Ground gas protection at the ‘Whalley Range’, in Manchester.

PRS Ltd are were pleased to be awarded the gas membrane package for this development in Manchester.


The first phase of the development is a new low-rise 2000 square meter block of apartments. It is located on Princess street in Manchester city center. The project required a suitable ground gas and waterproofing system.  As a result,  PRS worked directly with Visqueen who are a leading industry manufacturer in ground gas protection systems. Visqueen designed a specification specifically for this project to provide a superb protection system. Because of this,  PRS were able to supply and install the system to the exact specification. It is designed so that the ground gas protection system will protect the ‘Whalley Range’ project, for its longevity and occupants health.


The use of Visqueen Vent Mat and VOC Blok formed the majority of the ground gas protection system, located in Manchester. The use welded joints in this system allows PRS to install the membrane, cheaper and to a lot higher standard. We were able to stick to schedule, work efficiently and effectively with other trades. Ultimately, we were able to provide a brilliant service for our client.


PRS have had the pleasure of working directly with Visqueens technical department for a number of years, allowing us to build a very good relationship with the global company. We are in constant contact with their technical managers who offer PRS daily advice, often coming to site meetings to check progress and advise for any on-site variations. This allows PRS to be flexible and durable where site plans may change and small problems will arise as the project progresses.
