- Three slate roofs
- Two lead roofs
- Twelve electronic skylights
- Roof strengthening by doubling rafters and timberwork
We carried out an initial survey of the site, putting together a clear specification for the work that would be required and submitting a accompanying quotation. Once this was approved by the client, we managed the project from start to finish and completed it according to the agreed specification.
This project presented several technical and logistical challenges that we were able to address through thorough planning and coordination. The vaulted ceilings within the new office building required us to complete a roof strengthening programme, doubling up the rafters to account for where cross timbers had been removed within the original truss roof structure. There was also no access to the rear of the building, meaning that a scaffold was only permitted on the building’s façade. This meant that project planning had to accommodate the need to bring all materials up to the roof via this less direct route. Finally, the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted the initial project timings that had been agreed with the client. This meant that, although the work was meant to have been completed during the summer, it became a winter project instead. Where poor weather and snow prevented us from working on the roof exterior, we remained flexible and prioritised aspects such as timberwork instead.
