Sika-Trocal rounds of student accommodation

Sika-Trocal rounds of student accommodation

A robust and high performance waterproofing solution has been specified from Sika-Trocal for the new £30 million state-of-the-art student accommodation at Bangor University in Gwynedd.

The St Mary’s student village development at the university has been designed by architect FaulknerBrowns and includes five new residential blocks or townhouses, along with a café and bar, sports and fitness centre, a shop and launderette facilities.

Working with main contractor Vinci, Weatherwell Roofing installed 4,300m2 of 1.5mm thick Sika-Trocal Type S in Slate Grey at each townhouse. The entire roof build up consisted of an S-Vap 500E vapour control layer, 140mm Kingspan insulation, and the Sika-Trocal Type S waterproofing membrane.

The versatility of the Trocal Type S waterproofing membrane ensured that any detailing, such as capping vents or curved cone features were achieved and met the architect’s aesthetic vision. To provide a neat finish, all edge cappings were made from Sika-Trocal Metal rather than standard powder coated copings.

Kristian Lewis, Weatherwell Roofing said: “The Sika-Trocal Type S membrane was ideal for the project and met the architect’s vision both in terms of sustainability and aesthetics. The Type S membrane is a great product and offers speed and ease of installation which was key to this short build programme.”

With this impressive new student village now complete and welcoming a new intake of students, the application of the Type S waterproofing membrane has ensured a swift and efficient installation that will offer high performance and waterproofing resilience for the long term.
