When Stirling County Cricket Club switched home to a stunning new setting overlooked by Scotland’s national Wallace Monument, aesthetics and budget were key priorities for the new club pavilion. The successful delivery of those priorities has since been recognised with a Civic Trust Award for Best New Building 2003-2007.
The club’s new base lies in the heart of a beautiful conservation area and it was crucial that the materials used for the roof reflected the traditional character of the area. The solution was products which delivered the appearance and performance of a traditional lead roof with zinc metal detailing.
Rhepanol fk, the world’s most advanced roofing membrane from FDT, was selected for the 400 sq m low-pitch roof of the clubhouse. Rhepanol was Europe’s first single-ply membrane waterproofing system and today, more than 70 years later, remains a market leader in terms of flexible waterproofing, quality, value, longevity and performance, with unmatched environmental credentials.
Key sections of the roof were picked out in MCM Rhepanol metal to highlight the building’s architectural features. MCN panel systems were used extensively to provide a high quality finish for the soffit, fascia and feature details.
FDT developed its PIB-based MCM system to provide a standing seam effect on a full metal build-up, while providing the outstanding waterproofing capabilities and longevity of FDT’s flagship single-ply roofing membrane.
So, if anyone is lucky enough to hit a six, the membrane system will prove itself up to the task for decades to come.
