Sir Bernard Lovell School

The Brief: the existing school was suffering from numerous leaks from both the existing roof,roof lights and northlights.  The scheme was for the replacement of the northlight windows, rooflights and to provide a new roof finish. 

The Solution: Working with Beard Construction a specification was developed for the replacement works for the 21 classroom northlights, 120 rooflights and 5000m of roof area.  The proposed specification was for a liquid plastics membrane, laid over a new insulation layer to provide the necessary waterproofing and increase the thermal performance of the school.  The fast-track scheme had had to be completed whilst the school is operating adding an interesting angle on health and safety.
