The Roofline Group have enjoyed a long historical supply chain partnership with BAM, delivering many educational projects across the group and is pleased to confirm that they have secured the specialist waterproofing package for the new Living Systems Centre within the University of Exeter. Roofline has been involved from an early stage and has offered the design team advice on varying aspects of the waterproofing and interfaces. The waterproofing works are due to include approx 3000m² of hot melt structural waterproofing, bituminous membranes with sedum green roofing in particular areas.
The new centre on the Streatham Campus will bring together mathematicians, scientists and engineers in a bid to revolutionise the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of human, animal and plant diseases.
It will consist of two linked buildings on a split level site, with a tower block nine storeys high and a slab block reaching six storeys, three storeys being basement levels.
The building aims to achieve BREEAM excellent. A combined heat and power plant will allow the centre to create its own energy.
Works are due to be completed in spring 2016.
