Requirements:

The design architects required a complete peace of mind waterproofing system for green roofs, planted courtyards and plaza areas.These roofs and gardens cover a total of 18,000m2 and are situated above highly sensitive areas including patients rooms-hence the requirement for a high quality , long term waterproofing system.

Solution:

Due to the implications of water ingress Sarnafil G 476-20 (2mm) was selected to waterproof all planted areas. Sarnafil G 476-20 provides long term roof resistance as well as having a proven track record,both in Australia and internationally, making it an obvious choice for such a prestigious project. Installation by a Licensed Sarnafil Applicator ensured a watertight project was delivered.
