Symington School, Ayr

Symington School, Ayr

Contractor: WM Skinner
Type of works: installation of Sika-Trocal Type S roof membrane.

With the continued commitment to invest in schools throughout the UK, South Ayrshire council has used the opportunity to replace the roof at Symington School in Ayr with a little expertise from Sika-Trocal and local contractor WM Skinner.

Given the state of the existing roof, and the school’s location on the West Coast of Scotland, the council wanted a long lasting and proven solution that could withstand the severe winds and high levels of rainfall. With a BBA certification which states a life expectancy in excess of 30 years, this was ample proof that the Sika-Trocal concept would be a perfect solution for the school.

Completed in spring 2009 by Sika-Trocal licensed contractor WM Skinner, who also acted as main contractor for the project, the project involved the installation of 2,000m2 of Sika-Trocal Type S membrane on to the school roof using the Sika-Trocal disc system to help speed up and simplify the installation process.

Tim Clark, National Sales Manager was delighted with yet another successful project in the education sector and commented: “This was another example of how quick and efficient our Sika-Trocal concept is. We’re getting an increasing number of enquiries from the education sector thanks to our credentials and our concept really helps set us apart from other single ply membrane suppliers. It’s the perfect showcase for the abilities of Sika-Trocal and our Licensed Contractors such as WM Skinner.”
