Challenging Operation at
Scarborough General Hospital

after applying Gaco liquid roofing.


The original flat theatre roof at Scarborough General Hospital in Yorkshire had deteriorated over the years to the extent that it was beyond basic repair and had to be replaced. Normally, with the many solutions now available, replacing a flat roof is a simple task.

However, as the roofing contractor, Dewhurst Industrial Solutions, was to find out, this was far from a normal re-roofing job.

This job provided many challenges. There is a lot of plant on the roof, ducting and ventilation shafts as well as an asphalt substrate which had been scattered with 10 mm limestone whilst the asphalt was still wet.

To make matters more challenging, the roof had to be replaced without disrupting normal theatre operations. This raised serious concerns over not polluting the air intake units feeding the operating theatres, which were in full use during works.

Because of the complexity of the roof layout, it was agreed that a 100% liquid applied silicone system was the best solution.

However many liquid roofing products have a lot of solvent added, which could be pulled into the ventilation system - a major problem that would have meant closing the theatres.
