Type of works: supply of a complete roofing and rainwater package.
A complete package of roofing and rainwater solutions from Alumasc has been chosen for a new state-of-the-art secondary school in Nottingham.
The Becket School, based on a 12,000m2 campus, features the latest facilities for over 1,000 pupils, including science laboratories, technical workshops and a sports centre, all designed to put the school at the forefront of education for the 21st century.
A single source supplier was required for the roofing package and Alumasc was the only manufacturer able to supply a multi-product offer, with the added support of an approved installer network. The final specification included Alumascs Skyline aluminium fascias and soffits, Armaseam metal roofing, Guardian security rainwater pipes and Derbigum single layer waterproofing, all of which were installed by Everlast Waterproofing of Leeds.
Skyline fascias and soffits were specified on the Becket School to complement the Armaseam standing seam metal roofing system, also from Alumasc. Skyline provides a lightweight, durable and totally weatherproof solution in keeping with the modern appearance of the new school building with the benefits of efficient installation and minimal maintenance requirements. Manufactured from high quality, 100% recyclable polyester powder-coated aluminium, Skyline is available in four bold generic shapes plus bespoke designs.
Guardian downpipes complemented the Skyline system, offering a contemporary extruded aluminium design. Guardian is perfect for security conscious applications, with easy to install pipes fitting completely flush to the wall, making them unclimbable, ungrippable and resistant to vandalism. Compatible with all Alumasc aluminium gutter systems, Guardian is available in a wide range of colours and circular, square and rectangular profiles.
Finally, the Derbigum high-performance waterproofing membrane was chosen for its exceptional long-term performance and durability. BBA Approved, Derbigum is warranted for 25 years and manufactured under the ISO 14001:2004 and EMAS Environmental Management Standards. It is fire rated F.AA to BS476 Pt3 (EN1187 Pt4), the highest available rating, which allows unrestricted use under Building Regulations.
The main contractor at the project was Rok Building Limited.
