Roofing made eavesy-peasey

- ultra-long roof sheets at alconbury WEALD -

A new video of our Euroseam product being manufactured and installed has been causing quite a stir. The video shows the production, layout and installation of 140m long sheets on the roof of a new bespoke facility at Alconbury Weald. The sheets were ‘rolled at eaves’, manufactured directly onto the roof for a fast, easy access solution that is probably the only way to get such long sheets onto a roof.

Phil Cook, Euroclad’s Managing Director, was one of the first to see the video and is one of its biggest fans, commenting: “This is probably the first time that we’ve been able to convey the sheer scale, organisation and professionalism of Euroclads roll-at-eaves process and the specialist teams who manufacture and install them.”

We love this video and would be happy to keep waxing lyrical about it. Seeing for yourself is far more effective though, so click on the image to take a look

Roofing Refresh

Kingsdown School in Stratton St Margaret, Swindon, has recently given its sports and leisure centre a brand new roofing system using Euroclad’s specialist Elite Refresh system.
After acquiring Kingsdown Leisure Centre in 2011, Kingsdown School refurbished the centre to create a state-of-the-art sports facility. The school then made the decision to upgrade the building’s roof when the existing one proved to be nearing the end of its life. Euroclad’s Elite Refresh system was chosen for the job in order to take advantage of the benefits that are inherent in Elite Systems, supplied as a tailored solution for refurbishment. The 12-week project was installed by Mitie Roofing, who refurbished the deteriorating roof to make it fit for purpose once again, installing the 32/1000 Euroclad external profile as part of the Elite Refresh system, manufactured using Colorcoat Prisma prefinished steel in Metallic Silver.

Elite Refresh provides a way to increase building longevity, whilst improving thermal and acoustic performance, by over-cladding an existing structure. The recently developed Elite Refresh systems offer many of the benefits available with standard Elite Systems and can be adapted to suit various existing construction types, from fibre cement to composite panel. To meet the unique requirements of each project a combination of top-hat sections, the Quattro spacer system and quilt insulation is used in conjunction with any of the external sheets available in the standard Elite Systems range, depending upon project specifics.

The installation took place during the school’s term time, which required the sports centre for lessons. The Mitie installation team were faced with the challenge of keeping the facility fully operational and safe for the pupils whilst installing the Elite Refresh system. As the installation took place over the winter, the installers also had to ensure that rain did not leak into the building and create a hazard for pupils inside.

The overall project required part of the roof to be removed and replaced, whilst other parts of the roof could simply be refurbished. Elite Refresh proved to be the ideal solution, offering the performance and flexibility to suit both the over-cladding and strip-and-replace parts of the roof, whilst enabling Mitie to ensure the safety of the work and study environment with minimal interruptions to the daily running of the school.

FLASHINGS FINISH TOP OF THE CLASS AT NEW SCHOOLS

— 21st CENTURY CURRICULUM —
This Autumn sees four new schools open in South Wales as part of a scheme to improve and advance educational facilities to deliver a 21st Century Curriculum. The overall project, headed by Willmott Dixon Construction, includes two newly built schools in the boroughs of Caerphilly and Torfaen, and two redevelopments of existing sites, also located in Torfaen.
The construction works have involved many companies supplying their services or products, including Euroclad’s specialist Elite Plus 4 Roofing System and tailored flashings for all four buildings. The advanced roofing systems were specified and installed – using a local workforce – by industrial roofing and cladding specialists, ABS Elbrow.
Pete Field, Director at ABS Elbrow commented, “We have much experience of working with and installing Euroclad’s products and systems, which encouraged the decision to use them for this project. Construction work is still underway however we are pleased with the result of the new roofing systems.”

Euroclad also supplied bespoke metal flashings which were used to complete thousands of metres of perimeter across the four buildings. Flashings are a crucial addition to Euroclad’s Elite Plus 4 Roofing systems as they close off the building envelope and prevent water or rainfall from penetrating the building joints. This helps to maintain the structure of the building and prevent deterioration or damage from wet weather conditions.

The flashings provided to ABS Elbrow for installation were stocked and held ahead of time at Euroclad’s manufacturing base in Cardiff. The material was delivered as a coil and then flattened, folded and cut according to the measurements of each of the school buildings. This allowed for a quick lead time of up to 48 hours from the initial order to delivery, so that the installation and construction work was not delayed. Euroclad’s specialist flashings team works closely with contractors to ensure that an accurate system is produced, with the aim of achieving a flawless finished installation. The flashings are manufactured on state-of-the-art press brakes and folding machines for the highest quality finish.

For project specific flashing quotations, get in touch with our dedicated flashing pricing team. Bespoke material utilisation software and vast material stock, combined with dual shift manufacturing and an experienced logistics planning team, allow for accurate quotations and short delivery lead-times across the length and breadth of  the UK.
