Protech Put a Roof over the Heads of the Red DevilsJuly 18, 2013
Quite possibly one of the world’s most famous football teams, Manchester United are a globally recognised franchise with a prestigious history, and their Carrington training ground has long been acknowledged as one of the best in the business.
Which is why after the Eric Wright Group were entrusted with the construction and development of the training facilities, they only had one company in mind when it came to sub-contracting the roof work: Protech Roofing.
Following our detailed and high quality work at The Greenhouse in Leeds, Lloyds Data Centre in both Leeds and Halifax, and Sandal’s Asda store, Protech were a natural fit for the project. Working to plans drawn up by Sarnafil and Kingspan alongside architects FDG, we were brought in to implement the high specification waterproofing system. Full details of the project can be found below.
- Sarnavap 500 E vapour barrier loose laid
- Kingspan XPS tapered insulation, mechanically fixed into the concrete substrate with Sarnafil stainless steel fixings
- 18mm OSB3 structural timber, mechanically fixed as above
- Sarnafil G410-18EL membrane fully adhered to the OSB3
- Sarnafil G441-15 protection layer
- Install rubber crumb walkway system
The work we completed was required to last for over 40 years, with at least a 20 year guarantee, and was designed to be low maintenance and attractive to look at – new manager David Moyes’ office would be opening directly onto it, after all!
Before his departure at the end of the 2012/2013 football season, Sir Alex Ferguson himself even likened the £20 million development to buying a new player of similar value, explaining that:
“it could be our best signing”
Protech are pleased to have been part of such a project, adding to our prestigious portfolio of completed work, and believe the development demonstrates our capabilities the high standards we regularly achieve.
