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