About the project:
The notable Bryan House building in Wigan is renowned for being the former home of Maximes nightclub, and the upper five floors have previously been used for office space. However, with the new development taking place, these upper five floors are to become one bedroom apartments with a stylish and urban exterior design and high quality fixtures and fittings throughout.
Our role in the Bryan House development project:
Here at Enviroply Roofing we will be installing the roof for the Bryan House building in Wigan. For this project, the Protan Vacuum Roofing system has been selected. This is a unique roofing system that is perfect for fast installation and uses mechanical fasteners only around the perimeter areas, not the central roof area. Instead, the roof design uses wind forces to hold the Protan membrane in place, which means that for windy areas, or for storms, full protection and durability can be counted on.
For this installation we will be installing the Proton Vacuum System EX Fleece Backed Single Ply Membrane to meet the manufacturers requirements and guidelines. This will be paired with Protan SE membrane perimeter flashings, which will be adhered to a membrane coated metal upstand, as well as Protan 90mm refurbishment roof drains and Protan weathering to outlet drains through raised roof upstands and existing mushroom vent/pipe/anchor points. Protan step flashings will also be installed from the raised roof to the upper roof. The roof will be completed with a Protan vacuum vent and collar.
The Protan vacuum vent and collar is one of the most important aspects of the roof build as the system is specifically designed so that when the wind blows, the air in the space between the Protan membrane and the air-tight structural roof deck will be sucked out of the system through the Protan vacuum vents’ one-way air valves. This creates a vacuum that holds the Protan membrane in place for complete protection, stability and durability.
