USL Deliver Specialist Waterproofing For Orbit Homes

St Anne's Quarter is a new residential & retail development in the heart of Norwich, inside the original city walls offering a selection of studios and apartments.

Located off King St, alongside the River Wensum which flows through the city and on towards Yarmouth and only a short walk from the city centre, the Riverside entertainment area and Norwich's main line railway station, it is both a convenient and attractive location.

 

4,000m² of Blueshield PmB has been used to waterproof the external podium deck areas that surround the luxurious housing development.

 

Blueshield PmB was chosen ahead of originally specified hot melt systems because of its outstanding qualities which include speed of installation, rapid cure, exceptional bond strength and detailing capabilities. Blueshield PmB is a two part, spray applied, durable corrosion protection and waterproofing material. The high performance system is 100% polyurethane, containing no fillers or additives and is VOC free. Once applied, Blueshield PmB has excellent crack bridging capability, a life expectancy in excess of 30 years and holds British Board of Agrément approval.

 Podium Deck

Unlike other specialist waterproofing companies USL StructureCare were able to offer the client the comfort of single point responsibility for the waterproofing element of the contract as Blueshield PmB is manufactured in-house by sister company Pitchmastic PmB. This unique offering avoids the all too common 'manufacturer and approved contractor' back to back guarantee, which, when issues arise, often leaves the customer having to determine whether material failure or installation is to blame.

ISG (main contractor) now specify the use of Blueshield PmB for all of their major structural waterproofing projects.
