Glazing Installation & Roof Refurbishment
Our client had a complex domed roof glazing detail which was allowing water ingress into the shopping facility. Using specialist scaffolding and rope access equipment, Roofing Consultants encapsulated the entire glazing detail using a specialist reinforced glazing bar coating and a specialist transparent coating to the entire glazed area to encapsulate and provide a fully seamless watertight finish.
With the Corn Exchange being situated where it is, there was very little room for scaffolding. Therefore, we were faced with a very complex situation where roof access conditions were tight and at times, impossible. To tackle the job successfully we employed a skilled rope access team, working closely alongside our roofing operatives to gain safe access to all sections of the glazing.
In total the project took just 6 weeks to complete, a relatively short space of time considering the scale and difficulty of the project. Throughout the job, senior technical supervisors from both TOR Coatings and ourselves oversaw proceedings. After completion, the client was provided a 10 year watertight guarantee.
The project was entered into the 2014 National Federation of Roofing Contractors Awards and became the eventual winner. The judgement is made on various elements, such as difficulty, H&S and environmental qualities.
