The roof was originally covered in mineral felt and had air conditioning units scattered over the 5000m2. However, the mineral felt had failed; this had caused water ingress into the building below from areas on the roof where standing water had formed. To identify these areas, a thermal image was taken of the roof. The areas that had saturated insulation had to be replaced prior to coating.
