Belfast city hall Roofshield installed in roof refurbishment

In 1888 Queen Victoria gave Belfast the title of city and it was generally agreed that a new city hall was needed to reflect this change in status. Belfast City Hall opened its doors on the 1st of August 1906 during a great time of prosperity for the city.

Costing less than £500,000 to build, it was designed by Alfred Brumwell Thomas who won a public competition with his classical renaissance design and was constructed by the local firm of H & J Martin.

Due to re-open during 2009 Belfast’s historic city hall is undergoing both internal and external refurbishment.

As an integral part of the roof refurbishment Architects Consarc Design approved the use of ROOFSHIELD high performance breather membrane and the main contractor Grahams of Dromore appointed roofing contractor D.Harkin Roofing Ltd to carry out the installation.

ROOFSHIELD is manufactured in the U.K. and marketed by The A. Proctor Group who for over 40 years has been serving the Construction Industry with an extensive portfolio of technically advanced Membrane, Acoustic and Thermal products.

The result of a 5 year intensive research and development programme and ten years market experience gives ROOFSHIELD its unrivalled pedigree when used in pitched roof applications. It is the highest performing triple laminate vapour permeable roof underlay available on the market today.

It has excellent water hold out properties and carries two British Board of Agreement Certificates for use in warm BBA96/3220 and cold BBA99/3648 pitched roofs without the need for provision of expensive ventilation to the roof-space.
