Terrace Refurbishment – Hyperion Walk, Horley

The communal first floor terrace of a residential property in Horley was failing, causing leaks into the property below and required refurbishment. With the terrace being located over a resident’s flat, a high performance and fully reinforced waterproofing system with a 20 year guarantee was required to take up any future structural movement. Due to the limited access, the solution had to be fast curing to minimise disruption to the residents. There was the additional challenge of the leaks not being detected due to the existing slab and cement build-up.

Product brief:

For a tough, durable, aesthetically appealing and skid resistant finish, the licensed contractor installed 150m2 of the cold-applied Pro-BW® (Reinforced)® system from Proteus Waterproofing. A fine aggregate in the skid resistant finish was added by Proteus to allow for an easy cleaning surface. Pro-BW® (Reinforced)®system also allowed complex detailing around perimeter upstands and outlets to be applied quickly and efficiently.

Key Requirement: Minimal disruption

Pro-BW® (Reinforced) ensured minimal disruption and inconvenience thanks to the fast curing system allowing foot traffic within TWO hours of installation. The use of Pro-BW® (Reinforced) also reduced the risk of further water ingress whilst works were undertaken, and ensured access to the terrace was reinstated quickly and efficiently.

Key Requirement: Health and Safety

As it is cold installed, Pro-BW® (Reinforced) meets health and safety criteria by minimising risk to site operatives and local residents. Pro-BW® (Reinforced) also offers a low-odour application to provide the safest and most convenient solution on site for the licensed contractor.

Key Requirement: Quality control

Proteus Waterproofing and the licensed contractor worked in close partnership to successfully deliver the project to a very high standard within the required timeframe. The specialist contractor removed the existing build-up, levelled off the existing substrate and then made the area watertight with DPM Primer before the Pro-BW® (Reinforced) was applied.
