RLW was appointed by Kier Construction, the main contractor, to complete the roofing and cladding package for the apprentice centre on the University of Warwick campus. This case study highlights RLW’s role in the project, showcasing the use of various roofing and cladding materials and the successful collaboration with P&H Fabrications to meet the architect’s vision.
The project involved the construction of a new centre on the University campus. RLW was responsible for the roofing and cladding package, which included the installation of single ply roofs, external elevations, fascia and soffits.
For the roofs, RLW supplied a Tata profiled deck, insulated and waterproofed using Sarnafil’s mechanically fixed S327 membrane.
The external elevations featured a 150mm Kingspan Quadcore Benchmark composite panel, overclad with P&H Fabrications 2mm PPC aluminium cassette panels. This choice of cladding material and system ensured both aesthetic appeal, weather protection and met with strict air seal requirements.
Working closely with P&H Fabrications, RLW successfully met the architect’s requirements, delivering exceptional results in relation to a bespoke soffit and fascia to the main entrance.
