Upgrade of Flat Roof to Create a Warm Roof
at the Royal College of Art
Long-term problem with damp in the 8th floor Seminar Room.
Repairs to the roof coverings failed to resolve the situation and we
discussed the possibility of condensation with the client. It was
agreed that the roof should be stripped back to the concrete deck
and recovered to include a vapour barrier layer and new insulation
to create a "warm roof" system beneath a multi-layer torch-on
system to provide a 15 year warranty.
The completed works have finally resolved the client's persistent
damp problem.
