This project had a wide ranging number of detailing factors to overcome with cladding abutment details and change in levels to be redesigned and encompassed into a system that also drained the roof areas of their historic high levels of standing water. Some of the existing construction build had not taken into account any suitable maintenance of the roof with sections being completely un-accessible and thus reducing the performance of the waterproofing.
Solution and Installation
A design team formed with Surveyor /manufacturer /main contractor and roofing installer to resolve these issues and produce a stunning project.
The project was completed to a high-standard with:
• An impeccable track-record for on-site health and safety
• Implemented Safe2Torch best practice
• Ensured there was no disruption to the school and pupils which remained opened during the duration of the work
Testimony from the specifier, Robert Batley, associate surveyor at Frankhams:
“From the outset we knew that the project would be a significant challenge due to issues and detailing on site and that the design, products specified and installer would need to be of the highest standards available in order to overcome this. The unified approach of all parties working together to deliver a successful refurbishment for the school is clearly evident in project delivered”.
