Project name: Stewart Fleming School
Client: London Borough of Bromley
Sub contractor: Byford Roofing
Solution: BMI Icopal Parabit Hot Melt Duo, BMI Sealoflex Liquid Applied Waterproofing
Demand for rooftop games areas in schools is rising due to an increased demand for school places, not matched by an increase in a school’s footprint. This led to the creation of a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) at Stewart Fleming School in central London. The MUGA required robust waterproofing suitable for a zero falls flat roof.
With limited space on the roof the hot melt had to be installed as quickly as possible, allowing the roof area to be used for storage of other materials whilst the project was completed.
The Hot Melt needed to provide a totally flat surface for the application of the sports surfacing. This meant accuracy in installation of the insulation layer and the paving slab ballast.
“It had to be completely level to ensure the MUGA could be laid to the correct tolerances” Added Andrew Byford
To achieve a completely flat surface a paving support system was chosen that provided minimal build up with maximum support. Most of the 800m2 roof area was applied in an initial period of two weeks. In addition to the hot melt, BMI’s Icopal Sealoflex was used to waterproof around the fence posts and roof perimeter.
