Bridgend County Borough Council’s 40 year-old Celtic Court building has received a valuable new lease of life from a fully integrated Alumasc waterproofing system along with multiple products from Alumasc Exterior Building Products; external wall insulation and render from Alumasc Facades, and rainwater goods from Alumasc Rainwater.
The local authority renovated the building for use in partnership with other public bodies after the old waterproofing system had deteriorated significantly over the years and received multiple ad hoc repairs to extend its serviceable life.
Bridgend Council selected Alumasc and its Carmarthen-based registered contractor Central Roofing to provide an effective, long-term refurbishment solution by waterproofing the roof areas of the building.
Central Roofing completely removed the existing waterproofing system back to the deck where repairs were carried out to the concrete & screed. They installed a new Euroroof vapour barrier to provide some immediate protection against the elements and fitted Alumasc
PIR insulation, incorporating tapered gutters to improve drainage. A fully engineered insulated felt render system was then laid, onto which they applied a non-penetrative Aluminium capping system.
New Aluminium rainwater downpipes were also installed, and the waterproofing project was completed with a Euroroof waterproofing system comprised of a felt underlay and Euroroof MG3/4 capping sheet.
Paul Avo, from Bridgend County Borough Council, said: “Alumasc and its installer, Central Roofing, have been excellent throughout. The thoroughness of the initial site survey and the design solution proposed were impressive, and the quality of the work undertaken was first-rate.”
