Project: Harrogate Convention Centre
Structural Waterproofing System: AlphaGuard Blueshield Inverted Roof System
StructureCare was engaged to install 1,500m² of AlphaGuard Blueshield structural waterproofing to the podium slab concrete up-stands prior to the installation of various new surface finishes. To protect the convention centre against water ingress the project required a combined waterproofing solution that would not only be effective but would also be able to cope with the complex detailing and on-site challenges. Blueshield PmB was selected as the ideal solution.
AlphaGuard Blueshield is a rapid curing, two-part, spray applied, durable corrosion protection & waterproofing material. The high performance system is 100% polyurethane, containing no fillers or additives and is VOC free. Once applied, Blueshield PmB has exceptional bond strength to all commonly used substrates, has a life expectancy in excess of 30 years and holds British Board of Agrément approval.
Removal of the existing surfacing was undertaken followed by surface preparation of the concrete decks. After preparation was complete the substrate was sealed with Blueshield PmB primer to enhance the adhesion of the subsequent membrane. Once the primer had cured the Blueshield PmB was spray applied to all areas. Due to the membrane being spray applied potential weak spots are eliminated such as, seams, joints and fixings. The Blueshield PmB provides our clients with a completely homogenous, seamless waterproofing solution.
To ensure StructureCare ‘get it right first time’ we undertake strict quality control measures. These include concrete moisture and temperature checks, air temperature reading and film thickness tests carried out throughout application which helps to ensure the required thickness is achieved.
