Langley Waterproofing Systems Ltd has helped London’s largest high school, Kingsbury High School, refurbish its roof ensuring it meets the highest standards.
Kingsbury High School approached specialist consultants, Capital Property and Construction Consultants (Capital PCC), to refurbish its facilities and help provide improved energy efficiency and weatherproofing for all its buildings.
Capital PCC called upon Langley to carry out a complete survey of the school’s existing 9,000m² roof system.
Langley compiled an in-depth report document detailing the findings from the condition survey and recommendations for improvement works.
The report allowed Langley to identify solutions to ensure the school was compliant with building regulations and highlighted complications with the school's current roof drainage system which required a full redesign of each roof area.
Langley worked closely with Capital PCC, and Langley approved contractors, Breyer Roofing to complete the first phase of the project on the Bacon Lane site – an area totalling 6,000m².
The roof’s unusual architectural design, which included a central block with two curved wings coming forward, meant that every roof was individually designed to accommodate the variation between the different roofs and remedy the drainage issues each roof presented.
Langley’s technical team were on hand to deliver support and advice throughout the project, including weekly site monitoring and regular meetings, resulting in a roof that has enabled the school to retain more heat, thanks to improved insulation.
