Turves Green Girls school was built in 1938 and was no longer fit for purpose. Balfour Beatty’s plan was to keep this outdated school open whilst the new build was constructed in front of the existing campus. Working with Balfour Beatty, the challenge was to complete the roofing and facade works whilst the school was still operational only yards away. Our complete roofing and facade package commenced just as lockdown began. This wrought additional challenges dealing with the global shortage of materials, unexpected price increases, and the ever-changing challenges of COVID restrictions and guidelines. Despite all this, the project was delivered on time and within budget.
RLW roofing was responsible for the supply and installation of one of the UK’s first Sikabit roofing systems, a new self-adhesive advanced bituminous membrane.
The external walls were a combination of Corium brick slip cladding and Euroclad Vieo standing seam, fixed directly to the SIPS panel substructure using a helping hand bracket subframe.
