Hyflex tops off Newcastle high rise

Built in 1970, the city centre Bewick Court had an existing roof which has been exposed to over forty years of weathering and was in need of a facelift.  To fully waterproof the surface for client Places for People within the tight eight week deadline, the Hyflex specialist team recommended the Triflex material due to the quick curing process which was essential in certain areas of the work.

Chemical and UV resistant, the cold liquid applied reinforced waterproofing system was applied direct by rollers.  Suitable for all common roof build ups, Triflex is extremely weather resistant and is compatible with the majority of substrates.

The roof of the 65 metre high building is home to a large number of satellite dishes and communication receivers which along with the confined space under the existing plant room made the application of the Triflex system very challenging. Demonstrating a high standard of workmanship, over 554 m2 of detailed work was completed on time and within the client’s agreed budget.

The new roofing system was delivered to an exceptional standard, ensuring a fully bonded totally waterproof system that will serve the building for many years to come. High-performance materials, outstanding workmanship and the expertise demonstrated by Hyflex have ensured that the new high quality roof met and exceeded the client’s demands.

Gloucester Cathedral – Jan 2010

Liquid waterproofing specialist, Hyflex, has completed a series of complex detailed waterproofing works to gutters and other areas at Gloucester’s historic cathedral.

Hyflex was appointed by architects, Steinborn & Taylor, who specified a liquid waterproofing system as the most suitable solution to seal the detail areas where decay and water ingress issues had arisen.

A programme of ongoing repairs and refurbishment continues to take place at the Cathedral with a full time stone mason repairing existing gargoyles and creating new additions over a number of years. The gargoyles themselves form part of the rainwater system with the gutters cut out and prepared for a new lead shute to be dressed, though the parapet wall and into the gargoyle. Working in phases over a 15 year period, Hyflex has applied its own Hyflex 15 waterproofing to the complex detailed gutter areas running parallel behind the cranellated parapet walls.

Allan Southall, Hyflex National Sales manager said: “This project really does demonstrate the versatility of liquid systems being able to meet a broad range of demands. From heritage buildings such as this, to modern and new build, specifiers are increasingly recognising the many benefits that liquid waterproofing has to offer. Cold applied the system offers zero health and safety risks whilst offering a long product life as detailed in our British Board of Agrement Certificate.”

Liquid Applied Seal For London Hub Of Creativity – Feb 2009

National cold applied waterproofing specialist, Hyflex Liquid Systems, has finalised works at Shepherds Building, a contemporary London-based office development that has become home to many of the UK’s leading creative brands.

The iconic structure in Shepherds Bush, West London was built in the 1950’s and at the time of its construction it was the largest concrete frame building in the UK. Designed originally as a Royal Mail sorting office, it has now been transformed into a stylish and strikingly refurbished office scheme whose tenants include Endemol UK plc, Mulberry, Fox TV and National Geographic.

Hyflex has completed the 1673 m2 two-stage project, providing a cold applied liquid waterproofing solution across the entire roof area spanning the main roof, tower areas, walkways and landings.

Overlaying the existing roof materials (once investigated and secured), Hyflex used their own Exemplar liquid waterproofing system to provide a watertight sealant. The system was specified for it’s many benefits including speed and ease of application – it is also provides an inherently safe  waterproofing solution being cold applied with very little addition of dead weight  on the main flat sectors of the roof. More importantly, Hyflex Exemplar has the ability to successfully waterproof the many complex detail areas on the roof, including the extensive range of dormer roofs.

In addition, the hard wearing and durable Exemplar Balcony and Walkway System was applied both as a surfacing and a waterproofing solution to the central staircase, and related balconies and walkways of the building. The whole project was completed during a 4-month period for roofing contractor, BriggsAmasco, the scheme was considered a huge success.

Allan Southall of Hyflex said: “The Shepherds Building has been carefully brought back to life to an exacting high standard, attracting numerous national and international market leaders. The attention to detail was key to the success of this scheme and the Hyflex waterproofing system proved to be the perfect solution to sealing and securing the roof for years to come.”
