The Diocese of Brentwood

Millane Contract Services

The St. Anne Line Church in South Woodford was founded in 1966 and is part of the Diocese of Brentwood.

The Challenge
The church had recently benefited from a new extension to the rear, and an aesthetically pleasing green roof system was required to complete the project. The green roof was to be applied to a new build timber deck, and would also include roof lights and insulation.
the solution –

Hibbs and Walsh Architects specified an Extensive Green Roof System from Sika Liquid Plastics, as the practice had previous experience of Liquid Plastics’ products. The full system consists of a Vapour Control Layer, Decotherm Insulation, a Carrier Membrane, a Decothane Root Resistant waterproof membrane, Biodrain, Filter Fleece, Sedum Substrate, and finally a pre-grown Sedum Blanket. Decolight roof lights and roof edge trims were also installed.
the benefits –

Liquid Plastics green roof system is completely cold applied, therefore there is no requirement for any heat or naked flame on the roof. The Decothane waterproof membrane is proven to resist penetration by even the most aggressive roots, cures to provide completely seamless waterproof protection, and is certified by the BBA to last 25 years. The completed green roof system offers an aesthetically pleasing finish that is also kind to the environment, and can further help to insulate the roof. Furthermore, because the system was installed by one of Sika Liquid Plastics’ Quality Assured Contractors, a Single Point Guarantee could be issued covering both materials and labour.
