Equestrian Centre Oxford Encapsulation with Solar Installation
PROJECT LOCATION: Chinnor, Oxford
PROJECT SIZE: 640 m2
DURATION OF PROJECT: 14 days
This building was being refurbished for use as an equestrian training centre. Our client was having solar panels installed on the building and so they wanted a waterproofing system that would work alongside the solar installation. A liquid solution was ideal for this project. Our challenge was to coordinate our services alongside the installation of solar panels in phases, providing a hassle free solution for the customer.
After initial meetings with the other contractors onsite, and programs of works were examined Elite waterproofing liaised with the solar panel installers and carried out staged works alongside each phase of their installation.
External works: Firstly we cleaned the surface with a biocide to remove moss and live growth. This was followed by our “full preparation” including hand detailing of the roof, bolt heads, roof lights and protrusions .Next the solar brackets were fitted and we detailed and waterproofed these. Finally we completed a full encapsulation of the roof with an instant set spray applied liquid waterproofing system.
Internal Works: A highly reflective liquid coating was spray applied to the underside of the roof. Providing full encapsulation and allowing much more light internally.
Without the need for removal, The client received a waterproofed roof with encapsulation benefits, plus a solar installation and greatly improved visibility internally. Seamless cooperation from all of the contractors involved, Backed with a 10 year Guarantee.
