Bauder Hot Melt System
The refurbishment of office space in the city centre of Leeds. Landscaping around the site to transform an existing podium car park into a landscaped deck and a new scheme to compliment the updated entrance.
The existing slab was not level, so prior to beginning the waterproofing, Protech had to flood the slab with hot melt to level the surface. As this was a refurbishment project, the installers had existing planters and upstand details to overlay. Outlets had to be replaced and the system fully sealed.
Access to the rest of the site for other trades was through the main working ground. This resulted in some accidental damage. To solve this challenge, the waterproofing was tested and re-patched continuously and the results reported to the client to keep them fully informed and reassured.
The location of the project is Leeds City Centre restricting site access. To ease this challenge, contractors were arriving to site early in the morning to avoid rush hour traffic and minimise the impact on surrounding businesses.
