Our feature project for January is the High Kingsdown residential development in Bristol. Here, TCRC were recently selected to install a complete roofing and waterproofing solution from Garland UK.
After removing and responsibly disposing of the existing waterproofing and chipboard deck, TCRC Operatives installed a new 18mm OSB substrate incorporating tapered gutters throughout. We then installed Garland’s Stressply Flex BUFR System, including Safe2Torch detailing in all fire-risk areas, and upgraded all existing rooflights using Whitesales products in order to meet the requirements of Part L. Elsewhere, we installed new stainless steel soil vent pipes and drainware in key areas, along with extended marine plywood soffits, fascias and drip details.
Despite several logistical challenges, all works were completed within programme and budget, providing the residents with a leak-free roof along with reduced heating bills thanks to the enhanced thermal performance of the new waterproofing system.
