Wimbledon Park Primary School: Roofing & Refurbishment

Contract Value: £400,000

A school roofing and refurbishment project undertaken in South West London.

For the eight pitched roofs the works involved the removal of the existing coverings and installation of new plain clay tiles, upgrading insulation and replacement of guttering, fascia’s and soffit boards. The existing asphalt box gutters were coated in a high performance liquid waterproofing system and all associated leadwork replaced.

On six areas of flat roof the old waterproofing was removed and a new high performance built up felt system installed, working around an array of M&E units.

Due to well publicised supply chain issues it was not possible to undertake the project solely in the school holiday period, therefore all necessary safeguarding was put in place to ensure the safety of pupils, teachers and the public. Works were isolated due to its proximity to children and deliveries scheduled outside of school hours.

Even with the volatility currently being experienced within the market the project was completed within budget and highly commended by the NFRC.
