AAC reuses waterproof roof membrane in house built out of recycled materials

AAC reuses waterproof roof membrane in house built out of recycled materials (June 2014)

AAC Waterproofing has recycled its roof first used in the construction of a groundbreaking UK home to waterproof a new house made almost completely from used materials.

The Waste House has been built using nearly 20,000 toothbrushes, old video and music tapes, denim jeans and floppy discs among other items and materials destined for landfill.

AAC Waterproofing reused the rubber roofing membrane it originally supplied for Channel 4’s Grand Designs programme, ‘The House That Kevin Built’, in which one of the UK’s first A+ energy-rated houses was built in just six days.

The company, which employs 30, creates environmentally friendly ‘made-to-measure’ waterproof roof membranes from Prelasti EPDM at its Gaerwen factory, making it faster to install.

AAC Waterproofing Managing Director Ian Parry said: "Just like the original Grand Designs house build in London, this was a great project to be part of. It was amazing to see how so many different waste materials could be put to great use. I never thought I’d see toothbrushes used for insulation!

"The same architects from the Grand Designs programme worked on the Waste House, so they knew our product was green and durable enough to be reused. All we had to do was reinstall our material at the new site."

Prelasti EPDM has high environmental rating, a guarantee of 20 years and a life expectancy exceeding 50 years. Thanks to the material’s durability it has been used by AAC Waterproofing to roof TV adventurer Bear Grylls’ lighthouse off the North Wales coast and Snowdon’s summit café.

AAC Waterproofing was not the only North Wales company involved in the Waste House project. Holywell-based Kingspan also donated damaged panels that have insulated the home, together with the toothbrushes, VHS and old music tapes.

Despite the Waste House’s negative carbon footprint and 85% use of recycled materials, it is one of the few homes in the UK to gain an A-rated Energy Performance Certificate.

Students, apprentices, local builders and school children have all been involved with the project, with the ambition to train young people around emerging green industries.

Similar in size to a detached house, the Waste House will now function as Brighton University’s sustainability learning centre and will be one of the venues for the forthcoming Brighton Festival.

Double Certification - Super Cheryl leads Anglesey roofing business to new heights

Double Certification - Super Cheryl leads Anglesey roofing business to new heights

CHERYL Thomas modestly describes herself as Office Administrator for Gaerwen-based roofing specialists AAC Waterproofing.

But few admin staff can claim to have helped their company halve costs and win coveted industry certifications and accreditations while handling admin and managing reception.

Cheryl Thomas (left) with Laura Hibbert Financial Director AACThese are the achievements Cheryl and her proud employers are celebrating this week. AAC, which manufactures and installs waterproof rubber roofing for major construction projects around the UK, has been awarded ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications for its management and environmental practices.

Few roofing companies of AAC’s size hold these certificates, making Cheryl’s work all the more remarkable.

It took her 12 months to compile all the forms and procedures needed to make the company more efficient and more sustainable.

Thanks to her hard work and eagle eye, the company has drastically reduced its fuel and tool hire costs, and now has a 100% recycling rate.

She said: “The night before the final assessment, I couldn’t sleep. I was in before six to make sure everything was right.

When the assessor told me we’d passed, I was over the moon. It’s been really hard work but already everyone can see the benefits of it and I’m just so pleased for the company.”

Cheryl has worked for AAC Waterproofing for six years and lives in Llangefni. Next in her sights is reduced energy consumption.

AAC Waterproofing Managing Director Ian Parry said: “I know how capable Cheryl is, but to get both ISO certifications in one go is absolutely brilliant."

“We hold a lot of industry awards, including Investors in People, but this tops the lot. I’m so proud of what Cheryl’s achieved. Thanks to her, AAC is a fitter and stronger business.”
