Cambridge Mosque… Case Study

Posted on

Cambridge Mosque aims to be Europe’s first eco-friendly mosque by incorporating specialised design features to minimise carbon emissions. Additionally, the project’s award-winning London Eye architect, Marks Barfield Architects, worked closely with world renowned sacred geometer, Keith Critchlow from The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts in London, to include architectural elements from both traditional Islamic architecture as well as the surrounding city of Cambridge in the design. Moy Materials were delighted to be involved in the build where the mosque will accommodate a congregation of 1,000 worshippers, as well as state of the art teaching areas, meeting rooms, a morgue, a café and an Islamic garden designed by Emma Amina Clark. 

Moy specified the Paralon Total Roof System, under our uniquely design acoustically considered tapered insulation schemes, which has been tested as an assembly by the BBA to offer the client a long-term, single-point guarantee for the full system which gave the client complete peace of mind for many years to come.

Premier Inn Chesterfield

We are pleased to showcase this complex project, comprising various roof types in Chesterfield. Delivered for our valued client, Blade Roofing Ltd, Bradford, this dilapidated building was suffering from multiple points of water ingress through aged waterproof coverings. An array of internal and external flashing details; items of plant equipment; and a series of substrate types including lead, asphalt, bituminous felt and newly installed timber, required a specialist solution to address isolated sections of poor thermal performance in tandem with full-roof, long-term waterproofing integrity

Working closely with the client’s management team, we agreed a best-fit specification for a roof refurbishment solution, utilising our Enkopur cold-applied liquid roof system including specialist detailing to critical zones. A thermal upgrade was specified over one roof area to improve the building’s thermal performance. The introduction of our Paratorch PIR Insulation improved thermal performance to fall in line with current building standards, improving the internal condition of the spaces below.

Products used: Enkopur cold-applied warm roof system comprising Imper Sticker 3mm VCL, Paratorch PIR Insulation (adhered) and Enkopur fully reinforced, cold-applied waterproofing

Roof area: 1600m2

We are delighted to showcase this stunning project on the coast of Rothesay in Scotland, delivered for Historic Scotland in conjunction with a private Building Surveying firm. This historic building was suffering from multiple points of water ingress through aged felt coverings. Detailing to hand rail posts and low-standing clerestory windows were of particular concern.

Working closely with the client’s Surveyors at Cushman & Wakefield, we agreed a best- fit specification for a roof refurbishment solution, utilising our Paralon Total Warm Roof System (BBA certified as an assembly) with Enkopur cold-applied liquid detailing to critical zones. Red slate chippings from our Paralon membrane were cast into the wet Enkopur resin to provide a consistent finish to this iconic building.

Products Used:

Paralon Total Warm Roof System comprising Adevapor torch-top VCL; Imper Sticker 3mm VCL; Paratherm G tissue-faced PIR Insulation; Paratherm T bitumen-faced PIR Insulation; Paralon 77 3mm base layer membrane; Imper Sticker double-fil base layer membrane; Paralon ARD/HS ‘plus’ cap sheet; Imper Sticker ARD self-adhesive cap sheet; Enkopur cold-applied liquid waterproofing

Roofing Contractor: Briggs Amasco Ltd, Aberdeen

Moy Materials were asked by our valued client, a private practice Surveying firm based on Scotland’s East Coast, to carry out a comprehensive condition survey of an aged, leaking PVC single ply roof over this building adjacent to Aberdeen’s busy Union Street.  Various tears and punctures through the membrane had led to wide-spread instances of water ingress and necessitated a total roof refurbishment.

The presence of slates and live gas pipes required us to build a specification in keeping with the NFRC’s Safe2Torch guidelines, isolating sensitive areas with cold-applied alternatives to our otherwise torch-applied warm roof system.  Access arrangements were also difficult meaning a clever delivery and unloading structure was required.

Our technical team worked closely with our approved Roofing Contractor to iron out the complex specification, which included an array of product solutions to secure long-term protection over the client’s building, backed by a long-term single point guarantee.

FM Global approved and BBA certified, our Paralon Total Warm Roof System is suitable for both new build and refurbishment applications.  The range of Paralon solutions are also suitable for cold roofs, inverted roofs and a range of other uses including podium decks, car parks and balconies.

A range of surface finishes, including a maintenance free granular surface and an anti-root option, make this system ideal for withstanding foot traffic associated with maintenance.
