Client: Gedling Borough Council
Contractor: Ashgate Roofing Systems Ltd
Type of works: refurbishment of a 20-year old memrbane, using 2,500m2 of Rhenofol CV roof membranes, supplied by SIG Design & Technology.
After 20 years, the original Rhenofol CV membrane fitted to the Richard Herrod Centre had started to reach the end of its life. This busy leisure centre houses six indoor bowling greens, as well as conference and community facilities, and Gedling Borough Councils Building Department chose FDT Rhenofol CV 1.5mm Light Grey membrane as an economical overlay that will protect its roof for at least another 20 years.
The new membrane was installed using the unique Rhenofol 'strip and paste' method over a 40mm Celotex foil board, to upgrade the roof insulation to current Building Regulation standards. Work on the 2,500m2 project started in September 2009 and was completed, tested and handed over within six weeks.
A full perimeter handrail system from Evorail is being installed by Harcon Services, working closely with Ashgate Roofing Systems. This will enable a far safer method of working for future access to the roof-mounted plant and, in turn, brings the building up to the safety standards now expected of Public Buildings.
Another fine example of partnering between SIG Design & Technology and Ashgate Roofing.
