One of the world's most advanced single ply roofing manufacturers, Alwitra, hit the right note for the internationally renowned Coliseum which is set to re-open early in 2004 after a £41 million restoration and refurbishment scheme.

Originally built in 1904 and now home to the English National Opera, the Coliseum in London's St Martin's Lane has benefited from considerable work to the auditorium, front of house areas and renewal of services. Essential improvements have also been made to the stage and back of house together with the external facades. A stunning glass barrel roof has also been installed to the front of the building.Alwitra's Evalastic "environmentally friendly" PVC, chlorine and halogen free single ply membrane was specified for the flat and domed roof areas at the Coliseum as part of the project. It is again testimony to one of the world's most advanced singly ply roofing systems - regularly specified for some of the most demanding and prestigious projects.

Alwitra's Evalastic membrane has become a popular choice amongst ecologically conscious architects and building owners who demand superb waterproofing as part of an environment friendly system. It is a truly green alternative to traditional single ply membranes with no compromises on performance. Evalastic performs brilliantly in tests for flexibility at low temperatures and weather resistance, easily coping with climatic temperature change without damage.

Able Waterproofing was responsible for overlaying 1000 SqM of mastic asphalt with Evalastic membrane as part of the roof specification designed by London architects, The Arts Team. Alwitra's membranes are 100% bitumen compatible, which means encapsulating existing roof surfaces is easy, alleviating the problems and costs commonly associated with stripping and removing of failed materials.

Alwitra's range of membranes sits at the heart of the company's "Ultimate Roofing System", exclusively available from ICB (International Construction Bureau) of Bournemouth. Installation can only be carried out by licensed, fully trained and experienced roofing contractors who work nationwide.

The Alwitra package incorporates absolutely every component for the most exceptional single ply roof specification, including roof lights, green roof systems, building integrated photovoltaic systems, edge trims, standing seam detail, roof outlets and more. Every Alwitra roof is protected by a comprehensive guarantee to give cover for up to twenty years.
