The Challenge:

This warehouse was previously occupied by Argos and upon them leaving the whole warehouse including roof, cladding and building fabric were in need of renovation and refurbishment.

We were involved with this project from survey stage assisting the Contractor Administrators, tmd Building Consultancy Ltd in putting together a roofing specification for the roof and cladding.

The challenge was to prolong the life of the existing roof providing a warranty including all roof lights, gutters and cladding to ensure it increased the life expectancy of the roof sheets and also increased the natural roof light in this circa 33,000m² warehouse.

The Solution:

It was clearly the end Client’s wishes to end up with a guaranteed roof, gutters and cladding on completion but due to the vast size of the unit the budget was obviously a key factor. Therefore, it was decided to refurbish the roof rather than replace the existing or over sheet.

At this stage following discussions between C&W Industrial Roofing and tmd Building Consultancy Ltd Liquasil were instructed to carry out a full roof survey and put together a roofing specification for the Liquasil Metalseal Metal Roof Covering System.

The full roof, rooflight, cladding and gutter specification was agreed and CWI were instructed carryout the works.

The Results:

The Client was left with a 12 year latent defects guarantee on the roof and gutters with a life expectancy of 25 years at a fraction of the cost of over sheeting or replacement.

The programme was a factor with this project, there was a 40 week programme in total. The works commenced spring 2018 and completed early 2019 ultimately delivering the unit to the Client on time.
