Resin-based car park decking solutions developed by Deckmaster, part of the Resdev Group of Companies, have been providing safe and secure car parking surfaces for over two decades.
When Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Chester needed to complete a total refurbishment of an unusually shaped exposed roof deck, they chose Deckmaster’s System R car park deck waterproofing and wearing course system.
The exposed roof covered an area of 6,000m2, with the job specification covering extensive concrete repairs incorporating cathodic anodes, rust inhibition and anti-carbonation coatings, replacement of movement joints, repairs to the existing asphalt deck and overlaying using the Deckmaster System R waterproofing and wearing course system.
Accreditation to BS EN 1504-2 was an essential element of this task, and Deckmaster had to demonstrate the track record of their systems. The work was carried out by Car Park Coating Ltd (CPC), specialists in new build and car park refurbishment projects and responsible for some of the most prestigious car park projects across the UK.
CPC worked closely through CBRE to complete the entire job within a 6 week contract period. With the car park built on a radius wedge shape, the potential for movement was significant, so CPC and Deckmaster combined a set of membranes and joints to meet these very specific challenges.
Deckmaster’s unique DPM primer means that work with System R can progress even during the winter months. The primer can be laid on damp substrates, which means that application schedules are far less weather dependent. The project was completed using Deckmaster’s light stable, compatible line marking system.
