Upgrade of Flat Roof to Create a Warm Roof at the Royal College of Art

  • Print

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.
