ARP has provided a bespoke aluminium roofline and rainwater solution for Birkett House Community Special School in Leicestershire. Birkett House Community Special School has been designed and built to cater for the needs of up to 200 students aged between 5 and 19.
Hoyes Roofing and Cladding, a specialist roofing and cladding contractor based in Leicester won the roofing contract for the new build school. The new school building design incorporated a large curved mono pitch roof, bespoke fascia and soffit with double tiered hoppers. The design further included a butterfly roof and a considerable quantity of wall copings, along with downpipes and more hoppers.
Being a significant project, both Hoyes and ARP worked seamlessly together, with ARP ensuring the products were manufactured, coated and delivered in agreed phases - every two to three weeks another delivery was made to site ensuring smooth progression of the project. The designs for the Trueline fascia, soffit, wall copings, hoppers and double tiered hoppers were supplied to ARP, and their in-house CAD team interpreted the drawings and converted the bespoke designs into CAM drawings for production purposes.
Jon Hoyes, from Hoyes Roofing & Cladding said: "The biggest challenge for us was the design of the curved roof and getting the facet right. ARP worked with our schedule to provide the materials we needed a couple of days prior to installation, keeping the project on track.”
