The George Sloane Centre – Asbestos Encapsulation
The George Sloane Centre supports adults with a learning disability, by providing a specialist service including mainstream day care as well as directly serving people with complex or challenging needs.
The asbestos roof had become fragile in areas resulting in water penetrating through the cracks to the rooms below. It was essential that the centre remained open, therefore we designed a bespoke specification that would keep the downtime to a minimum and still achieve the 10yr guarantee.

Dacfill was recommended for its waterproofing qualities and its independent test certification for the encapsulation of asbestos cement sheeting.
Dacfill is a watertight water-based liquid membrane for roofs. Forms a lasting elastic coat without joint or seams on sloping roofs. (min. 5% slope)
