Alumasc’s Euroroof rises to the challenge for Bradford’s Hovis Factory

Posted by david.luukas

Alumasc’s Euroroof waterproofing system has been installed on the 3200 m2 roof at Hovis’ prestigious bread-baking factory in the heart of Bradford, protecting this iconic building against water ingress and helping maintain the viability of bread production at the site in Gain Lane, Bradford.


The factory’s previous roof waterproofing system had become severely compromised over time and needed replacing after multiple patchwork repairs to extend its serviceable life.

HOVIS2Alumasc  were chosen to design, supply and install a complete new roof waterproofing system without impacting the working of this busy food-production facility.

The first task was to take off the old mineral surfaced roof waterproofing system and prepare the existing roof deck.

A Euroroof vapour barrier was then laid to provide immediate protection for this fully operational factory, and replaced the original skylights with Naturalight Barrel Vault rooflights, so that production could be maintained without interruption.

Next, a fully engineered Alumasc PIR thermal insulation scheme was laid, before the Euroroof Rapid waterproofing system was torch applied.

Hovis Group Engineering Operations Manager commented: “We now have a high-quality roof waterproofing system protecting our iconic bread-baking factory in the heart of Bradford, where we produce our much-loved Hovis bread products”.
