This work took place as part of a refurbishment project, transforming offices to 35 one- and two-bed apartments. The roofing contractor was appointed to remove the old lead roof which was replaced with a brand-new warm-constructed single ply system with a standing-seam profile finish.
The installation was very involved—incorporating the mansard, dormer windows, front vertical panelling, and box gutters into the design. The contractor encapsulated the parapet copings with the membrane as a new capping to the outside edge. This proved difficult given the shape of original coping and the chamfered front edges.
Regular weekly toolbox talks were carried out to all DF Roofing operatives during the installation covering such topics as working at height, PPE and hygiene.
The judging panel were impressed with the quality of the finish achieved by the installation team.
