A Challenging but Rewarding Project

Menai Science Park

MAC Roofing are specialist installers of all kinds of flat roofing systems. One of the challenging but rewarding projects we’ve delivered is Menai Science Park in Anglesey. Part of Bangor University, this project created a state-of-the-art laboratory and workshop space for over 700 people and was the first dedicated science park to be built in Wales. MAC were chosen by the main contractor to provide a range of warm roof waterproofing solutions on various flat roofs plus a feature sloping roof. We also provided a composite vertical cladding solution to the inner courtyard areas.

There was a combination of both concrete and metal decks and, as a result, MAC installed a variety of bituminous and polymeric single ply systems incorporating tapered insulation. The architect also wanted to create a building with stunning lines by using white Corian feature cladding and a specialist white single ply membrane with a lacquered finish.

The completed facility achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating and successfully met the client’s sustainability targets. It also won the prestigious ‘Best New Build Project’ at the 2019 SPRA Awards as well as an award in the Single Ply Roofing Category at the IMA Roofing Awards which we are all extremely proud of.
