Stay City Apart Hotel
As an impressive feature in the Manchester city skyline, the stunning and contemporary Stay City Apart Hotel required a roof that was every bit as unusual and eye-catching as the overall building design.
The Hotel is located on Mason Street and provides 224-bed apartments with 48 one bedroomed and 176 studio apartments. This 8 Storey building also has a café, reception, laundry, and a gym.
Our role within this project was to install a Sika Sarnafil Single Ply roof system. MSDL Management Ltd, who was the main contractor for this project opted for a S327-15EL membrane, which is known for its longevity and durability. We mechanically fixed it into place to ensure that there would be no movement or lifting. This also meant that the roof would be low maintenance for the duration of its lifespan, keeping facilities management costs down.
For the Vapour Control Layer, we installed the Sika Sarnavap 500E by loosely laying it onto the concrete substrate. This particular VCL can provide a high level of water vapour resistance, is non-decaying, flexible and has a long-life span.
We used tapered insulation system to create falls and appropriate roof drainage, so this varied in depth at all different points across the roof. We then finished the roof with a membrane coated drip edge trim for the parapet, and flashing was glued and welded to trim for seal.
The roof was electronically tested for damage to ensure it met legal requirements, and was well received by the client, who can now benefit from a low-maintenance solution with a 25-year guarantee, helping keep facilities management costs down with long-lasting reassurance.
We worked closely alongside the Main Contractor who opted for a Fully Adhered Single Ply roof system. We used the Sika Sarnafil G410-15EL Membrane which we adhered into place.
For the Vapour Control Layer, we utilised the existing waterproofing by using the existing felt.
We installed 120mm Tissue Faced PIR Insulation which we laid in a staggered bond pattern. This particular insulation has low thermal conductivity which helps to keep the building warmer ultimately lowering energy bills. In addition it is very light weight meaning that no extra strain is put on the roof.
The project was completed ahead of schedule and met the manufactures requirements for a 25-year guarantee.
