Aluminium rainwater and eaves systems manufacturer Marley Alutec, has designed and supplied a bespoke fascia and soffit solution and rainwater system for a major refurbishment project for Sheffield City Council, which will go on to transform 26,000 homes over the next five years – making it the largest roofing project in UK history.
Following a stringent tendering process, Marley Alutec’s aluminium products were specified because they met with the council’s commitment to provide housing and services that go beyond the industry standard.
In particular, the impressive durability, lifecycle costs, sustainability credentials and almost zero maintenance requirements of Marley Alutec’s products meant that they were a perfect fit for such a quality conscious project.
Phase one of the project involved remodelling a proportion of the flat roofed properties, including installation of external insulation to reduce thermal bridging and fuel poverty behind the fascias, as well as changing the roofs from being centrally to externally drained.
Janet Sharpe, Director of Housing and Neighbourhoods Service at Sheffield City Council, commented: "We need to attract the best contractors and suppliers to deliver the work, who will provide high quality solutions to fit our needs for the long term. We’re pleased to be working with Marley Alutec and are looking forward to seeing the end results.”
