Sika-Trocal have supplied their roof system for Pembroke Learning Campus in Pembrokeshire.
Their single-ply Type ‘S’ was the ideal membrane for the project, providing a modern, failsafe solution.
Specified by award-winning RIBA architects, Austin-Smith Lord, and installed by contractors, Bouygues UK, the slate grey Type ‘S’ membrane was required to cover a roofing area totalling 4,874 m².
As well as the vastness of the project itself, the biggest challenge for Roofing contractors, Darlington Bros Ltd, was incorporating heavy plant material within the design.
This was overcome thanks to the Type ‘S’ membrane’s superb flexibility allowing for the retrofit of complicated details.
The membrane was mechanically-fastened to the PIR insulation board. Sika-Trocal Type S-Vap 500E provided the system’s high-performance vapour control layer.
Bouygues UK, said: “This was a huge, prestigious project and one that required a product known throughout the industry for its adaptability as well as its strength and reliability.”
“Sika-Trocal’s Type ‘S’ is in a field of one as far those properties are concerned. It made simple, comfortable work of a potentially challenging installation.”
“The ease with which the Type ‘S’ membrane was installed, coupled with the contractor’s skill and diligence, meant the new school building was covered with a smart, watertight roof that will withstand the rigours of time and the elements for many years to come.”
