    A New Roof for Stonehenge


    This stunning single ply roof, featuring the
    Alwitra EVALASTIC® mebrane from ICB,
    was specified for the new Stonehenge
    visitor centre.


    When it came to choosing the roof waterproofing, long
    term performance and reliability were crucial, but equally, sustainability and environmental sensitivity were of the utmost importance.


    Alwitra EVALASTIC® from ICB, proved the ideal solution for waterproofing the complex canopy roof. Designed by architects Denton Corker Marshall and built just 1.5 miles from the world-famous heritage monument, construction of the new Stonehenge Visitor Centre started in
    July 2012 and was opened in December.


    “We specified the EVALASTIC® roof early in the project as
    the size of the Visitor Centre roof resulted in its specification becoming an item of much interest,” said Angela Dapper, Project Associate at Denton Corker Marshall. “We highlighted the environmentally friendly specification to our clients, the client advisory groups and numerous stakeholders, and there was no other material that matched EVALASTIC® V in its environmentally friendly make up.”


    EVALASTIC® is an outstanding roofing membrane,
    offering exceptional chemical resistance, low
    temperature flexibility and outstanding weather
    resistance. The inherent flexibility of the thermoplastic
    elastomer eliminates the need for potentially
    environmentally harmful plasticisers. This and the
    absence of PVC means Evalastic is one of the most
    environmentally friendly waterproofing membranes
    on the market and this has been backed up with the
    publication of a Environmental Product Declaration in
    accordance with ISO 14025.


    ICB licensed Roofing Contractor, Malone Roofing, was
    chosen for this important project and underwent specialist
    training at ICB’s headquarters in Poole prior to commencing the installation. Throughout the installation, inspections were carried out by ICB’s Quality Control Inspectors to ensure the work met the company’s exacting standards.
