One of the busiest buildings at the University of Dundee was able to benefit from a complete replacement of its waterproof roofing with Alumasc Derbigum Olivine roofing membranes.
The August 2018 project ran for six weeks and was completed on time, without any complications, after a thorough site survey to correctly identify the project needs.
During the survey, it was discovered that the roofing in place had exceeded its lifetime, and was in very poor condition.
After receiving specifications from Alumasc, the client decided to take the opportunity to install a high-quality roofing solution that would also contribute positively to the environment.
Derbigum Olivine membranes use a naturally occurring mineral upper layer that neutralises the most prevalent greenhouse gas via an irreversible chemical reaction when it comes into contact with rainfall.
