ARP has supplied a replacement aluminium rainwater system for Mount Gould Hospital in Plymouth. Mount Gould Hospital is part of the NHS Livewell Southwest and provides many healthcare services as well as being their headquarters.
The multi-building site houses numerous buildings, both modern and classic and the administration building, on Mount Gould Road was recently in dire need of a new roof. DFR Roofing had been awarded the contract to re-roof this stunning building and part of the contract included replacing rainwater products.
Paul Douglas, Managing Director of DFR Roofing called on ARP for help and advice, specifying that the replacement rainwater system should to be low maintenance, but in keeping with the character of the building. Upon inspection of the site ARP suggested that the existing Cast Iron be replaced with Cast Aluminium with its polyester powder coated colour offering a long term low maintenance option retaining its colour fastness, therefore requiring less repainting.
The products specified were ARP’s Legacy Cast Aluminium Moulded No. 46 Ogee 150 x 100 mm gutters, Colonnade 101 mm Circular Down Pipes and Colonnade Hoppers. Paul Douglas, Managing Director of DFR Roofing said “The product suited the requirements of the client, it was easy to install and the service ARP provided from site survey to product delivery was everything that was required”
