Project: Spring St
Address: Spring Street, Rishton, Blackburn, BB1 4LP
Architects: TADW Architects
Contractor: Watson Homes
Roof size: 526m2
Roof system: Sika Sarnafil Single Ply Roof, S327-15EL, Sikatherm PIR AL Insulation, Sarnavap 500E SA Vapour Control Layer
Installation: Mechanically Fixed

Project overview:

This project involves building 59 new affordable homes on the former Bridgefield and Britannia Mill site on Spring Street in Rishton, near Blackburn. These will be divided into 35 houses and 24 apartments for affordable housing, adjacent to the Leeds and Liverpool canal.

Our role in the project:

As part of this project, we will be creating an entirely new roof. The roof deck will be installed which will be made from plywood, mechanically fixed into position using screw fasteners or galvanised annular ring shanked nails.

On top of the new roof deck, we will then install the vapour control layer, in order to meet the humidity requirements and classifications of the project. As a result, we will be using the Sarnavap 500E. This is a top quality, non-decaying, flexible option for the vapour control layer that will offer a high-water vapour resistance which is perfect for this project.

For the next stage, we will be installing the insulation. For this we will be using Sikatherm PIR AL Insulation Boards. These are insulation boards that are faced on both sides with aluminum foil. For best results, these boards offer a high level of strength, as well as a very low level of thermal conductivity.

For the final stage of the roof build up we will be installing a Sika Sarnafil S327-15EL Single Ply Membrane in lead grey. This is a Single Ply Membrane option that has a proven performance and is designed to last a long time. Made from high quality polyester reinforced polyvinyl chloride (PVC), this membrane will provide a high level of UV resistance and flame retardant, as well as being fully weatherproof.
