Structural waterproofing system for the Aga Khan Centre

Structural waterproofing system for the Aga Khan Centre

Alumasc has provided the Hydrotech MM6125 Structural Waterproofing system for the new R1 building.

R1 Kings Cross became the new home for a number of institutions founded by the Aga Khan, which aim to increase understanding of Islam in communities around the world.

Alumasc’s Hydrotech MM6125 structural waterproofing system has had zero product failures in over 50 years of use worldwide. Its unique formulation guarantees lifetime performance and it is manufactured using 30% post-consumer recycled material. Hydrotech is fully warranted, BBA accredited and has European Technical Approval ETA05/0152.

For Kings Cross R1, Alumasc’s system comprised Hydrotech with XPS insulation to insulate and prevent moisture from entering the roof. Hydrotech is a hot melt rubber bitumen membrane which is heated and combined with a polyester reinforcement and protection sheet to form a weatherproof layer. Through prevention of weathering, the roof will remain intact for a lifetime.

A truly unique finish was achieved with R1. The Hydrotech system was completed with decorative marble and stone, allowing for a contemporary appearance without any compromise to the performance of the system. This ornamental finish provides a clean and modern look to the North London building, the likes of which have been rarely installed before.
