The innovative development, built by Miller Construction for the Hazledene Group, is split between 13,000m² of high quality office space and the Park Inn Hotel which comprises 185 bedrooms and fitness facilities. With environmental considerations at the forefront of the challenging architectural design, the roofing system had to provide more than just traditional protection from rainwater.
The architects specified the durable and self-healing monolithic waterproofing membrane Hydrotech MM6125 from Alumasc which proved ideal for a development with such complex roof details. The roof incorporates outdoor space, balconies and high level step terracing accessible from the hotel, in addition to a flat roof area housing large quantities of roof-top plant.
Faced with these split level challenges, BriggsAmasco’s specialist team installed a total of 3500m² of Hydrotech MM6125 with the bituminous rubber blend allowing fast and efficient installation over the complex roof details. This was followed by the installation of extruded installation boards and a range of ballast including 20-40mm River Washed Pebbles and 50mm Natural Paving Slabs.
The first hot-melt waterproofing system to be introduced to the UK construction market, Hydrotech MM6125 boasts a respected performance record spanning 45 years. It is manufactured using 20% post-consumer recycled material and is certified to ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Standard. Insulations used as part of the Hydrotech system carry a BREEAM ‘A’ summary rating as well as Zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than 5.
With Aberdeen being at the forefront of the international oil industry, BriggsAmasco played a significant part in this high profile development setting the standard for quality, design and sustainability that benefits a city in the world spotlight.
