So get in touch with us to see how we can help you.

We are currently working with and supporting a whole host of schools throughout the country. Here’s the evidence:

Portslade Academy

Portslade Aldridge Community Academy is based in the heart of the bustling Portslade, Brighton. The school site is comprised of 24 roofs, covering an area of a whopping 4000m2.

The school was able to successfully apply for CIF funding and working with IKO, put the contract out to tender to a pool of IKO approved contractors. Eastbourne based Clarke Roofing joined the team and installed the IKO Ultra Prevent built-up system.

The work was phased to minimise disruption to pupils and staff, with intrusive work carried out during summer months. The end result was a high-grade waterproofing solution with an insurance backed 25-year single point guarantee and a 0.18W/mK U-Value, minimising the school’s energy bills.

Highgate Wood School, London

This project had a wide-ranging number of detailing factors to overcome with cladding abutment details and changes in levels to be redesigned and encompassed into a system that also drained the roof areas where historically water had pooled.

Parts of the existing building also had roof sections that were completely inaccessible for routine maintenance, significantly reducing the performance of the waterproofing.

With a unified approach, we were able to assess the roofing condition, implement a Safe2Torch best practice schedule and ensure there was no disruption to the school and pupils. In fact, the school remained open for the duration of the work. Let us know your requirements and how we can help.
