Tectofin RV, WOLFIN’s homogenous fleece-backed single ply roof and waterproofing membrane, has been specified for the conversion of an office block in central Chester.
Comprising 64 apartments that overlook the nearby racecourse, major works were needed to convert the old office block into the new hotel Roomzzz Chester.
Construction by The Broadley Group involved a new Metsec inverted pitched steel frame being added over the existing concrete flat roof deck to create an additional floor to the building.
The Broadley Group had to ensure the membrane they incorporated had excellent stability and handling features and worked closely with contractor Karl Austerfield Roofing to design and build the perfect solution.
WOLFIN says the key benefit of choosing the Tectofin single ply system is that it quickly becomes weather tight and for this office block renovation, this meant that the internal work could continue without interruption.
Karl Austerfield, from contractor Karl Austerfield Roofing, commented: “The Tectofin RV has excellent temperature and weather resistance. This made the product easy to handle, but because it also stays flexible throughout the colder months, any maintenance needing to be carried out in later years will be equally stress-free.”
Roomzzz Chester is the latest generation of the Aparthotel group and opened at the beginning of April. Tectofin membranes are fully recyclable and meet the requirements of DIN V 20000-201. In addition, Tectofin RV complies with DIN V 20000-202 and meets the requirements of BBA.
