Nayland House, Balcony Refurbishment

Project brief

At an eight storey, 1960’s built apartment block in Bromley, exposed conditions had left the original asphalt balconies in poor condition. With evidence of cracking and blistering allowing water to penetrate the structure, a high performance refurbishment solution was required.

For a long lasting finish that could be easily cleaned by the residents, the licensed contractor Roofing And Construction Ltd installed 300m2 of the cold-applied Pro-BW Flex system from Proteus Waterproofing. The new system offered a fast application for client Phoenix Housing, whilst meeting the residents’ demand for minimal disruption as access to each balcony is through flats.

Key Requirement: Minimal disruption

Pro-BW Flex ensured minimal disruption and inconvenience thanks to the fast curing system allowing foot traffic within 2 hours of installation. The use of Pro-BW Flex also reduced the risk of further water ingress whilst works were undertaken and ensured access to the balconies was reinstated quickly and efficiently.

Key Requirements: Health and Safety

As it is cold installed, Pro-BW Flex meets health and safety criteria by minimising risk to site operatives and local residents. Pro-BW Flex also offers a low odour application to provide the safest and most convenient solution on site for the licensed contractor.

Key Requirement: Quality control

Roofing And Construction Ltd and Proteus Waterproofing worked in close partnership to successfully deliver the project to a very high standard within the required timeframe.

Key Requirement: Long term performance

Pro-BW Flex offers 10, 15 and 20 year durability options, with the aluminium oxide aggregate forming a durable and skid inhibiting finish. Also available with independently provided insurance.
