Project Details

Type                           Pitched Roofing

Duration                   20 weeks

Manufacturer          Eternit

Scope:

Erect access scaffold, working platforms and edge protection. Renew pitched and flat roof coverings in accordance with the Sandtoft and flat roofing manufacturer’s specification. Associated works included a refurbishment and demolition asbestos survey, renewal of fascias, soffits, lead box gutters and rainwater goods, replacement rooflights and decorations. The works commenced shortly before the school’s summer holidays requiring the scaffolding to be erected at weekends and out of hours. The main strip-off works were progressed during the 6 week holiday period with material deliveries and skip exchanges managed around the school’s Summer Club timetable. The roof areas all converged on a central busy thoroughfare leading from the playground into various classrooms and therefore sequencing of the works and effective segregation of the work areas from pupils and staff needed to be carefully managed by our Site Foreman throughout the works.
