The latest in an award-winning new generation of mental health hospitals is using advanced roofing technology to achieve a durable, quality building for the future.
A key element of Mersey Care NHS Trust??s £25million, 80-bedroomed Clock View is its focus on single storey buildings around courtyards, with all the areas roofed using single ply membrane. Richmond Roofing, for main contractor Farrans, utilised almost 7000m2 of Protan SE1.8mm single ply, mechanically fixed over a vapour control layer, to construct the facility??s roofs.
Protan SE membrane is certified to deliver, and potentially surpass, the energy efficiency requirements laid down in Approved Document L, and, under the Green Guide, achieve a A+ rating.
Established some 75 years ago, and still privately-owned, Protan is one of the top three membrane manufacturers in Europe. Manufactured at the company??s headquarters in Norway, Protan has roofs that have been in place for 30+ years without performance-affecting degradation. A full support service, from NBS specification and in-house CAD design through to technical advice is provided from Protan UK??s Warrington office.
