The South Brighton Surf Club, formed in 1929, has had multiple renovations over its lifetime but this latest rebuild was determined by the Canterbury 2011 earthquakes. The building suffered several major structural and aesthetic issues, and after looking at various repair options it was decide that a full rebuild was required.
The rebuild was designed by Sheppard & Rout Architects, and the highly detailed design is now the beautiful home to one of the largest surf clubs in Canterbury with over 350 members. The visible roof is an integral part of the building design, and the roofing membrane selection and installation was required to be high-end to align with the building aesthetic.
The Duotherm warm roof consists of the DuO two-layer membrane applied over a PIR insulation board and vapour barrier. This guarantees a continuous and efficient thermal resistance (R-value) as per the New Zealand Building Code. The exterior balconies were completed with the Chevaline Dexx membrane system with wooden decking installed over top. Chevaline Dexx is a liquid applied, reinforced waterproofing membrane system. This was also installed in the bathroom and changing room areas as the membrane is a great solution for wet areas as it provides highly durable, economic waterproofing.
The systems comply with the New Zealand Building Code, and the DuO membrane holds a current BRANZ appraisal.
