Firestone Building Products (FSBP), the leader in EPDM roofing and lining systems, has helped Imperial College London to deliver a robust roof covering for the Wolfson Education Centre. Firestone Helps Imperial College London Make the Grade
Located at the Hammersmith campus, the building offers state-of-the-art facilities and a range of lecture theatres and seminar rooms.
The existing asphalt roof of the Wolfson Education Centre had reached the end of its serviceable life.
Water had begun to leak into the building, demanding a durable roofing solution that could be installed quickly.
Firestone’s 1.5mm RubberGard EPDM was specified to refurbish the 300 sq m roof and overlay the existing covering. The single-ply waterproofing membrane was installed by contractors, Tunbridge Wells Roofing Limited, along with new rigid PIR insulation to eliminate potential issues with condensation.
Designed for flat and low slope roofs of commercial, industrial and residential buildings, RubberGard EPDM is a resilient roofing membrane with an unmatched resistance to ozone, UV radiation and extreme temperatures. Containing no plasticizers or flame retardants, its characteristics remain stable and unchanged over time, and requires little or no maintenance.
As RubberGard EPDM is lightweight and doesn’t require any sophisticated or costly equipment, the membrane is also quick and easy to install. Speaking about the project, Paul Gilden from Tunbridge Wells Roofing Limited, said: “We’ve carried out many roofing projects at Imperial College London using RubberGard EPDM. We know we can rely on the product to deliver a highly effective waterproofing solution with the added benefit of extensive support from Firestone’s technical services team.”
