika-Trocal Type S is one of the most rapid and economic systems to install. It also offers exceptional waterproofing and durability, and is approved by the British Board of Agrément (BBA) to have a life expectancy of up to 35 years.
