Roofshield, the unique vapour and air permeable pitched roof underlay has been chosen as part of an exciting new golf centre extension at Carnoustie Golf Links.
The new two-storey building will include a state-of-the-art golf practice and training facility with magnificent views over the golf course. Ogilvie Construction began work on the project in February 2017 with completion due by December 2017, ahead of the Open Championship’s visit to Carnoustie in July 2018.
For more than 21 years the Roofshield name has been synonymous with the highest quality, providing a pitched roof underlay, which is both air and vapour permeable. Recognised as one of the highest performing roofing membrane solutions, it has become the preferred choice of architects, developers and contractors. Tony Bowe site manager for Ogilvie Construction explains his reasons for the selection of Roofshield. “We chose Roofshield because of its superior quality and breathability, assuring protection for the new buildings at Carnoustie.”
Many vapour and air permeable underlays use an airtight VP film layer to achieve their performance, whilst Roofshield’s patented SMS (Spunbond Meltblown Spunbond) structure allows high levels of airflow, in addition to the transport of moisture vapour, making the formation of condensation in the roof space virtually impossible. It has an extremely high degree of vapour permeability, as well as air permeability, so will still perform in conditions in which air tight alternatives will not.
It has long been recognised that the correct management of moisture vapour within buildings is an important aspect of ensuring the longevity of not only the building fabric, but also the health of the occupants.
This prestigious project will provide an impressive new facility for the local community, and will be open to all members of the public.
For any building to have an energy efficient, healthy, moisture free building envelope there is a clear need to manage the balance of Heat, Air and Moisture movement (HAMM) throughout the building’s life cycle from design, construction, completion and use.
