wigram archives building
Design Group Stapleton Elliot
The project involved the construction of a new archive storage and office facility for New Zealand Archives. A Rooflogic system was specified for the main storage building where high levels of thermal performance and absolute weather-tightness were critical in maintaining a strictly controlled internal environment for the new facility.
Rooflogic proposed a system with 100mm of high performance RL PIR Insulation Board. Rooflogic specified its standing seam profile – Eurolok – which was roll formed on site to the precise, long lengths required and then installed with concealed fixings so that the roof had no laps or penetrations.
A previous archive facility that had been built with a composite insulated panel roof had performed poorly in respect to weather-tightness so the architect chose the Rooflogic system complete with a site run standing seam profile to guarantee weather-tightness on this critical facility.
Excellent thermal performance and verified system hygrothermal performance. The dangers of traditional “cold roofs” and the inability to manage condensation risk has been well documented on projects like this.
Roof ensured internal temperature could be maintained at precise levels.
Completely non-penetrated roof profile with no end lapping of sheets which would be required with a composite panel roof.
Accuracy and ease of installation with use of site run top skin profile.
