A detailed visual and physical inspection, together with core and moisture probe analysis carried out by IKO on the roof, patio and walkway areas, indicated that the waterproofing membrane was in a condition commensurate with the age and the type of the traditional membranes installed. They had become fragile and brittle. The decks were saturated due to water ingress, and natural ageing had played a principle part in the deterioration of the waterproofing system. The build-up would not have met the requirements of the current building regulations Part L. IKO worked to refine the specification for the main roof,

One solution to the problem was to extend the existing revetment construction, but this would have required large volumes of excavation with increased times and cost. It was therefore decided to adopt a minimal excavation of the toe area only, infill with a rock layer and fully grout using IKO Bituminous grout. This resulted in a flexible bituminous bound slab, which would follow the future settlement and scour of the toe, thus preventing undermining of the sea wall revetment

Plot 700, Winnersh Triangle (Carbon Neutral)

IKO PLC

This project was a new build, the main contractor specified the need to house a roof/plant room area at the top of a new office block. Originally, it was thought that a Single-Ply, warm roof installation would be the best solution. However, when consulting with IKO about the main requirements for the roofing solution, both pre and during installation, IKO Permaphalt was the obvious choice due to the speed of installation and the robust nature of the materials that would be used and in an inverted roofing situation, potentially last the lifetime of the building.

School Roof Receives Much Needed Fire Protection and Waterproofing

IKO PLC

Walker Primary School was opened in 1953 as a one-form entry primary school with seven classes. Over the years, due to its popularity, it has grown and new buildings have been added. Due to the structural design of the building, the roof trusses once exposed meant that the roof changed from one roof to several individual roofs with their own drainage and design issues which meant that each roof had to give its own tapered scheme for each area, which in some cases had to work in tandem with the abutting roof it was next to.
