Marley Alutec resolves asbestos risk for a college in Yorkshire

Marley Alutec resolves asbestos risk for a college in Yorkshire

Marley Alutec has created a bespoke Evoke fascia and soffit solution for a college in Yorkshire, allowing the site to safely overcome an asbestos problem.

Built in the 1950s, South Holderness Technical College was constructed with a flat roof using asbestos cement roof decking. As with many other buildings erected during this period, the harmful risk of asbestos had not yet come to light.

The soffits had been painted and cross contamination had occurred between the paint and asbestos, meaning any flaking paint posed a hazard to both students and staff.

When the Infrastructure and Facilities team at East Riding of Yorkshire Council wanted to eliminate the possibility of future exposure, Marley Alutec was approached to provide a solution.

The company’s technical department developed a bespoke Evoke fascia and soffit support system designed to encapsulate the existing soffit system and leave it undisturbed.

One of the main challenges was that in some areas the asbestos soffits were extremely wide so designing a system that could span that distance without the need to fix into the asbestos was difficult.

Marley Alutec partnered with the installer on-site to fix the fascia and soffit system into the external cladding rather than the asbestos itself.

Despite only being 4mm thick, the strength and rigidity of Marley Alutec’s aluminium Evoke solution also ensured that the system maintained its shape across large expanses.

The Evoke fascia and soffit system is made from a recycled polyethylene core, with 50+ year functional life expectancy with minimal maintenance.

Marley Alutec delivered the ideal bespoke solution for South Holderness Technical College, resolving the asbestos risk whilst complementing the building’s aesthetic and other materials used in the refurbishment.
