Showcasing award winning system at Expo in Dublin

 This weekend saw the 5th annual Architecture and Building Show at the RDS in Dublin. Bauder was there to exhibit a variety of flat roof systems including the BauderBLUE SuDS solution which won the Architect’s choice award last year.

The Bauder stand featured a stripped back display to show clearly the products used in a BauderBLUE system and the way in which they work together to attenuate storm water. An animation accompanied the build up to show how the system operates during wet weather, heavy rain and in a severe storm situation.

BauderBLUE system

The products used in a blue roof sit in layers above either hot melt or bituminous waterproofing. A typical build up would comprise: The BauderBLUE water attenuation system can also be upgraded with green and PV elements. Bauder has a unique solar photovoltaic (PV) mounting system, BioSOLAR, that is specifically designed to allow the combination of biodiverse green roofs and solar PV whilst having the ability to be installed atop the SuDS blue roof void construction.

The PV system utilises the green roof substrate as ballast removing the need for penetrating the waterproofing to secure the mounting units to the roof and ensuring that the entire roof area can be considered a biodiverse green roof. The void structure beneath allows free-flowing multi-directional water movement to specifically engineered outlets that restrict the total allowable water discharge to meet planning requirements.

To learn more about BauderBLUE, head to our blue roof section. Also, look out for our feature on blue roofs in Irish Building magazine next month.


Bauder returns to the Irish Architecture Expo 2019

Bauder will be returning to Ireland’s Architecture Expo on the 4th and 5th of October where we will be showcasing waterproofing, acoustic insulation and blue roofs.

The Architecture & Building Expo is a well-established construction and design exhibition which brings together the industry’s top architects, specifiers and other design professionals. The exhibition has more than doubled in size since 2014 which has meant expanding to the prestigious Main Hall at the RDS and will again run alongside the RIAI Annual Conference.

Join Martin Bermingham, Francie Thornton and Saul May, Bauder’s Irish representatives who have years of experience within the flat roofing industry having worked on numerous new build and refurbishment projects such as:
  • Scoil Phadraig: 2300m² new build project in Westport, County Mayo using Bauder’s Thermofol single ply system with acoustic insulation.
  • Oughterard School: 3400m² new build project in Galway using Bauder’s Thermofol single ply system with profiles.
  • Bord Gais Networks: 2900m² new build project in Dublin using our Bauder Total Green Roof System with soft landscaping and sedum blanket.

Bauder will be based on stand C6/D5 where you can view:
  • BauderBLUE, our sustainable drainage method designed to attenuate and manage stormwater on a flat roof over a 24-hour period via a restrictive flow outlet.
  • BauderROCK, our acoustic insulation for projects that require high levels of sound reduction.
  • Bauderflex, our robust, bituminous waterproofing system which is able to withstand foot traffic and most permanently sited plant.
  • BauderSOLAR, our risk-free, zero penetration photovoltaic solution for flat roofs which works as a single source for integrated design of waterproofing and PV.
The exhibition is a great chance to get to know our products in depth and to discuss any flat roofing projects.
