There were numerous penetrations, chimneys, railings and lights situated all over the roof, so in order to make sure that no ponding water occurred, a cut-to-falls system was created.

A balcony railing system was devised and fixed to steel supports, making it intricate and involved to lay the insulation around and then asphalt.

All Sussex Asphalte’s craftsmen have studied at Hackney College and gained excellent levels of experience on contracts such as this, enabling them to run intricate projects with growing confidence.

The chargehand on-site, who has been with the company for nearly 20 years, has worked on sites such as St Pauls Cathedral, Brighton & Eastbourne Bandstand Royal Pavilion Brighton and Canterbury Cathedral.

With this experience, he was very competent in overcoming any unforeseen circumstances such as weather, intricate detailing and finishing projects on time and to a high standard.

According to the judges, good communication and sequencing form the basis of good project management, all of which was evident on this project.
