Donhead Preparatory School: Pitched Roofing
Contract Value: £150,000
A pitched roofing project for a school in South London
As former pupils we felt very privileged to be invited to consult and tender for the roofing works at this south London School.
Being involved from the outset allowed us to bring our many decades of experience to bear, make recommendations for the project and produce a specification. This included designing health and safety systems and processes to enable the work to be carried out safely. We introduced insulation to reduce the client’s future heating bills and improve the atmosphere within the building and we sourced first class Spanish slates as replacement roof coverings. Given the age and prominence of the prominent building code 6 and 7 lead were used.
Writing a first class specification is only half of the storey. The implementation and management of the installation is the other! This we managed with two of our first class slating teams and close supervision and interaction with the client by our contracts management team.
