Type                     Flat Roofing

Duration             20 weeks

Manufacturer   Bauder

Scope:

Acclaim Contracts have worked with Bedford Borough Council on a number of school projects under a Term Contract arrangement. This project was completed over a 20 week period between September and February so the school was fully operational for 17 of those 20 weeks. The roofing gang working on Beauchamp all came from the Bedford area which significantly reduced travel time and costs with resulting environmental benefits.

A significant number of roof lights were replaced and the sequence and timing of their replacement was carefully planned to minimise disruption to the pupils and staff and manage the health and safety risks. Some of the existing internal rainwater drainage was found to be blocked underground resulting in a number of new chutes being installed to divert rainwater to new external downpipes.
